Welcome to the GOLF FOR ALL Fund

Golf Ontario believes golf is a sport for everyone, no matter their abilities, age or background.  This new initiative aims to financially support Golf Ontario’s work in growing golf participation across the province, especially in underrepresented groups.


The Golf For All Fund was launched with the support of the 11:11 Foundation. We share a common belief that increasing access and introducing the game of golf to a wider audience can lead to enduring positive impacts on mental, physical, and social well-being.
