My objective as Head Golf Professional is to provide the most memorable golf atmosphere and positive golf experience for our guests when they visit Sagebrush.
During my 30 plus years in the golf industry I have been fortunate to have served at some of Canada’s leading private golf Clubs. Throughout my career I have always been extremely passionate about teaching, coaching, and growing the game.
In my early days as an Assistant Professional I was fortunate to learn from and spend time with some of Canada's golfing legends, George Knudson, Al Balding, and Moe Norman.
It has been my great honour, priviledge, and good fortune to have been mentored by some of the very best PGA of Canada Golf Professionals, namely Mr. Michael Schurman, Mr. Phil Hardy, and Mr. Gerry Chatelain.
I have successfully completed several international Golf Instruction training programs conducted by the PGA of America.
As an alumni member of several VISION 54 Golf Programs, I am a firm believer in the teachings and philosophies of VISION 54's founders Pia Nielson and Lynn Marriott. Their approach to higher learning in golf and in life, have not only been inspirational to me, but also life affirming.
I know for myself and several of my fellow PGA of Canada sisters and brothers, golf is not just a game, it is a choice one makes with ones life.
