Program Overview

The Golf in Schools Program was created by Golf Canada in partnership with PGA of Canada and Physical and Health Education Canada (PHE Canada).

The initial element of the program is focused on assisting Canadian school teachers (specialists and non-specialists) with and without a background in golf, to plan and deliver quality learning experiences using golf as the vehicle. Developed by the Physical and Health Education Canada (PHE Canada) in partnership with Golf Canada and the PGA of Canada, the learning resource was designed to meet the learning outcomes of school curriculums across Canada.
