The PGA of British Columbia, in partnership with the Vancouver Canucks, share a belief in the importance of young athletes learning motor skills through participation in various sports.
Canucks Junior Golf Week presented by TD Bank Group is open to children and youth aged 5-17 years at dozens of golf facilities throughout British Columbia. Participants will effectively learn the game of golf through certified PGA of BC-instructed, single-day camps in their respective communities.
The PGA of British Columbia was proud to announce the return of Canucks Junior Golf Week in 2022 after a two-year pause due to health and safety guidelines. The program took place from July 11-18 at dozens of communities throughout British Columbia. This year's program consisted of over 50 camps available at 30+ locations throughout British Columbia.

The skills developed through golf complement those of other sports, including hockey, while participating in golf also imparts important life skills such as honesty, sportsmanship, responsibility, integrity and respect. Participants will learn the benefits of staying active while exploring the game of golf, all the while meeting new friends and having fun. Canucks Junior Golf Week camps are practical for young golfers of all experience levels, including those who have previously never picked up a club. The initiative has introduced thousands of British Columbia youth to the sport for since launching in 2014.
The cost for a one-day camp during the 2022 Canucks Junior Golf Week was only $20 (+GST), which included equipment rental (if required), facility fees, a Vancouver Canucks-branded gift, and certified golf instruction. The length of each camp varied depending on the host facility, the number of attendees and the general age of the participants, however camps were estimated on average to have ran for approximately 60-90 minutes.
The PGA of British Columbia would like to thank exclusive presenting sponsor TD Bank Group and contributing partner Kal Tire for their sponsorship of Canucks Junior Golf Week in 2022, as well as the Vancouver Canucks for their ongoing support of this important initiative.
