Sport Fund Recipient Spotlight: Abercrombie Country Club

Abercrombie Country Club’s picturesque course provides all one needs to boost their golf game, including opportunity for a group underrepresented in golf.

In 2019 they launched the New Ladies Centennial Social League to break barriers and expand the female golf game in Nova Scotia. Cost is a participation obstacle, and with the help of Sport Fund the New Ladies Centennial Social League allows women to develop skills on the course at a reduced rate with golf clubs provided.

“Sport Fund was the major reason this program got off the ground.,” said Jonathan Garron, director of golf at Abercrombie Country Club. “Unfortunately, we did not have the funding to purchase all the equipment needed for participants. The funding received through Sport Fund allowed us to purchase the necessary equipment needed for the program.”

Garron is optimistic that the new program will continue to spark the interest of new participants who might not have thought about playing before. “Programs like these are always important when you can attract new groups to your sport that may be missing, in turn hopefully growing the game you love”. In just two seasons, the New Ladies Centennial Social League has already grown the female golf game by successfully welcoming 57 new women to their membership.
