Golf Communities

What is a Golf Community?

A Golf Community is a collective group of local golf stakeholders (owners, operators, Pro's, players, enthusiasts, etc...) working together to drive more people to play more golf, more often, starting at a younger age.


Community Grants

Golf Ontario is committed to supporting Communities and the programs and events they are running, through the development of a community grant program.  Community grants are available for a variety of programs and events.

Why are we building Golf Communities?

We have been listening!


The growth of our game, and any programs developed to support our game, are only successful if they provide added value to our local golf communities.  When local golf communities come forward ready to work together, Golf Ontario will support local efforts that drive new and returning golfers to TRY, LEARN & PLAY golf at local golf facilities.
