We are Golf

NAGA Postpones We are Golf Day in Canada due to COVID-19

NAGA is a national golf organization comprised of the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association, the PGA of Canada, the Canadian Society of Club Managers, the National Golf Course Owners Association of Canada, and Golf Canada, dedicated to improving all sectors of golf in Canada. Formed over a decade ago, NAGA's objective is to work cooperatively together as industry leaders ensuring a strong future for golf in Canada.

NAGA's focus thus far has been on providing the industry with economic data through the completion of an economic impact study, most recently completed in 2014, consumer information through a regular study showing why consumers make certain choices related to golf which was last completed in 2012 and support for industry lobbying efforts. The overriding objective of the NAGA is to provide a regular forum for the national associations to share information and input on matters affecting the industry.
