My name is Jason Wiwad and I was born, raised and lived the majority of my life in Edmonton. I am currently serving as the GM and Director of Golf at Cattail Crossing Golf and Winter Club in Sturgeon County. I am going into my 3rd season and we are so excited with the culture and expereince on both the Golf and F and B side that we have here at Cattail. We also have a thriving Junior program with over 300 junior golfers that come through our program each season. We are thankful for the opportunity to be apart of the greater Alberta PGA and we look forward contining to grow as a new course. 

I started working in the golf industry at the Royal Mayfair for 3 years in the back shop with an amazing group of people who have all went on to work in the golf industry. I spent  6 years at RedTail Landing Golf Club serving as an Assistant Professional.  I loved Redtail Landing and the people and staff that I have worked with during my time there.  I was extremely proud to be a part of  building the men’s and ladies club as well as a thriving junior golf academy that sees over 200 junior golfers attend summer golf camps each year.

 I also have started my own high performance and life coaching business called Big Picture Coaching. In the winters I have spent the last 6 seasons as an assistant coach and high performance mindset coach with the Bonnyville Pontiacs in the AJHL. I have a passion for teaching and coaching the game of golf.  To see my students build awareness in their personal lives and how that impacts their ability to grow in the game of golf is the greatest reward a instructor can have.
