Golf Ontario has been providing financial assistance annually to deserving student golfers throughout Ontario who are continuing their education at the post-secondary level since 1994. This scholarship program, made possible with the support of our corporate partners and sponsors, allows us to award multiple scholarships each year that support student golfers and their post-secondary education dreams.

Back in 2016, Golf Ontario celebrated a milestone as the association surpassed $500,000 in scholarship funds awarded since the program’s inception. Three years later in 2019, $596,000 in total has now been awarded to hundreds of recipients.
