Program Information

To become an official Junior Skills Challenge site, a golf course or instructor must register online – providing access to program materials and an online account. Offered to golf courses across Canada at no cost, the objective of the program is to develop key golf skills, while serving as an important introduction to competition.

Following registration, golf courses can host a Junior Skills Challenge event at a date of their choosing. Once the event has been completed, players scores are entered to the National Leaderboard by the instructors. Participants can track their results to see how they measure up to other players in their age category across their own province or across Canada. Local Junior Skills Challenge events and Provincial Qualifier hosted between July 19, 2019 and August 3, 2021 will be eligible for the 2021 National Leaderboard.

On Tuesday, August 3, 2021 at 12:00pm ET, Golf Canada will select the top four (4) ranked players in each age and gender category and invite them to compete in the 2021 Junior Skills Challenge National Event on August 28 & 29 at TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley

***Please note that any Junior Skills Challenge facility event results entered into the National Leaderboard after the deadline (Tuesday, August 3, 2021 at 12pm ET)) will NOT be eligible for the 2021 National Leaderboard under ANY circumstances, including any type of technical difficulties. 

Please ensure to upload your facility event results in advance. If you have any difficulty inputting your event results, please contact Golf Canada immediately at for assistance.***


The top ranked players will be determined in each of the identified age classifications below:

  • Girls 8 and under 
  • Boys 8 and under 
  • Girls 9 to 11 
  • Boys 9 to 11 
  • Girls 12 to 14 
  • Boys 12 to 14 
  • Girls 15 to 18
  • Boys 15 to 18 

*the age classifications are based upon the participants' age as of August 29th, 2021

**All ties are calculated using an automatic formula built into the National Leaderboard. Ranking is determined by total score, then eliminating driving and then chipping.
