Cari Chow

TEACHING PROFESSIONAL

carichowcpga@gmail.com

Member – PGA of Canada

From a young age, Cari has always been involved in many sports and has been playing competitive golf since the age of eleven.

Cari competed in provincial and national competitions in Canada as well as events throughout the United States. This would inevitably prepare her for a varsity career with the University of Victoria Vikes. She played on a scholarship with the Vikes for 4 years in the NAIA women’s division, and in the summer of 2016 graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Cari has 4 years of education training and hopes to finish her education degree in the future.

During the end of Cari’s last semester of university, she achieved her goal of becoming a PGA golf professional. In turn, she joined Ardmore Golf Course as an Academy Instructor. Less than a year later, Cari became the Assistant Professional at Ardmore Golf Course and had the opportunity to run both women and junior events, group lessons, fundraisers and also took on the role of events coordinator to run company events.

Cari enjoys working hard, and she looks forward to continuing the growth of Squamish Valley Golf Club and helping as many people as she can.

PGA of Canada Class A Head Professional

Scott fostered his fondness for golf while growing up in Sydney, Australia. Past careers in insurance, risk management/consulting, and massage therapy held nothing on the enjoyment he found when embarking on his employment in the golf industry.

Scott moved to Canada in 2007 and started working with Squamish Valley Golf Club in the summer of 2008. He worked firstly as an assistant in the Pro Shop and then turned professional in 2010. He worked as Assistant Professional until 2017 when he took over the Head Professional role. Six months later, in July 2017 he was appointed to the role of General Manager.

Scott holds a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Relations and a Masters Degree in Commerce, both from the University of NSW in Sydney, Australia.

The demands of the General Manager role, as well as those of having a young family, don’t enable Scott to offer as much instruction as he once did. But if requested, especially by Squamish Valley Golf Club members, he will happily  get out of the office for some range or ‘on course’ instruction time (in sunny weather only 😉)

Finally, if you are a member, a regular player at Squamish Valley Golf Club or a new Squamish resident interested in membership, feel free to book a time to play 9 holes with Scott. Scott holds a ‘General Manager’s Time’ at 2:30 pm every Wednesday. Join him for some time out on the course to discuss membership, club concerns or just to chase the white ball around!
