Meet Our Coaches
Director of Operations / CPGA Instructor
'Everyone learns differently and it is our job as professionals to find the best way to facilitate the most effective learning environment for all our students. My objective as your instructor is to make sure you develop a true understanding of your golf swing using a cause-and-effect approach. When you can successfully diagnose your good and bad shots, you will be able to practice efficiently on your own and this will help improve your game.'
'As a PGA of Canada certified instructor, I have benefited from learning to coach through the best education system in the world. Over the past 15 years I have also had the benefit of working with some of the best instructors in the game. My teaching style is to listen to the student, and pay close attention to the root causes of any issues in the swing. I keep things very simple in my approach. For each student, learning a new skill takes practice and patience. I believe this applies to every golfer.'
'As a PGA of Canada member since 2008, I am committed to helping you achieve a greater enjoyment of the game. Whether you are just being introduced to the game or training for high level tournament play, I look to help help you realize your golfing goals. I believe that strong emphasis should be placed on the importance of pre-swing fundamentals. The proper grip, aim, stance, balance, posture, alignment and ball position is the foundation and basis of any good golf swing.'
'To ensure that you have the resources available to train and perform at your highest level, I am committed to providing you with the most up to date skills training, knowledge and tools available in the industry - from lessons, custom club fittings, physical and mental training, I are here to help you reach your maximum potential.'
'My goal as your professional is to do my very best to give you the knowledge and understanding needed in order to be successful in the game of golf. Understanding aspects like proper ball flight analyzes, being mentally, physically, and emotionally balanced allows a chance to play to our full potential. I intend to use knowledge gathered while being surrounded by some of the best in the business to assist you in this process while keeping the experience fun.'
