KGCC Names 5th Head Professional

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to announce the appointment of Alec Hubert as the club’s fifth Head Professional. Alec joined our team in July of 2016 and has immediately established himself as a leader in the pro shop and a very deserving recipient of this title.

Alec has been a member of the PGA of Canada since 2008 when he decided to pursue a career in golf and was given a start at the prestigious Royal Ottawa Golf Club. It was here that Alec was mentored by some of the National Capital Region’s best CPGA professionals. At The Royal Ottawa GC he was able to learn all of the aspects of operating a pro shop and was able to hone his ability as an instructor. In 2011 he was awarded the Assistant Professional of the Year within the Ottawa Zone and in 2013 Alec earned Class A status within the PGA of Canada. In 2014 Alec joined a team of instructors at the Fairmont Hot Springs Resort and continued to hone his craft as a leader, instructor and player. In both the 2014/15 seasons Alec won the Kootenay Pro Series Order of Merit and Tour Championships.

Alec lives for the game of golf and given the exciting additions to our pro shop for 2017, will be able to help members and guests get the most out of their golf game.
