Junior Development​

The goal of the OVGA Junior Development Team is to recognize and support selected high performance junior players in our region towards their progression in competitive golf, including both individual and team events. Based on player development principles of Golf Canada and provincial partners, Golf Ontario and Golf Quebec, team members receive on-course practice sessions in preparation for their 2020 season, working towards regional, provincial, national, and international events.

In addition to helping grow participation in the game, the Junior Development Program also supports those identified on the path of high performance. Through OVGA and other recognized competitive events, the OVGA will identify a select group of eligible golfers to join the OVGA Junior Development Team.
