Golf Ontario Unveils New Strategic Plan

Golf Ontario has released its new 12-page strategic plan entitled, Toward A Nation Golf: Partner Focused, A Strategic Plan For Golf In Ontario.

From Golf Ontario:

The aim of this document is to outline the strategic direction for Golf Ontario, which acts as the Provincial Sport Organization for golf in Ontario, as recognized by the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport. This plan is the result of a coordinated effort by Golf Ontario Board members, staff, and other key stakeholders in the golf industry.

Mike Kelly, Executive Director of Golf Ontario, expressed his excitement for the direction the Strategic Plan provides for the organization.

“As the golf industry continues to evolve, Golf Ontario’s vision ‘Toward a Nation Golfing’ recognizes that we must continue to be the trusted custodian of the game and to continue to elevate our leadership to deliver on our mission of Shaping Lives through Golf in all of the communities we serve” said Kelly. “During the strategic planning process, a common theme emerged, and what became clear is that our partnership with golf clubs and facilities is vitally important to strengthen our relationship with golfers and impact on the golf community.”

Equity, diversity and inclusion in golf is also an important thread in this plan, and this includes a focus on engaging women and girls as well as a commitment to ensuring golf is available to all. Kelly added, “In 2019 we will be launching a new Provincial Championship for Golfers with a Disability which is a huge step in the right direction for an inclusive golf community in Ontario.”

“Partner Focused,” as Golf Ontario is calling the strategic plan, will anchor itself around the vision of “Toward a Nation Golfing,” recognizing the importance of growing the game of golf in Canada’s largest province. As well, the plan identifies the new mission of the organization which has been articulated as, “We shape lives by leading, creating, and promoting positive golf experiences.:

Kelly said, While this plan offers a roadmap for Golf Ontario for the next four years, it has to be recognized that its’ success relies heavily on partnership, commitment, and effort by all of our stakeholders to deliver on these key objectives.”
