Joel was born and raised in High River, Alberta. Living just two blocks from the local golf course he learned about the game of golf and grew a passion for it. He worked at the Highwood Golf C.C. for 5 seasons before joining the team at Cottonwood in 2014. Joel has played junior golf in the Foothills Interclub and the Maple Leaf Junior Tour since he was 14 and then went on to join the PGA of Alberta and Canada in 2014 as a Candidate for Membership and is currently working toward his Class A membership. Joel looks forward to learning as the seasons go and making the experience at The Wood as enjoyable for everybody as much as he enjoys the game of golf.
