Take A Kid To The Course
July 8-14, 2013

NGCOA Canada members will offer free golf to kids under the age of sixteen who are accompanied by a paying adult during the Take A Kid to the Course program taking place July 8-14, 2013.

Developed by the National Golf Course Owners Association Canada to encourage families and juniors to take up the game of golf, this cross-Canada campaign is designed to illustrate how easy it is to improve both your score and your relationship with your children by bringing them out to the golf course.

In addition to the free golf, certain courses will offer additional programming.  Please call your local participating course to book your tee times in advance. A map featuring over 620 Canadian participating courses is available at www.kidsgolffree.ca.

“Golf provides kids with valuable life skills, such as perseverance, patience, and respect,” states Jeff Calderwood, CEO of the National Golf Course Owners Association Canada. “They will enjoy quality time with family and friends and experience an activity that takes them away from the computer and into the great outdoors.”

Merit Golf Vacations has generously donated the Grand Prize consisting of roundtrip airfare to Orlando, Florida, 3-nights’ accommodation (deluxe guest room) at the Hammock Beach Golf Resort in Palm Coast, including two rounds of golf with a golf cart and advanced tee times and a car rental.

The NGCOA Canada thanks the National Sponsors; Coca-Cola Bottling Company, Dollco Printing, Merit Golf Vacations and My Mini Golf.

The National Golf Course Owners Association Canada is a not-for-profit trade association representing close to thirteen hundred members.
