Kids Play Golf: Solutions to promoting Junior Programs

The National Golf Course Owners Association of Canada has developed a strategy to draw more kids to area courses.

Kids Play Golf is exclusive to members of the association. The program is fully managed by each course.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Register at
  2. Enter your facility and junior program details when prompted
  3. The course’s listing is activated by NGCOA Canada
  4. Consumers find the listing through the ‘find a program’ page

If a course needs to update its program, the process involves visiting and then navigating to the Facility Login page where information can be edited and changes saved.

The NGCOA is getting the word out about Kids Play Golf initially by using social media channels and electronic newsletters.
