Jun 12, 2012
(News Release) VICTORIA — Two Victoria-area golf courses are participating in Golf Canada’s third annual National Golf Auction in support of golf development programs across Canada.
The following clubs are involved this year’s online auction:
Local golf enthusiasts can bid on an opportunity to play a round of golf at these courses, along with hundreds of others across the country. Bidding is open from June 1 – June 30 2012 at golfcanada.ca/auction.
Interested bidders need an eBay account in order to participate in the National Golf Auction. In addition, Golf Canada members, who have activated their membership cards, will receive a $25.00 rebate on one successful auction bid per member.
Since 2010, the National Golf Auction has raised over $140,000 in program funding for grow the game golf initiatives. This year, through the growing support of member clubs and along with the generosity of golfers from across Canada, Golf Canada is hoping to raise this amount to $220,000.
By supporting the National Golf Auction, Canadian golfers can help to 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 the National Golf Auction also help to fund Team Canada as well as provincial player development, with 25% of the proceeds benefiting the province of the course bid upon which the winning bid originated.
Golf Canada is also reaching out to member clubs across the country to donate a round of golf for either a threesome (if the group needs to be accompanied by a member) or foursome with two carts to be played at their facility during the 2012 season.
