Bridges Golf Academy Director of Instruction

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

C.P.G.A. PGA Merchandizer of the Year 1999 Manitoba Zone

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

Led by Robin Henderson, Class A PGA of Canada Teaching Professional, the Bridges Golf Academy will be offering a full slate of  instruction options including the PGA & NGCOA endorsed GET READY GOLF program. 

Learning the game of golf should be fun, not frustrating. At Bridges Golf Academy, we make sure that your golf lessons are geared to your abilities, based on where you are now and what your short- and long-term goals are. Robin Henderson our Canadian PGA Teaching professional has been giving lessons for over 30 years. We invite you to tap into that expertise and be astounded at how fast you excel at the game. Who do we teach? Everyone. Regardless of how long you have been golfing, call us and we can help you progress.

Experience will determine your Bridges Golf Academy Lessons. Beginners, you've come to the right place. Right away, you will learn everything you need to know in order to start playing the course — including valuable lessons on golf etiquette, how to hold the club, how to stand, and how to hit the ball. You will be thrilled with how soon you can get you out on the course having a ball with your family and friends.

Intermediate golfers, who have been playing for a while, especially need to take lessons regularly. The only way to get better is to practice and the only way you will know exactly what and how to practice is by having your instructor assess your game. Do you ever feel like you're stuck shooting around 100? We can help you get down in the 80s and on the road to the 70s faster than you can shout, "Fore!"

Advanced players can also come to Bridges Golf Academy for lessons. Fundamentals always need to be reviewed with good players. Alignment, ball position, weight shift, visualization, full swing, shot making, short game and course management issues are all addressed.

Are you ready to improve your game? Bridges Golf Academy has a golf program to fit your needs. Choose from:

 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 clincs 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 simplistic manner while assisting them towards achieveing their goals. 

"We all have different physical limitations, levels of coordination and levels of devolpment. To try and teach all golfers one swing model does not work. Golfers need to understand the basic 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".

 PGA of Canada Associate Professional 

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.
