Our Staff of support coaches are drawn from a range of “expertise”, including:
- PGA of Canada Members
- Certified “Community Coaches”
- Varsity Athlete Assistants
- High School Volunteers
All of our programs are enhanced through the support of these key staff members, and we are proud to provide extensive training and development opportunities for these coaches throughout the year.
Carter Bennett is a dedicated golf professional, and emerging golf coach that belongs to the PGA of Canada. He graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University with a degree in Psychology, where his main focus was in sport psychology. This inspired him to work with golfers to improve their games through a holistic approach. Alongside his education, Carter has multiple certifications geared toward youth athletic development, including Titleist Performance Institute (TPI). This has allowed Carter to gain a deeper understanding of performance, learning, and development which molds his coaching philosophy.
Carter has several years of experience directing youth sport camps, and in more recent years, has been an assistant professional at high end golf facilities, including Weston Golf C.C. and the Toronto Golf Club. He has worked with Juniors of all levels while coaching with Golf Performance Coaches, Weston Golf Development Teams, and the York Regional Golf Team. Carter is also an experienced club fitter and builder. His expertise in this area can allow him to assess a player’s equipment, and find where adjustments or improvements can be made to optimize their performance.
Carter continues to pursue opportunities that will develop his knowledge and coaching philosophy, in hopes to help more people play better golf.
