Golf Canada partners with First Tee to establish First Tee – Canada


Golf Canada and First Tee have partnered to launch First Tee – Canada in 2021. The partnership will bring First Tee’s youth development emphasis to strengthen Golf Canada’s junior golf activities that reach kids in schools and at golf facilities. The innovative First Tee curriculum will focus on empowering young people to build their strength of character through the game of golf. Multiple chapters are targeted to launch in 2021 with a growth strategy to establish chapters in markets across Canada through 2023.

Golf Canada will serve as the national headquarters and the PGA of Canada will play a leading role in the training of coaches. Golf Canada Foundation will be a critical partner in supporting the launch and advancement of First Tee – Canada through its fundraising and philanthropic efforts, through its deep network of donors and trustees. Additionally, Golf Canada will continue to work with other key industry stakeholders such as Canada’s Provincial Golf Associations and the NGCOA Canada (National Golf Course Owner’s Association) towards a more inclusive golf experience for Canadian youth.
