Field Trip Program

Program Purpose

The Future Links, driven by Acura Field Trip program is an initiative to transition Golf in Schools participants to Future Links, driven by Acura ‘active’ sites across Canada.  Golf in Schools is a program, offered by Golf Canada, to all elementary and high schools in the country.  By registering for the program, schools are provided with the necessary resources (equipment, curriculum and training) which enables teachers to integrate golf into their ongoing, day to day teaching curriculum and meet the learning outcomes required by their respective Boards of Education.

Field Trip Program

One of the specific objectives of the Golf in Schools program is to create links between education communities and golf communities so that students have a greater understanding of where they can get access to regular youth golf programs.  It is our goal to ensure that all school children have a positive golf course experience (hence directing them to facilities engaged in the Future Links, driven by Acura program) and are aware of their next steps within their community with respect to golf.

Field Trip Grant

All active Future Links, driven by Acura facilities will be eligible to receive a $500 grant through this program.  The grant’s objective is to assist in off-setting costs involved in hosting a school at their facility (does not have to be the whole school – numbers dependent on programming availability). Programming delivered by the facility will be dependent on their capacity and capabilities and up to the facility to determine the best-case scenario.  Programming will range from a tour of the clubhouse and course to a putting lesson, to time on the driving range.
