Golf Manitoba’s mission, as the governing body of golf in Manitoba and North West Ontario is to develop, promote, govern and service the game of golf for the benefit of all participants.
The Manitoba Golf Association was formed in 1915 with five clubs: St. Charles, Pine Ridge, Norwood, Winnipeg Hunt Club and Elmhurst. In 1922, the Manitoba Ladies' Golf Association was formed. Effective March 31, 2004, the Manitoba Golf Association and the Manitoba Ladies' Golf Association amalgamated to form Golf Manitoba.
Recognized by Sport Manitoba as the Provincial Sport Organization (PSO) for golf in the province, Golf Manitoba is responsible for promoting participation in and a passion for the game of golf in Manitoba and North West Ontario. Golf Manitoba is also involved in national golf affairs through its affiliation with Golf Canada.
Golf Manitoba conducts championships, programs and services to help shape the present and future of golf in Manitoba and North West Ontario. Assisting in the delivery of the National Golf in Schools & Future Links Programs, training our young athletes for the Manitoba Games, Western Canada Games and Canada Games and supporting the University of Manitoba Bison golf program are some example of player development in our province. Golf Manitoba also administers the Rules of Golf and handicapping and course rating.
