Jim brings to Windermere a lifelong experience in the golf industry. Having grown up on the 18th hole at South Muskoka in Bracebridge, Jim began playing the game at the age of 5. At the age of 12 he started working at the course collecting range balls every day during the summer months. In his teen years he spent his time working in the Pro Shop and playing as much golf as he could. Under the tutelage of Ron Webb, the long time Head Professional at South Muskoka, Jim decided at the age of 19, decided to gain his Professional status and from there his career took off. After 9 years at South Muskoka, working his way up the through the ranks, Jim moved to the Collingwood area in 1993, where he worked as an Associate Professional at The Mad River Golf Club for 7 years. Then in the year 2000, he received his first opportunity to become the Head Golf Professional at Cranberry Golf Resort. After 3 seasons, he was offered the Head Professional position at The Batteaux Creek Golf Club where he remained for 9 years. In the fall of 2012, Jim decided to move back to his roots and accepted the position of General Manager/Head Golf Professional at North Granite Ridge, where he worked for 2 seasons. In 2015 and 2016 seasons, Jim was the Teaching Professional at Muskoka Highlands, before accepting the position at Windermere Golf and Country Club in 2017.
Jim is a graduate of Georgian College where he received a Marketing/Advertising Diploma and was a member of the golf team. His playing career has been stellar as well. Winner of multiple events as both an amateur and Professional, Jim has a strong passion for playing and teaching the game of golf to all levels of golfer as a 27 year member of the PGA of Canada.
We are very excited to have Jim as a staff member here at Windermere. His extensive background, experience and friendliness make Jim a definite asset to our team.
