The Delta School district has two different Golf Academies.  One program takes places in the North end through Seaquam Secondary and the other  is located in the south end of our school district through Delta Manor Education Centre.  Both programs are lead by Bryce Hamade, our Teacher Coordinator in conjunction with Chris Lutes-  PGA of Canada Coach. The Golf Academies take students of all skill levels and works  with them where they are at.  Every second day students are picked up at lunch by school transportation and driven to either The Delta Golf Course and Northview  or Beach Grove Golf Club where they learn to improve their golf game for two blocks right in the middle of the school day for full course credits!  Please note that the golf programs only have space for 15 students each.
