What is the most rewarding part about being a member of the PGA of BC?
I have belonged to most of the golf associations and I don't think there is a comparison of the brother/sisterhood of our group. It just feels like a family and home when we all get together. PGA members are so passionate for the sport of golf and its participants. I don't think you will find a stronger group!
Who has influenced your career the most, and how?
I don't think I have had just one to look up to. From Mike Parker in the beginning to the Munn Family in Kelowna, I have always had great role models. I have also had many like the McLaughlin family and others show that we can be more than just golf pros to help lead golf properties.
If you had to share one piece of advice with a new member of our Association, what would it be?
To seek mentors, especially outside your Club. No golf association has better members willing to share their experiences than the PGA. A second piece would be to try to ask for ways to help you stand out. Find an under-performing area of your operation and turn it around.
What is your favourite golf course in British Columbia, and why?
I will always be loyal to Victoria Golf Club - it is a unique property on the ocean and never plays the same.
