In 2001 with the creation of the Take A Kid To The Course Week, this arm of the NGCOA Canada is working to market golf to all demographics and striving to create more opportunities, both within NGCOA Canada initiatives and in cooperation with the National Allied Golf Associations (NAGA), for everyone in Canada to play this great game.
The Take a Kid to the Course Week is part of the NGCOA Canada.
The NGCOA Canada continues to reach new golfers through the Take A Kid To The Course Week. During the 2009 campaign, over 620 facilities participated allowing tens of thousands of golfers to take advantage of this FREE player development program.
