In January 2010, RBC announced its expanded commitment to Canadian golf through a number of long-term initiatives to help further develop and nurture the next generation of golfers. That commitment consists of funding for Canada’s national amateur golf team (Team Canada), and contributing to Canada’s national amateur golf championships conducted by our partners at Golf Canada.
RBC will help fund Team Canada - Golf Canada’s high performance national amateur golf team. Through this program, athletes selected for the team will have access to advanced coaching, sport science expertise, training camps and world-class international competition.
In addition to the high performance team commitment, RBC is also extend its support to Canada's national amateur golf championships. RBC will enable talented Canadian players to compete in world-class competitions on home soil, but also offer golf enthusiasts and volunteers across the country the opportunity to get involved and be a part of this great sport.
Another key component of our support is to develop relationships with Canada's emerging and established touring professionals. These talented athletes will represent RBC as they compete each week on the world's stage. By supporting Canadian player development from the grassroots level all the way up to the PGA and LPGA Tours, RBC’s expanded commitment is critical to Canadian golfers realizing their competitive potential.
