The Women in Coaching Program is a joint initiative by Golf Canada and the PGA of Canada that strives to reach stronger gender balance among high-performance coaches.

Now in its third year, the program focuses on providing participants with in-depth career development that is focused on three main areas: individualized leaning plans, regular check-ins with a coach developer, virtual and in-person coaching education, and hands-on training experiences with coaches and top players.

The goal of the application process is to identify PGA of Canada coaches who would benefit from the program and also contribute meaningfully to the cohort's development as a group through sharing their experiences.

Applications are now open until Monday, December 5th at 8:00pm PST. Full details can be found at the link below. For additional information, please contact Emily Phoenix at [email protected].

What is the most rewarding part about being a member of the PGA of BC?
Without question the most rewarding part of being a PGA member is the people. Clients, members, colleagues, mentors, and peers. I find it awesome to be part of a community where you always have at least one in thing common with everybody each and everyday. The friends and connections I’ve made over the years are very precious to me.

Which significant accomplishments are you most proud of?
I’m not so sure I have a single significant accomplishment. The thing I take my greatest pride in is the day-to-day grind. We all go through it. I’ve always thought PGA professionals are like the silent unsung heroes of the golf industry. We’re all out there simply helping people enjoy the game and our facilities more each day. If I had to speak to one of the coolest things about my career. It would be having my name inscribed on a trophy along side Pat Fletcher & Gordie Howe.

If you had to share one piece of advice with a new member of our Association, what would it be?
Keep your golf came in shape and keep competing. If your game is good, you garner more respect from your members/clients and from within the industry. It can help open doors, present opportunities, and expand your connections. I also believe a good golf game helps to keep the passion & enjoyment for your job at a high level.

What is an interesting fact about yourself that doesn't involve golf?
Some already know this but my passion for skiing is equal to my passion for golf. It is my golf career in Canada which has provided the time & opportunity for me to develop this skiing passion. So even outside of golf, my career has influenced many of my great life experiences.
