Born in Winnipeg, Nick moved to Calgary at the age of 5 where he grew up an athletic child who participated in many different sports. Growing up Nick never really played golf more than a handful of times each summer and never really had a passion for the sport as a junior. It wasn’t until after he graduated high school and started working at golf courses in the summer that he developed a love for the game. Throughout university he spent what seemed like every day of the summer at the golf course either playing, practicing, or working. Taking a sport and recreation degree at Mount Royal University, Nick felt that working in the golf industry was a natural fit as it combined his new passion with a future career.

Nick started his journey in the golf industry in 2015 at Heritage Pointe where he worked for 5 years in the back shop. In 2019 he joined Willow Park Golf & Country Club working in the Pro Shop where he has spent the past 2 seasons. After never playing competitive golf growing up, he decided to attempt his playing ability test to become a Golf Professional. After a few unsuccessful attempts, Nick was able to meet the playing requirements in September of 2020. In 2021 he will continue with his journey in the golf industry as he becomes the Assistant Professional at Willow Park.
