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 hosted between July 26, 2023 and July 24, 2024 will be eligible for the 2024 National Leaderboard.

NEW IN 2024!

For the 2024 season of the Junior Skills Challenge, the qualification structure of the program will be adjusted to help participants better align with the Long-Term Player Development pathway. Previously, all of the scores from participants at Local Events and Provincial Qualifiers qualified them for the National Final. Starting in 2024, there will be a second stage of qualifying after Local Events that will be hosted by the Provincial Associations. The top four (4) ranked players in each age and gender category in their respective province who participated at a Local Event will be invited to their Provincial Qualifier. From there, the top four (4) ranked players in each age and gender category among all the Provincial Qualifiers will be invited to the National Final. 

On July 24, 2024, at 12:00pm ET, each Provincial Association will select the top four (4) ranked players in each age and gender category and invite them to compete in their respective Provincial Qualifier (refer to Provincial Qualifiers page for schedule).

On August 29, 2024, at 12:00pm ET, Golf Canada will select the top four (4) ranked players in each age and gender category across all of the Provincial Qualifiers and invite them to compete in the Junior Skills Challenge National Final.

***Please note that any Junior Skills Challenge facility event results entered into the National Leaderboard after the deadline (July 24, 2024 at 12:00pm ET) will NOT be eligible for the 2024 National Leaderboard under ANY circumstances, including any type of technical difficulties. 

Please ensure to upload your 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 7 to 9 
  • Boys 7 to 9 
  • Girls 10 to 11 
  • Boys 10 to 11 
  • Girls 12 to 13 
  • Boys 12 to 13
  • Girls 14 to 15
  • Boys 14 to 15

*the age classifications are based upon the participants' age as of the date of the National Final.

**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.
