Golf Canada, in partnership with the PGA of Canada, operates a variety of national programs aimed at introducing golf to juniors. These programs include:
Junior Skills Challenge is an online and interactive program that focuses on developing the key golf skills of putting, chipping and driving. An online leaderboard allows site coordinators to upload players’ scores so they can track their improvement. Using the data, players are ranked nationally by age group, and by scores on the National Leaderboard. The top ranked players from local events go on to compete in their respective Junior Skills Challenge Provincial Qualifiers. Top competitors nationally are invited to compete in the annual Junior Skills Challenge National Event.
