Travel Subsidy Policy
January 23rd, 2016
While it is the main priority of the Fund Development committee chaired by the Treasurer to enhance, develop and improve the provincial adult and junior championships, It is an objective of the Board to provide funds to assist players in representing the province at Atlantic and National competitions.
Upon the successful completion of the Provincial Championships, GNL will utilize the available surplus revenues generated from the competition and fund-raising activities to provide a travel subsidy for players attending the above noted competitions as follows:
GNL would provide a travel subsidy to three (3) player teams that will represent the province at the Atlantic Championships in both the junior and adult divisions. Furthermore, GNL will provide a travel subsidy to the three (3) player teams, both junior and adult in each division competing at the National Championships.
Also, players who finish in the top 50 percent of the field at the Atlantic Championships will receive an additional travel subsidy to attend the National Championships.
GNL will apply for additional travel subsidies through the Sport Division for Junior players competing at the Atlantic and National Championships and any subsidies provided will be issued to the eligible players.
In order to qualify for the travel subsidy, a player, must have competed at the event and is compliant with the code of conduct for the competition as outlined through Golf Canada.
