Welcome to my website!
As the Director of Instruction for the Performance Academy at Beacon Hall please allow me to wish you the absolute best for the 2021 golf season!
This past year has been a difficult and trying time, Covid 19 has been devastating for so many, however, the game of golf grew in leaps and bounds and thrived even under restrictions. My hope is that 2021 will see a slow but steady return to normal where we can once again shake heads, hug and share a cold drink after each round of golf we play.
The Performance Academy has become an integral part of Beacon Hall and is fulfilling its significant role in assisting the club to further differentiate and extend its image as one of the leading private golf facilities in Canada.
I’m very proud to see how much the member and guest “experience” has been enhanced with the array of services and programs we offer that address performance, game improvement and injury prevention.
We believe that there is a better golfer inside all of us and our success unlocking that potential is based upon science and several key factors which include, employing the latest technology and techniques for analysis, standardizing our methodology and approach, customized professional golf instruction, personalized “golf specific” fitness programs plus access to club fit technicians who ensure the optimal fit and matrix in golf gear.
Its important for you know that my overarching goal as the Director of Instruction has been and will always be to deliver “excellence” to golfers of all skill levels on a daily basis and do so in a warm, friendly and enjoyable atmosphere conducive to learning and most importantly…..having fun!
Opening day is always a bit of a moving target, subject to weather and turf conditions, plus we now have to factor in possible Covid restrictions, nevertheless we are planning to begin operations as of Friday April 30 th . Please check back closer to that date for updates, if we get an early Spring we will adjust accordingly.

2021 will be Bruce’s 49th year as a member of the PGA of Canada. In 2003, Bruce earnedIn 2003 he earned Master Professional status, the highest distinction possible in the association. He was named to Golf Digest’s best teacher list in 2013-2014 and in February of 2005, he was named PGA of Canada Teacher of The Year, and in the Fall of 2004, he was selected as the PGA of Ontario’s Teacher of the Year. Bruce’s teaching philosophy is simple and based upon the following principals:
- Every student must be assessed on an individual basis and be taught with an approach that takes into consideration age, gender, body type, physical and athletic ability, learning style and most importantly personal goals and lifestyle.
- Regardless of skill level, it’s imperative that each student accept and understand the fact that “game improvement” is a “process” and the “process” must be logical in sequence and not shortcut. An approach that is haphazard or made up of “band aids” with no regard for science will only result in faulty mechanics and thus frustration and poor results.
- The “game improvement equation” has many components, including, swing mechanics, the matrix and fit of one’s golf equipment, biomechanical function, golf specific fitness, mental makeup, nutrition, motivation, and desire, each of which, must be evaluated to achieve long term success.
- Students will only excel if they are given a personalized strategy or plan that clearly indicates how to close the gap between “where they are” and “where they have to be” to reach their goals.
