Head Professional, Golden Golf Club
Member Since: 2003
What is the most rewarding part about being a member of the PGA of BC?
The camaraderie amongst fellow Professionals. The industry can be challenging on a daily basis, but the support PGA of BC Members show each other allows us to get through those difficult moments.
If you had to share one piece of advice with a new member of our Association, what would it be?
Never stop educating yourself. Education can be done through reading (doesn’t have to just be golf or business books or articles), a phone call with an experienced Golf Professional or mentor, and educational courses just to name a few areas.
What is a common misconception that golfers make about what your job entails?
We play a lot of golf and have the winters off. Like most Golf Professionals, I struggle to find time to play nearly as much as I would like. The winters are a different kind of busy, basically it is about getting everything to press print as once the season starts there is not much time for planning.
What is an interesting fact about yourself that doesn't involve golf?
When I was younger, and trying to avoid the golf industry, I started my private pilot license. My first flight lesson was supposed to be Sept. 11th, 2001. Obviously, the flight that day was cancelled and kind of served as a sign to stop avoiding what I knew deep down I should be doing.
