New head instructional pro at Bear Mountain

Doug Hastie joins staff at Langford/Highlands courses

Doug Hastie has been named Bear Mountain Resort’s new director of golf instruction.

Hastie grew up playing at The National Golf Club of Canada – consistently ranked in the top-3 courses in Canada – where he was privileged to be mentored by George Knudsen and Ben Kern, both highly regarded players and teachers. After leaving The National, Doug taught with Mark Evershed, known for his progressive techniques and who was mentor to Sean Foley, who is now famous for his recent work with Tiger Woods.

Hastie plans on starting a program at Bear Mountain designed specifically for juniors and says he looks forward to helping golfers of all levels improve their game and have more fun on the course.
