WRAPPING UP THE 2021 GOLF SEASON
At the start of the year Alberta Golf was busy planning our Spring Launch, Family Golf Festivals, Recreational Series, Junior Golf initiatives, Championship Tournaments and much more. In May, tighter COVID-19 restrictions for courses were put in place which lasted 3 weeks. While our Spring Launch was once again held virtually, we were able to run the rest of our season as planned. Once again the tireless efforts of the NAGA-AB Coalition in the spring working with the provincial government, golf courses were established as one of the safest places to be and tee times were full this summer across the province. The McLennan Ross Alberta Junior Tour saw another season of high registration, the Youth on Course program continued to offer affordable golf to juniors and we were able to run our Championship Schedule across the province all summer and unveil our new UpSwing recreational brand. Golfers were once again happy to get outside, see their friends, connect, enjoy, compete and have fun on the golf course. Please enjoy the following content outlining what Alberta Golf has been up to the past few months as the golf season ended and planning for 2022 commenced. Happy holidays!
