The PGA of BC Tournament of Champions (TOC) presented by PING Canada takes place on Monday with 35 teams competing at Nanaimo Golf Club.

The 18-hole, best-ball competition, which features PGA of BC Club Professionals (Head, Executive or Head Teaching Professional) partnering with a club champion or other designated amateur from their facility, was held at Mayfair Lakes G&CC in 2021 where Point Grey G&CC Head Professional, Dave Zibrik and amateur, Jeff Dagg claimed victory in a three-way playoff.

Nanaimo Golf Club will be welcoming the TOC for the first time and hosting its first Association championship in 25 years, last holding the PGA of BC Championship in 1997. The A.V. Macan designed course features tall evergreens, majestic willow and maple trees which prove to be a tight test from the tees.

Class "A" Professional, The Vancouver Golf Club

Member Since: 2014

Why did you become a PGA of Canada Professional?
The opportunity to combine my passion for sports and business and the opportunity to pass on my knowledge and passion for the game to others.

What is the most rewarding part about being a member of the PGA of BC?
The most rewarding part for me is the relationships I have developed with my colleagues and members/guests of facilities. If I wasn't a member of the PGA of BC I would not have the opportunity to meet so many influential people.

If you had to share one piece of advice with a new member of our Association, what would it be?
Everyone is willing to share their career and information with you. Don't be afraid to reach out to people who are in a position you want to be in. Get out to industry events, play in events and network. Here in BC we do such a good job of bringing everyone together with our education series and tournaments. Also, seek out places you want to work in advance; my job in Whistler and New Zealand came through me picking a destination and seeking out the job myself instead of waiting for a job posting.

What is a common misconception that golfers make about what your job entails?
There is so much that goes into running a golf facility that we all do behind the scenes to ensure all of our members and guests have a great golf experience. Whether its organizing a tournament, running a camp or clinic, hiring the right staff, creating budgets, there is so much we do so that everyday golfers can come and enjoy their day away from what they do.
