MMA & CYGA Visit the Idywylde


November 4, 2013 - On Tuesday, October 29th fifteen students from Marymount Academy’s Gr. 11 Fitness Class visited the Idylwylde Golf and Country Club for a Day Event as part of the Canadian Youth Golf Alliance’s (CYGA) Search for Self I course. The students have been studying philosophy of life issues under the instruction Ryan Cooney, founder of the CYGA every three weeks. The program is a voluntary one that the students are offered and the feedback has been nothing but incredibly positive. Brandon Beeson, chairman and Northern Ontario Director of the CYGA says that “the partnership with Marymount Academy over the past couple of years has been wonderful. The students are eager, very cooperative, and appreciate the opportunities that are presented to them with the CYGA. The Canadian Youth Golf Alliance is a not-for-profit organization that focuses on assisting youth in “at-risk” environments with issues that they sometimes struggle with that surround every day discussions. Dan Bartolucci, teacher at Marymount Academy and the CYGA Board’s Education Chair agrees that “the opportunities presented to these youth through the programs offered by the CYGA are outstanding. Last year, the CYGA employed 28 youth from around the province and three of these youth were Marymount students”.

The Day Event at the Idylwylde offered seminars by the managers of a number of departments from greenskeeping and course management to event coordination, to every day bookings through the pro shop. For more information about the CYGA please visit:
