 2018 Professional Development Points

PROfile

I was born in 1985 in Lethbridge, Alberta. I have been in Lethbridge my whole life. I have worked at the Picture Butte Golf Club when I was 13 years old to 18, then hired on at the paradise Canyon Golf Resort. I had 1 year at the Henderson Lake GC but shortly returned to Paradise Canyon in 2009. I have always had great interest in growing the game of golf with juniors and the business end of golf. I enjoy playing the game but that comes secondary to running a successful business. Since 2009 I invested myself in not only teaching young students but all ages and abilities. The greatest feeling I get out of teaching is watching a student understand the game better and ultimately have more fun. I currently enjoy and love my position as the Head Associate Professional at Paradise Canyon Golf Club and relish the opportunity to become a head Professional at a similar club.
