National Golf League supports of First Tee – Canada
With the 2023 golf season in the rear view mirror, it’s time to look back on some of the endeavours both on and off the course Golf Manitoba, Golf Canada and its members accomplished.
New this season was the BDO National Golf League, a nationwide, season-long competition created by Golf Canada to enhance the league experience for men, women, and junior players.

In addition to enhancing your existing league experience, participation in the BDO National Golf League supports First Tee – Canada, a youth development program striving to bring accessible and inclusive pathways to golf participation at schools, community centres, and golf courses across the country.
There is no registration fee to play in the BDO National Golf League. Instead we’re asking every participating player for a $50 tax-deductible donation to their province’s First Tee chapter. All donations will stay within your province, so you can feel good knowing that your gift will help youth right here at home.
