UXBRIDGE — Since 1994, Golf Ontario has been providing financial assistance to deserving student golfers throughout Ontario who are continuing their education at the post-secondary level. Through the support of Golf Ontario’s corporate partners and sponsors, the association has been able to award scholarships and awards to deserving students.
This year marks a tremendous occasion for Golf Ontario, as the association has now surpassed $500,000 in scholarship funds awarded since the program’s inception. In 2016, Golf Ontario has selected another 12 deserving student golfers who will receive funding to help with their post secondary studies.
