PGA of Canada Professional Staff

Kris Zubiak - Head Professional

I was born in Bonnyville, AB, though I spent most of my years in Fort Macleod AB. Lethbridge AB is where I enrolled in the golf professional management program at the Lethbridge College and transferred to the University of Lethbridge to finish a degree in business management. My passion for golf began early on in life. By the time I was 14 years old I was coaching Junior Golf programs at the Fort McLeod Golf Club and knew then that I would build my career in the golf industry. I love to grow the game of golf for all demographics. My passion for golf and business has remained strong during the past 14 years as a carded golf professional.
