Local golf clubs Innisfil Creek and Tangle Creek are taking part in the Golf Gives Back program this summer, encouraging youth to get on the green.
Golf Gives Back was created in the Summer of 2020, to introduce juniors and their families to the game of golf when most, if not all, other recreational sports were cancelled due to COVID-19, as well as to raise much-needed funds for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada.
Again, for the 2021 season, they are providing partnering courses with eight sets of Cobra junior clubs, running a sweepstakes, but what’s different this year is the affiliation with Golf Ontario. All proceeds from this season’s sweepstakes will be going to establish Golf Ontario’s First Tee program at BGC Canada centres in the Greater Toronto Area.
“In these extraordinary times, kids and families need our support more than ever,” says Rachael MacKenzie-Neill, VP of Marketing & Development, BGC Canada. “We are thrilled to be the recipient of this amazing initiative that gets kids active, makes sport accessible, and raises money that will help BGC Clubs continue to offer life-changing programs and services in communities across the country.”
There are three ways to get involved this summer and help give back to the community!
- Free Entry! Simply by becoming a member of the Golf Gives Back community, there’s a chance to win golf passes, COBRA PUMA golf prizes, and club fittings from Modern Golf!
- Donate and enter the Sweepstakes for a chance to Win! By making a donation to BGC Canada, there are chances to win even bigger prizes, including the Grand Prize consisting of $15,000 in Cash and a $5,000 Prize pack from Cobra Puma Golf. Many other prizes are also available! The contest runs until September 6, 2021
- Free for Juniors! Any time a junior borrows a set of the Cobra Junior Clubs from one of the participating courses, they will receive a ballot for a chance to win their very own set! The contest closes August 15, 2021. For a list of participating courses to bring your aspiring junior golfer to, visit the website.
