The Golf Pledge is a fundraising effort created to support groups creating opportunities for kids to be introduced to the game of golf and the values it teaches- determination, integrity, respect and perseverance, to name a few.
Our goal is to tap into the passion golfers have for their support to raise money through donations and other initiatives that support groups giving back to the sport.
Who We Support
First Tee – Canada is a youth development program offered by Golf Canada that introduces the game of golf and its inherent values to young people. Through after school and in school programs, First Tee helps shape the lives of young people from all walks of life by reinforcing values like integrity, respect and perseverance through the game of golf. And it’s making a difference.
Young people in First Tee programs are:
• More confident in school
• Supported by coaches, who they view as caring mentors
• Active community members
• Always welcome, regardless of financial circumstances
We are avid golfers who have been looking for a way to give back in our communities and the game of golf. Each of us was brought into the sport by someone- a parent, friend or relative who taught us the basics and made it accessible. It is our goal for this program to provide that same opportunity in an affordable fashion to young people across Canada.
The idea was born on the golf course, with the simple acknowledgement that many of us can afford to pay a few dollars more per round to give back, as long as it goes to the right cause.
