Rick Montgomery - Teaching Professional
Rick, grew up in Toronto, picked up his first golf club at the age of 12 and six years later became a PGA of Canada member at age 18; and some 42 years later he still has tremendous passion for continuing to learn and teach the great game of golf to students of all ages and abilities.
During his early years, he began working at a golf course, as a “back shop boy”. Also became a Junior member at that course, winning the junior Club Championship each year he was eligible. Rick was also medalist in the 1978 City of Toronto, High School Golf Championship.
During his PGA days, Rick played in many Canadian Tour Events, before focusing his skills on developing as a Golf Professional.
He worked at several golf courses during his time in Ontario, including Weston Golf & C.C. (site of Arnold Palmer’s first Professional Victory, the 1955 Canadian Open)
During this time period, Rick would also build, own and operate his own 4 bay, indoor golf school, allowing him to build upon his passion for teaching and teach golfers during the winter months.
Also exciting on Rick’s resume is that he caddied dozens of times for both Moe Norman and George Knudson, and also on the PGA Tour for Ray Stewart.
