We are pleased to announce that Allen McGee will be the new Director of Golf / Head Pro. Allen will be responsible for lessons, clinics, leagues and the Pro-shop.
Allen has an incredible golf background. His first introduction to the business side was at Kanata Golf Club as a Junior in the Backshop and the Proshop. At 19 years old, he received a Golf Scholarship to High Point University in North Carolina, where he received a Bachelors degree in Business Administration and minor in Marketing. While in school, Allen worked at Canadian Golf and Country Club every summer in various positions. Upon graduating, Allen went to Sydney, Australia for 8 months, at one of the busiest public golf course on the Gold Coast, East Lake Golf Club. It was an amazing learning opportunity for Allen where he learned a lot about golf operations and retail. He saw the pro-shop doubled as a retail golf store for Sydney.
In the past 15 years, Allen has won 8 Ottawa City and District Championships, 9 Ottawa Sun Scramble Championships, multiple Flagstick Championships, Club Championships, Mixed Tournaments and 6 times Ottawa Sports Award for Golfer of the Year. During his tournament career, Allen missed his Canadian PGA tour card by 2 shots and decided to turn back to Amateur in 2002. Allen has a strong passion for the game of golf, but also for teaching. He has provided lessons and clinics for numerous courses and tournaments.
