Meet the Instructors…

Steven MacPherson

CPGA Head Professional

Born in Glasgow, Scotland Steven comes from a golfing background. His father, grand-father and great grandfather were all Golf Professionals. During his time in the U.K. Steven played Professional Golf on various tours, including the televised Mastercard Tour as well as several Challenge Tour events, while teaching lessons at Felixstowe Ferry Golf Club.

After moving to Canada in 2000, he worked in an Associate Professional role at Seymour G&CC and then Bear Mountain Resort, where he later became the Head Professional. Prior to joining Storey Creek in the Spring of 2015 he was Assistant Professional at Qualicum Beach Memorial Golf Club.

His teaching philosophy is to keeps things simple. He tries to remember that no two golfers are alike or learn alike and believes in certain fundamentals. He doesn’t believe there is one way to swing, but does believe that there is one efficient way for every golfer to swing based on their strengths and range of motion.

Steven is a TPI Level 1 (Golf) & Level 2 (Junior) Certified Golf Professional and has gained valuable insight in to the functionality of the body and how this creates certain patterns of movement in the golf swing. Steven uses state of the art Flightscope Radar Technology alongside Slow Motion Video Analysis in his lessons.

Arthur Brown

CPGA Assistant Professional

Born in Edmonton, Alberta, but raised in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Arthur grew up in a golfing family. Both sets of his grandparents loved the game and traveled the globe playing it. They passed on the love of golf to Arthur. He began to play at the age of 7. Arthur moved to the Island in 2011 to attend the Professional Golf Management program at Camosun College. He started his path into the industry working the practice facility at Olympic View Golf Club in Victoria, British Columbia. Arthur turned professional in 2017 while working at Arbutus Ridge Golf Club. The next year he won the Arbutus Ridge Invitational, his first professional win, shooting 71-65.

Entering his third year as a certified instructor, Arthur has successfully worked with all levels of golfers. His process is all about adapting to the student and understanding their path to progression. Some students need the data from launch monitors and others need physical feelings or verbal direction. Arthur will find the best way to pass information to his students in a fun and exciting atmosphere. 

During the 2018 season, Arthur worked for Cobra/Puma as a tech representative for the Island and Lower Mainland. He fit golfers for custom specifications from Richmond Country Club all the way to Crown Isle Golf Resort. Arthur’s first-hand experience showed him how properly fit golf clubs can make a significant difference to a golfer. But he also experienced that sometimes the newest and greatest won’t beat your current club. Arthur will give you a fair and unbiased fitting experience to make sure your enjoyment of this game is only increased.
