UXBRIDGE —Golf Ontario has been providing financial assistance to deserving student golfers throughout Ontario who are continuing their education at the post-secondary level since 1994. Through the support of Golf Ontario’s corporate partners and sponsors, such as Investors Group, the association has been able to award scholarships and awards to deserving students.
In 2016, Golf Ontario marked a special milestone as the association surpassed $500,000 in scholarship funds awarded since the program’s inception. One year later, Golf Ontario is proud to announce that $533,000 has now been awarded. In 2017, Golf Ontario has selected another 10 deserving student golfers who will receive funding to help with their post secondary studies.
