GOLF GIVES BACK
TORONTO – The Golf Gives Back program is designed to engage and encourage youth participation in the game of golf. The goal of the program is to make golf inexpensive, fun and to raise $500,000 towards helping the Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada that was affected from COVID-19.
In addition, the Golf Gives Back program is proud to offer 100 golf courses six sets of Cobra junior golf clubs in Ontario the opportunity to offer families to use to the Cobra junior golf clubs at no cost during their time at the golfing facility.
Locally, participating clubs include Shanty Bay Golf Club, Innisfil Creek and Tangle Creek.
The Golf Gives Back program, which launches Saturday, Aug. 15 in partnership with RBC, has created two unique initiatives to give back to the community:
1. Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada is the main beneficiary of the Golf Gives Back program from the fundraising efforts to the program.
2. Cobra junior golf program where our golf course partners across Ontario will be receiving 6 sets of junior golf clubs for families in those communities use during practice, during a round of golf, or at camps/lessons at those facilities. The program is being funded by asking people in the community to donate between $10 to $200, and be entered into our contest which includes the Grand Prize of a trip-for-2 to the Masters in 2021, prizes from Cobra Puma Golf, and other great partnering prizes. All of the proceeds for the program are being used to donate to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada and fund the Cobra junior golf initiative.
Be sure to check out our website to find where the local participating golf courses are located to bring your aspiring junior golfer to use the Cobra golf clubs, and support the COVID-19 relief fund at www.GolfGivesBack.ca.
“In these extraordinary times, kids and families need our support more than ever,” says Rachael MacKenzie-Neill, VP of Marketing & Development, Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada. “We are thrilled to be the recipient of this amazing initiative that gets kids active, makes sport accessible, and raises money that will help Boys and Girls Clubs continue to offer life-changing programs and services in communities across the country.”
Cobra Puma Golf is proud to be part of this great golf initiative, give back to the various communities across Ontario, and helping provide the 6-sets of junior Cobra golf clubs to each of TTG Media’s golf courses partners. We are hoping these Cobra golf clubs will provide all junior golfers within these communities a chance to enjoy their time at these golfing facilities, and spend more family time together outdoors having fun, getting exercise (especially with CV-19) and playing golf." — Dwayne Boecker, Head of Golf, Cobra Puma Golf
"It’s a true pleasure to be working on something so rewarding for both The Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada as well as all the kids in the communities where our golf courses are offering up these amazing sets of clubs. There’s so much fun to be had on a golf course for kids with both their friends and families. More than ever it’s nice to know you can get outside and have some laughs. It’s a true pleasure to make sure all these kids and parents know they can get outside and that they have quality clubs available to try a potential lifelong sport for free." — Joe Korman, Founder of TTG Media
