The British Columbia Golf Player Development Trust Fund (PDTF) provides junior and graduating junior golfers access to the sport of golf and the opportunity to develop their skills to their full potential, regardless of financial circumstances.
The Player Development Trust Fund provides:
Financial assistance to attend British Columbia Golf sanctioned events;
Bursaries and scholarships for post-secondary education;
Funding for professional coaching at local, provincial and national events, as well as individual coaching programs.
The PDTF is a registered charity under the National Sport Trust Fund and has no overhead so donations go directly to players and programs. British Columbia Golf covers all administration and management costs. A volunteer Board of Directors, operating independently of British Columbia Golf, manages the fund and determines how its assets are distributed. In 2010, the PDTF distributed approximately $35,000 for player assistance, coaching and scholarships. 100% of all money received is distributed.

The PDTF relies heavily on funding coming from individual and corporate supporters, as well as golf clubs that hold fundraisers. All corporations and individuals making donations receive a receipt for tax purposes.
PDTF Financial Assistance
The PDTF provides a contribution toward helping with entry fees, travel, accommodation and other associated expenses for young amateur golfers in need of financial support to attend British Columbia Golf sanctioned events.
British Columbia Golf, in conjunction with the BC Junior Golf Association, awards 10 scholarships of $1,000 each annually to promising young “scholastic golfers” to assist them with tuition and other educational expenses in pursuing a post-secondary education.
