Assistant Golf Professional - Fairwinds Golf Club
Head Professional, St. Eugene Golf Resort & Casino

PGA of Canada member since: 2000

At which golf facility did you first begin working within the industry, and who was the PGA Professional? 
My very first job in golf was back shop at the Fernie Golf and Country Club under Mike Will. I was encouraged to join the PGA of Canada by Greg Pidlaski at the Kelowna Golf and Country Club, making that my first assistant professional position.

Which significant accomplishments are you most proud of?
Receiving the PGA of BC Dick Munn Golf Professional of the Year Award in 2018 from my peers is one of my proudest accomplishments. I am also proud to be starting my second term on the PGA of BC Board this season and was honoured to be selected as a member of the PGA of Canada Diversity & Inclusion Task Force in 2020.

What is a common misconception that golfers make about what your job entails? 
I think the greatest misconception is that the "off-season" provides down-time. It is not always understood how much planning, programming and preparation is done during those months to be able to focus on our member and guest services throughout the season.

What is your favourite golf course in British Columbia, and why? 
Fernie Golf and Country Club still feels like "home" whenever I return and nothing beats that feeling!

From 1992 to 2000, the PGAs of BC and Alberta annually contested the Titleist Cup, a series of Ryder Cup-style matches between member Professionals from each zone.

The provinces alternated as hosts each year, sending 14-player teams to compete over two days of four-ball, foursomes and singles matches.

As part of the administration team's efforts to preserve the history of the PGA of BC, information about the Titleist Cup has now been added to the Championship History Hub alongside other retired tournaments such as the Pro-Executive and Players' Championships. Our thanks to the PGA of Alberta for their assistance with this project.
