Bridges Golf Academy Director of Instruction

Robin Henderson, "Class A" PGA of Canada Teaching Professional

CPGA Professional of the Year 1999 Manitoba Zone

CPGA Merchandizer of the Year 1999 Manitoba Zone

"Teaching students how to have fun is my top priority. The golf skills will follow"

Robin has been a PGA of Canada Professional since 1984. Throughout the various stages of his career, he has gained experience at the Steinbach Golf Club, The Links at Quarry Oaks and most recently at Glendale Golf & Country Club. This will be Robin's first year at Bridges as the Teaching Professional for the newly formed Bridges Golf Academy. Having attended golf clinics presented by the likes of Hank Haney, Jim Mclean, George Knudsen, David Leadbetter, Dave Stockton, and most recently Craig Statler and Lorena Ochoa, Robin brings a wealth of knowledge to his students and is able to communicate that knowledge in a natural manner while assisting them towards achieving their goals. 

"We all have different physical limitations, levels of coordination and levels of development. To try and teach all golfers one swing model does not work. Golfers need to understand the fundamentals and how to balance them with their individual abilities"

 Larry Robinson, Class "A" PGA of Canada Head Professional

C.P.G.A. Professional of the Year 2000 Manitoba Zone

Larry has 40 years of experience in studying and teaching the game of golf. He has taught many thousands of golfers in our province, from the brand new golfer to the seasoned veteran. Larry's influences stem from Ben Hogan's teachings and were further nurtured by the late George Knudson as well as Hank Haney (who Larry had the privilege of working with on a number of occasions way back in the 80's, before Hank became famous). These three professionals have had a very profound influence on his teaching.

Larry's friendly manner allows the student to relax and learn, as he says "I'm just a golfer too, I have the same fears and joys that come with the game as we all have".

For more information, or to book a lesson, please contact Larry at 735-3000 ext 2, or via email at bridgesgolfcourse@mymts.net.

Corey Brakksma 

Corey has been involved in golf since his first swing at the age of 3. Corey turned pro in 2008, the same year he graduated with honours from the Professional Golf Management program at Lethbridge College. Corey spent five years working in the PGA of BC before returning home to Manitoba when he joined the Bridges team in 2011.

Corey's friendly, positive attitude makes it easy for his students to feel comfortable and relaxed. His focus on the fundamentals of the golf swing, and his "back to basics" approach, allow his students to enjoy the game they love even more. Corey's goals for the future include getting more young people into golf, and making the game more enjoyable for golfers of all abilities.

For more information, or to book a lesson, please contact Corey at 735-3000 ext 1, or via email at proshop@bridgesgolfcourse.com.
