Arthur Brown

PGA of Canada Teaching Professional And Certified Club Fitter

Born in Edmonton, Alberta, but raised in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Arthur was introduced to the game at the age of 7 through his grandparents love for it. He moved to the Island in 2011 to attend the Professional Golf Management program at Camosun College. His first start in the golf industry was working Outside Services at Olympic View in Victoria, before turning Professional in 2017 while working at Arbutus Ridge. The following year he won the Arbutus Ridge Invitational, his first professional win, shooting 71-65.

Entering his seventh year as a certified PGA of Canada 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 data from launch monitors while others need physical feelings or verbal direction. Arthur finds the best way to pass information to his students in a relaxing atmosphere. 

During the 2018 season, Arthur worked for Cobra/Puma as a tech rep covering Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland. This experience showed him how golf clubs correctly fit for a player can make a significant difference to their enjoyment and subsequent performance.
