Get Linked Initiative

“Developing a Link Between the Golf in Schools Program and Local Golf Facilities

The Objective

The Future Links, driven by Acura Golf in Schools (GIS) program has been introduced to nearly 3,500 elementary schools since its inception in 2009, and over 300 high schools since 2012. The program continues to grow each year, with more and more new young Canadians being introduced to the sport in their physical education classes. 

The natural next step to growing youth participation in the game of golf in Canada is to connect kids introduced to the game through the in-school program with 'green grass facilities’ engaged in delivering best in class junior golf programs, to further introduce the sport and assist in developing a passion for golf.

What is "Get Linked"?

Through the development of the ‘Get Linked’ initiatives, Golf Canada is strengthening the link between schools running the Future Links, driven by Acura Golf in Schools program and facilities engaged in delivering Future Links, driven by Acura programs. Under the ‘Get Linked’ umbrella, there are two concepts that will assist in bringing us closer to this vision. More information on the two initiatives can be found below:
