RBC Community Junior Golf Program
About The Program
Introducing the RBC Community Junior Golf Program, an RBC initiative in partnership with Golf Canada that will build greater diversity and equity in golf by enabling affordable access to the game for youth in underrepresented communities in Canada.
PGA TOUR professional golfer Harold Varner III will join Team RBC and serve as an ambassador for the new program.
As part of the RBC Community Junior Golf Program, Golf Canada will implement the First Tee – Canada and Youth on Course programs at municipal and especially accessible public golf courses across Canada. By 2023, the program is expected to engage more than 10,000 young people by delivering free First Tee programing, which integrates the game of golf with life skills curriculum and $5 Youth on Course green fees to select courses from coast to coast.
As founder of the HV3 Foundation and National Ambassador for Youth on Course, Varner will lend his expertise as an advisor to the RBC Community Junior Golf Program. In September 2021, Varner hosted the program’s launch event at Humber Valley Golf Course in Toronto where youth from the Boys and Girls Club of Rexdale as well as junior participants from ‘Tee it Up for Success’ spent time with Varner, learning tips from the pro and benefiting from on-course programming.
