Canucks Junior Golf Week returns this summer

APRIL 20, 2017

RICHMOND, BC (PGA of British Columbia) -- Back by popular demand, the PGA of British Columbia, in partnership with the Vancouver Canucks, is proud to once again host Canucks Junior Golf Week presented by Odlum Brown Limited.

Canucks Junior Golf Week will take place July 2-9, 2017, featuring more than 40 camps for youth located at golf facilities throughout British Columbia. Children aged 5-18 years old will have fun learning the game of golf from certified PGA of British Columbia-instructed golf camps in their respective communities.

Boys and girls from all sports and all skill levels are encouraged to register -- no previous golf experience is necessary to participate! Nearly 2,000 kids have taken part in Canucks Junior Golf Week since 2014, and the vast majority were introduced to the sport for the first time.

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 by facility, the number of attendees and the general age of the participants, but camps would be estimated to be approximately two hours in length.

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 active support of this junior golf initiative.
