Sport Fund Recipient Spotlight

Windsor Disc Golf

After a series of meetings with community members, it was evident that a disc golf course was in high demand in the town of Windsor. Since establishing a new club, the Maritime Disc Golf Association has witnessed steady growth and continues to draw attention throughout the valley. Today, the club boasts 500 casual members and 100 official members.

With the assistance of Sport Fund, Windsor Disc Golf was able to purchase new equipment, establish a more efficient programming model, and increase their official membership by seven percent.  “Sport Fund was a major contributor in helping to get a brand new public disc golf course open in Windsor.  That course has had a ton of positive feedback and many new players.  This has been one of our most successful courses (and projects) in our three-year history” said Maritime Disc Golf Association President, Ben Smith. There are currently seven disc golf courses across the province, click here for a complete list of locations.

Sport Fund Success Story

Lunenburg Rowing Club

Five years ago, The Lunenburg Yacht Club introduced rowing as a means to grow their participation. Today, the club has nearly 40 members and a new program was recently launched offering sailing and rowing under the same membership.

“The application process is straight-forward and the funds we have received have been essential to building our program” said Lunenburg Rowing Club founder, Karen Kinley. Kinley says there’s a direct coloration between the funding and their growing participation. “Our membership has grown mostly because of the increased and improved equipment we can offer to our rowers.” Sport Fund provided the organization with the financial support required to purchase and maintain equipment and build outdoor boat storage.
