Whether in a gym, a community centre or a park, Mobile Clinics presented by Acura is dedicated to making CN Future Links programming accessible any time, anywhere.
Equipped with the latest Acura MDX model, PGA of Canada teaching professionals conducted CN Future Links lessons to over 63,000 juniors in 2015. With a trunk full of golf equipment, teaching professionals travel all over Canada to deliver best-in-class programming, regardless of the setting.
For Golf Canada’s Chief Sport Officer, Jeff Thompson, mobile clinics are the bridge to reaching those who are limited in terms of access to a golf course.
“With mobile clinics, we are able to extend the outreach of CN Future Links and connect with Canadian youth where they are—schools, recreation centres, summer camps and more—all with the intent of igniting interest in the sport and letting them experience it,” he said. “We are thankful to both Acura and CN for their involvement in helping deliver lessons to those who may otherwise have limited access to a golf facility.”
The initiative is nation-wide, with all ten Provincial Associations leading the way with their own CN Future Links branded Acura MDX.
Since Acura jumped on board in 2014, over 120,000 juniors have received lessons through the program. The material taught through mobile clinics aligns with the latest Long-Term Player Development (LTPD) model, which provides research, statistic and insight into Canada’s player development pathway.
2016 Mobile Clinics will kick off when each province’s respective golf season gets underway.
