Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Golf Canada. Volunteers are the heartbeat of our organization and seek to create welcoming environments that encourage and support engagement in the sport of golf so that Golf Canada better reflects the rich diversity of Canada in all aspects of our organization. 

With nearly 6,000 volunteers nationwide, Golf Canada is continuously looking to expand its volunteer community through the various roles within our amateur championships, professional championships, and youth development program. We heavily rely on the collaboration of our governance volunteers as they support the organization mission, vision and values through their involvement as Committee, Council and Board members.  

Golf Canada embraces an environment where diversity, equity, and inclusion are cultural norms and where all individuals regardless of race, language, national or ethnic origin, citizenship, Indigenous identity, colour, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status, family status, genetic characteristics, disability, or any other protected ground are respected and valued.
