Director of Instruction Biography
Dustin Wilson is the Director of Instruction and Head Jr. Golf Coach with NWO Golf located at Whitewater Golf Club and the Sports Dome. Dustin has tremendous passion for the game and focus to excel as a coach and offer the highest level instruction and coaching available in Northwestern Ontario.
At the age of 19 he moved to the GTA from Thunder Bay to start his golf career. In that year he became a member of the PGA of Canada becoming one of the youngest Professionals not only in Ontario, but the Country. He is also a graduate of the Professional Golf Management Program at Georgian College.
Dustin has had the opportunity to work for some of the finest golf courses that Ontario and Canada has to offer in his 10 years plus as a member of the PGA. These experiences have led Dustin to his successes as a business person within the industry and coach for a world class golf academy `Core Golf Academy“. He has had the opportunity to work along side some of the top teaching professionals in the industry while gaining the knowledge to offer exceptional coaching programs.
His mentors among a few are all of the coaches at the Core Golf Academy in Orlando, Florida. They have all taught him what it takes to become successful and most importantly, help your students improve and enjoy the game. His highlight of his coaching career is working with Sean Foley and Dr. Craig Davies PGA tour coaches. He has learned from them over the years on how to coach individuals and not “one swing” also, implementing all aspects of the game when coaching. There are many different ways to swing a golf club but by understanding the “cause and effect” approach to body movement and what works best within that students abilities or physical limitations have led Dustin to excel as a coach.
In 2011 Dustin was named the PGA of Manitoba`s Junior Leader of the year award and in 2012 he was honored with the Northern Ontario`s Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC) Young Entrepreneur Grant. With this grant NWO Golf Development and fitting Centre was created to offer programs for all levels of golfers with focus on youth programs and bringing Northwestern Ontario`s first 3D Club and Ball Radar tracking system “FlightScope.”
