Cari Chow

PGA of Canada - Class A, Teaching Professional

From a young age, Cari was  involved in many sports and was playing competitive golf since the age of 11. She has competed in provincial and national competitions in Canada, (Canadian Women’s Amateur, Canadian Junior Amateur) as well as many events throughout the United States.

This experience helped her prepare for her Varsity career with the University of Victoria Vikes, and allowed her to play for 4 years on a scholarship, with the  last two years as captain. Cari competed in the NAIA National Championship and AII Conference Championship- both equally challenging. Many things came from playing in such intense competition, but what was most memorable were the friendships made and meeting talented golfers from around the world.

In the summer of 2016, Cari graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree. Cari also has 4 years of education training and will be looking to finish that degree in the future.

During the end of her last semester of university, Cari achieved her goal of becoming a PGA golf professional. She then joined  Ardmore Golf Course as an Academy Instructor. Less than a year later, she became the Assistant Professional at Ardmore Golf Course and had the opportunity to run both women and junior events & group lessons.

Towards the end of 2017, looking to continue her growth and challenge herself further she took on the role of  Assistant Golf Professional at Squamish Valley Golf Club. Since 2020, Cari has been the Head Teaching Professional at SVGC and now has her own business and is  contracted by SVGC & Squamish Golf Simulators!

Scott Wengi

604 898 9521 ext.4

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 😉)
