What is Futures?

Futures aims to capture the imagination of young people of all skill levels and backgrounds to be active for life, meet new friends, develop valuable life skills and provide opportunities for families to learn and play together.


That's why it's more than a game, it's an investment in brighter futures.


To get started in golf, there are opportunities on offer all around the Canterbury region. You can just have a go at the driving range, learn new skills through coaching, or play with your friends on course. 


The Futures Canterbury North-East Hub and Selwyn Hub are part of the Futures community with young people and families coming together to share fun experiences on and off the golf course. Take a look at our events and coaching to find out what's happening at a hub near you. Come along and join in on the fun!



Futures has three progressive stages to inspire a lifelong love of the game. Each stage has offerings for coaching, playing formats, events and experiences to support young people to learn at their own pace and are appropriate for their stage of development.
