Golfers are teeing off in a nationwide auction in support of junior golf development programs.
Nanaimo-and Fairwinds golf clubs are participating in Golf Canada’s third annual online National Golf Auction with rounds of golf up for bid until June 30 at www.golfcanada.ca/auction.
Interested bidders need an eBay account in order to participate in the auction. In addition, Golf Canada members, who have activated their membership cards, will receive a $25 rebate on one successful auction bid per member.
Since 2010, the auction has raised more than $140,000 in program funding. This year, through the growing support of member clubs and along with the generosity of golfers from across the country, Golf Canada hopes to raise $220,000.
By supporting the auction, golfers can help raise funds for junior golf initiatives such as Golf in Schools presented by Callaway and CN Future Links, Canada’s national junior golf program conducted by Golf Canada, the PGA of Canada and the provincial golf associations.
Proceeds raised through auction also help fund Team Canada as well as provincial player development.
