Athlete Assistance for Nationals

The Sport Development Committee and Golf Saskatchewan believes in our athletes competing and excelling at the highest levels. In 2013, the Athlete Assistance Program was revamped to include only those athletes who compete at a National competitions recognized by Golf Canada and/or other golf bodies (USGA or R&A). 

The National Athlete Assistance may be available to players striving to test their abilities against world class competition.  Following the completion of our Provincial Championships, athletes who have qualified to attend nationals (as either team members and/or quota spots) may be eligible for National Athlete Assistance.  

  • The amount of subsidy is determined on an annual basis. 

ELIGIBILITY: In order to be considered for an Athlete Assistance Grant, the applicant must:

  • be a current member of Golf Saskatchewan, and 
  • have competed in Golf Saskatchewan’s most recent Provincial Championship(s), and
  • have competed in a recent National Championship in the calendar year, and
  • Golf SK's Sport Development Committee reserves the right to determine other areas of eligibility when required.

NOTES:

  1. Golf SK requires all participants competing at any National Championship to pay her/his own Entry Fee.
  2. Junior competitors are not eligible to recieve Athlete Assitance for a Junior Competition as their quota/team spots are funded through Golf SK's Sport Development/Championship expenditures.  
  3. A Junior who qualifies as an Amateur is eligible for Athlete Assistance. 
  4. An athlete who competes at more than 1 national championship may receive additional funding, unless some other circumstance makes this ineligible (Example – Junior Team Member - being on the team).
  5. A reasonable time following the last National Championship is required to properly process the cheques. 
  6. Reimbursement Timeline.  All cheques will be in the mail no later than October 15th, of the calendar year.

OTHER NOTICES:

  1. Golf SK will not assist an athlete who direct enters to a National/International competition.
  2. Golf SK will not assist an athlete who recieves an additional quota spot through a regional competition such as the Future Links Regional Championship.
  3. Golf SK will not assist any athlete who recieves an expemption spot from play at a previous years championship.  For Example, at the 2017 Golf Canada Men's Mid-Amateur, a top 10 finish gets you an exemption into next years (2018) field.  Golf SK will not assist you with funding for this event as it is outside of the fiscal year.
