Student testimonials 

Andrew Reaume, alumnus

“I can honestly say the last two years I spent in the Golf and Club Management program were incredible. It truly is one of a kind. The program provided in-depth knowledge on all aspects of club management and gave me the tools I needed to be successful in this industry. All of our professors have a background working in the golf industry and they provided us with excellent guidance and truly made my experience at Fanshawe memorable. When someone asks what I went to school for, I’m proud to say, 'The Golf and Club Management program at Fanshawe.' "

Danielle Wilkinson, alumnus

“During my time at Fanshawe, I learned many different aspects of the golf industry to prepare me for my future. All the classes gave me the knowledge I needed to be successful in my life and career. Some of the classes I enjoyed and found most relevant included: Marketing, Golf Shop Operations, Law, Accounting, Guest Membership Sales, and Business. Our end of the year Gala event gave us a realistic view on what it’s like to run golf events, working as a team and executing a final product. The program allows you to take what you learn and shape your future - whether that is retail, teaching professional, turf management, food and beverage or club management. I am currently a Sales Associate at Golf Town and also work in the pro shop at the Brantford Golf and Country Club. Without this program and the opportunities it offered me I would not be where I am today. I can’t wait to see what my future brings and I will always carry the knowledge I learned at Fanshawe throughout my career.”

Gavin Mifflin, alumnus

“The Golf and Club Management program is second to none – offering a well-balanced curriculum encompassing every aspect of operations in the club environment.  We received instruction and guidance from some of the most successful members of the industry.  I would highly recommend this program to anyone wishing to pursue a career in Club Management.”

Michael Gould, alumnus

“What surprised me about this program is that you aren’t just a number to the professors.  In my past programs, I didn’t do as well because there were so many people in my class, we didn’t get much time to ask questions. In Fanshawe’s Golf and Club Management program, I was shocked that the professors remembered my name and provided a lot of help with my career aspirations.  This was a great motivator to do better in school and achieve good grades.”

(Re: Nick Campbell, Fanshawe Golf and Club Management alumnus)

“Nick joined the Bigwin Island Golf Services team in the spring of 2014. He quickly adapted to our unique operation, which allowed him to excel at his position. Nick has one of the most impressive work ethics I have ever witnessed in my five seasons at the Club. He was an integral part of our operation on a daily basis when dealing with our members, guests, and his coworkers. Nick will be taking on a larger role at the Club in 2015 and I am excited for his return to Bigwin Island. The education that Nick received from Fanshawe’s Golf and Club Management program has certainly shaped him into a fine young professional. Bigwin Island is extremely happy to have him on board!”
