Golf Challenge Program – Golf Industry Network

In recent years, a number of unique Canadian golf programs have been launched to help those who love the game of golf but face physical or mental challenges. There are many golf volunteers and facilities that deserve recognition for taking the time to help and assist participants who have limited abilities to learn and play golf.

One such program is called Challenge Golf in Oakville, Ontario. Challenge Golf, offers ample opportunities for camaraderie, providing, at specific times, in an accessible venue; equipment (standard or specially designed); tips; and the encouragement of volunteers who will allow participants to learn and play golf to the limit of their abilities.

The Tee Zone driving range that serves the western part of the GTA and its owners Bot Construction Group provide Challenge Golf with the space and equipment to help every golfer.

Recently, the Golf Journalists Association of Canada recognized this unique program and donated $1,000.00 to help with development and growth.
