Shane GarbuttShane Garbutt (PGA of Canada Assistant Professional)
Shane played competitive golf as a child growing up until the age of 16.  After losing his father/coach at that young age,  Shane lost touch with the game they shared closely together. After years of working in the hospitality/food and beverage industry while attending post-secondary, Shane fell back in love with the great game we call golf. So much so, in fact, that he wanted to make it his life long career. He is currently taking an International Marketing degree at NAIT and is the Glendale resident social media director.  Shane couldn’t be more excited to be a part of The Glendale G&CC, he not only strives to give the best customer service but also to help each and every one of our Members on and off the course.
