Divots Indoor Golf in Regina has signed on to be a major sponsor of the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour events in Saskatchewan.
The partnership will see Divots become the official scoring sponsor of the six events in Saskatchewan during the 2020 Maple Leaf Junior Tour (MJT) season. Divots co-owner Alyx Larocque said the partnership began when a young golfer was preparing for the MJT National Championship this season at their facility. The ownership team saw how determined the young player was to get better and how excited he was to participate in his first MJT event. The ownership team knew they had to get involved.
“It’s awesome that the kids can participate in this kind of stuff, especially over the summer months,” she said. “To build the sport with a younger generation, we thought it was a great idea. At the end of the day we could sponsor 100 hockey teams with little stuff, or we could go back to the roots. We are a golf business, let’s put some money towards golf programs in the province.”
Divots is a state-of-art premium indoor golf facility in Regina with seven PGA approved aboutGolf® simulators and 80 courses to choose from. The 5,800 square foot business is open from October to late April each year. Larocque said the ownership group is happy to give back to youth in the Queen City no matter what activity they choose.
“At the end of the day any kind of positive activity for kids is a good activity, if kids are staying busy they are staying out of trouble. They build life skills going forward, and if it’s something they really enjoy you can play into your 40’s, 50’s, even your 60’s if you want. With golf you can play the game your whole life. As a business you have to give back as well, it’s a win-win for everybody,” Larocque said.
