Event History


Help us Keep the Drive Alive to 25!

Our History

Golf for Kids started out in 1997 with a desire to raise money to help one little girl who needed a hand. The tournament raised over $14,000 that year and through the unrelenting commitment of organizers, sponsors, donors, golfers, partners, and volunteers, Golf for Kids has grown to become one of BC’s premier fundraising events each year.

The 2021 Golf for Kids Charity Classic marked our 23rd year raising money and awareness for BC kids in need and their families. And we’re not done yet!

“Thanks to Golf for Kids, Junior Golf Victoria has grown from 10 tournaments each spring for 30 junior golfers to multiple year-round programs for hundreds of children. Our beginner clinics and 20 event Tour emphasize fun and proper etiquette as being as important as competitive excellence. So, in addition to producing numerous provincial and national champions, Team Canada members and Canada and US University golf scholarship recipients, most importantly we have produced hundreds of good citizens.”
