PROfile

I was born in 1983 in Sudbury, Ontario. I grew up in a small French town 15 minutes north on Sudbury called, Hanmer. I grew up going to a fully French school and High School. My parents Rick and Darlene LeBouthillier still live in Hanmer and my only sibling Rebecca Montgomerie lives in Ottawa, Ontario with her husband Kevin and daughter, Brooklyn. I was also married in 2014 to my amazing wife, Leah and we had our first child, Carter Denzel LeBouthillier on December 9th, 2016. Life has changed for the best! Now i know what life is really about. After High School I left Sudbury and moved to Orillia, Ontario where I took the PGM program at Georgian College. This was the first time I went to an English school. A week after graduating I jumped in my car and headed out to Calgary where I started working at Elbow Springs Golf Club for the next 6 years as an Assistant Golf Professional. This is where I started to teach a ton as the only PGA Professional for the first 2 years and this is where my tournament golf kicked off. After the 6th season it was time that I move on and find somewhere to teach me more about the golf "business" side of my career. I worked at Silver Springs for 5 years and learnt great things with a great team headed by Sheryle Rowland. I then moved on to Lynx Ridge to try a different side of the business and this is were I made teaching my number one priority. In late October of 2016 I was offered the Head Professional role and I gladly accepted. I am really looking forward to this new challenge ahead.
