Welcome to the Kevin Haime Junior Golf Initiative application process
I am excited to be bringing the Kevin Haime Junior Golf Initiative into its tenth season. I owe most of who I am to the game of golf. I can't think of a better way to give back than by growing the game of golf and giving kids with enthusiasm for the game the same opportunity to pursue their passion that I had. Over the last eight years our initiative has already placed 504 kids onto high end private golf clubs by granting them annual memberships. Over the next several years our intention is to give hundreds more kids access to the area's top golf courses so they can develop as golfers and people.
Our Initiative is supported by so many wonderful partners and friends in the game of golf, I would be remiss if I didn't thank our golf course partners for allowing us to place juniors at their wonderful clubs. I'd also like to thank our title sponsor PING Canada for their trust and support since day one and the many sponsors, volunteers and participants who help us fundraise every year at the Kevin Haime Kids to the Course Classic at the beautiful Eagle Creek Golf Club.
What is the Kevin Haime Junior Golf Initiative?
The Kevin Haime Junior Golf Initiative (KHJGI) helps kids who have already embraced the game of golf to pursue their passion. Through an application process junior golfers will be given access to golf memberships at area golf clubs or receive other funding to help pursue their golf dreams.
Who is eligible to participate in the program?
Junior golfers between the ages of 9 and 17, as at January 1, are eligible for the KHJGI. Juniors must have some on- course experience in order to qualify for the program.
How are juniors selected for the program?
Juniors will be selected by a five person selection committee based on several criteria including need, circumstance, dedication to the game, attitude, eagerness to improve, and golf potential. We are looking for kids who want to play a minimum of 30-40 times a season. The KHJGI is not for kids who want to give golf a try or to play occasionally.
When will junior golfers be informed if they've been accepted to participate in the program?
Juniors who have been accepted into the program will be contacted by our Selection Committee ASAP and no later than June 1st each year. Selection of Juniors and memberships will be granted on a yearly basis.
We would like to thank our presenting partner:
