Junior Golf

Our vision at British Columbia Golf is to introduce and grow the sport of golf by providing everyone in the province the opportunity to participate in a sport that promotes their physical, mental and emotional well-being.

Golf is one of the only sports that has values such as honesty and integrity built right into the game. It is important children are taught these lessons so they can discover how to use them in a variety of situations they face at home, school, during sports and play, and in everyday social interaction.

British Columbia Golf Is Committed To Safe Sport - With An Inclusive, Respectful Environment For All Golfers

Sport organizations in British Columbia are committed to creating a sport that is accessible, inclusive, respects their participant's personal goals and is free from all forms of Maltreatment.

As such, British Columbia Golf fully supports that protecting children and youth is everyone's responsibility.

As a part of this role we offer access to information on how to report any situation where one has reason to believe that a child or youth is subject to situations where safety and well-being may be compromised.

First Tee – British Columbia offers accessible and inclusive programming at golf courses, schools, and community centres with unique curriculum, equipment, and training requirements for each.
