West Shore golf pro switching clubs

Hamstra joining the academy program at Olympic View

Award-winning PGA of British Columbia golf professional Lori Hamstra is packing up her golf bag and heading across the West Shore.

After spending five seasons as lead instructor at the Bear Mountain Golf Academy and building up the women’s program through instruction and guiding the popular ladies night play, Hamstra is returning to Olympic View to take on an instructional role at the GBC Golf Academy.

“Our Golf Academy just became a lot stronger with the addition of Lori Hamstra,” says Olympic View’s director of instruction, Jeff Palmer. “Our goal is to offer the best golf coaching for golfers of all genders and age groups, and having Lori here adds a greatly improved dimension to our coaching programs.”

A member of the PGA of B.C. since 1999, Hamstra won the organization’s Teacher of the Year Award in 2006.
