The PGA of British Columbia, in partnership with the Vancouver Canucks and BC Hockey, share a belief in the importance of young athletes learning motor skills through participation in various sports. Accordingly, we are proud to once again host Canucks Junior Golf Week presented by Odlum Brown Limited from July 2 to 9, 2017.
Now entering its fourth year, Canucks Junior Golf Week will be open to children and youth aged 5-18 years at dozens of golf facilities throughout British Columbia. Participants will effectively learn the game of golf through certified PGA of BC-instructed, single-day camps in their respective communities.
The skills developed through golf complement those of other sports, including hockey, while participating in golf also imparts important life skills such as honesty, sportsmanship, responsibility, integrity and respect. Participants will learn the benefits of staying active while exploring the game of golf, all the while meeting new friends and having fun. Canucks Junior Golf Week camps are practical for young golfers of all experience levels, including those who have previously never picked up a club. The initiative has introduced hundreds of British Columbia youth to the sport for the first time since launching in 2014.
The cost for a one-day camp during Canucks Junior Golf Week is only $20 (+GST), which includes equipment rental (if required), facility fees, an item of apparel featuring the Vancouver Canucks logo, and certified golf instruction. The length of each camp will vary depending on facility, the number of attendees and the general age of the participants, however camps are estimated to run for approximately two hours.
In addition to exclusive presenting sponsor Odlum Brown Limited, the PGA of British Columbia would like to thank contributing sponsors Cleveland Golf-Srixon Canada and the British Columbia Society of Orthodontists for their continued support of Canucks Junior Golf Week.
