Teaching Experience - 11 years

Growing up in Fonthill, ON, Kevin started playing golf at the age of 14. Kevin was a member at Lookout Point Golf Club where he experienced the great game of golf. The short walk to the golf club would allow Kevin the privilege to golf or practice whenever he felt like. Along with golf, Kevin was passionate about many sports as a youngster; hockey, soccer, and recently basketball.

Kevin moved from Ontario to Calgary, transferring from Rocky Crest Golf Course; a renowned course in Muskoka, ON. He was there for 5 years working his way up from a golf services employee into the Pro Shop as an Assistant Professional. Kevin is extremely active in Earl Grey's Junior program as Co-ordinator and is excited about the upcoming season.
