After a successful junior career, he found himself playing varsity golf at the University of Victoria. Realizing he had a passion for teaching the game he became a member of the PGA of Canada himself. In 2005 he gained employment at Gallagher’s Canyon Golf Club in Kelowna BC, one of the Okanagan’s finest courses. Honing his crafts as a teacher, player, and club professional Josh took on roles as both Golf Shop Manager and Director of Instruction. Josh’s experiences landed him the Head Golf Professional role at Miskanaw Golf Club in Fort McMurray for the 2013 season. He brought plenty of change to the golf course and was thrilled to have been there to make positive contributions to the operation. With his outgoing personality, optimistic attitude, Josh has been managing the GOLFTEC Prairies franchise since 2013.
