The GolfBC Group is pleased to follow-up the launch of the “Kids Play Free at GolfBC” and “Take-a-kid to the course week” programs by further committing to grow the great game of golf.

To receive Beginner Friendly certification is a great honour for GolfBC and further strengthens our commitment to growing the game of golf. We are committed to ensuring GolfBC is recognized as a great place to learn the game.

What is Beginner Friendly Certification?
In order to receive the certification, courses across Canada and the United States completed applications, which were used to determine if the course welcomes new golfers. Courses were carefully evaluated on a number of criteria such as availability of clinics, loaner clubs, special playing times for beginners and other initiatives.
