The week of May 28 to June 1 is being celebrated by Golf Canada as the national organization partners with industry groups to drive interest and fundraising efforts in support of the Future Links Golf in Schools program.
The Adopt a School program teed off in 2009, adoptions are being attributed to close to 50 percent of the schools delivering the initiative. In 2017, 266 schools were adopted introducing the sport to an average of 120 students in each school. Overall more than 420,000 students coast-to-coast are being reached and introduced to the sport.
Golf in Schools provides programming for students from grades 1 to 12. More details on the program can be found here. Golf Saskatchewan is purchasing an elementary school kit as well as an intermediate kit.
