Our vision at British Columbia Golf is to introduce and grow the sport of golf by providing everyone in the province the opportunity to participate in a sport that promotes their physical, mental and emotional well-being.
Golf is one of the only sports that has values such as honesty and integrity built right into the game. It is important children are taught these lessons so they can discover how to use them in a variety of situations they face at home, school, during sports and play, and in everyday social interaction.

Future Links Driven By Acura
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.
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:
