Future Pros Program

 

The Golf Professionals of Manitoba Foundation Inc. gives financially disadvantaged kids the opportunity to become involved in all the aspects of the great game of golf through the Future Pros Program.

We provide participants the equipment, lessons and full junior membership to a club close to where they live.    Golf provides so much more than just a great game, it promotes a healthy lifestyle, teaches etiquette and respect and develops relationship that may not otherwise happen.

In 2017, and continuing in 2018, as players tee off at each tournament they asked to donate $5 to the Golf Professionals of Manitoba Foundation Inc. & the Future Pros Program.  In 2017 over $700 was raised.    Thank you to the members of the PGA of Canada I Manitoba Zone for your contribution!

The Foundation and Future Pros Program is committed to helping improve the lives of kids in our community through the game of golf.
