Dane Mackenzie - PGA of Canada Professional

Dane Mackenzie, a Class A Golf Professional and member of the P.G.A. of Canada is the newest addition to Riverbend Golf Club. A newcomer to New Brunswick, Dane and his fiance Kristen, are bucking the trend and coming east to be closer to family. Dane has dedicated the last 9 years of his career as a Teaching Professional & Junior Development Coach at The Largest Golf Facility in Canada, Cardinal Golf Club in Newmarket, Ontario. As one of the few trained Junior Development Coaches in Canada, Dane worked with as many as 70 kids each day in the Summer Junior Golf Camps and worked with golfers varying in age from 4 to 90 years. Dane is recognized as a Golf Coach for the Ontario Visually Impaired Golf Association and prepared junior golfers for the Ontario Special Olympics. He is a Mr. Knickers & Friends certified golf instructor where he visited public schools in Ontario under the National Golf in Schools Program.

Initially graduating from Georgian College, Orillia Campus, with a Professional Golf Management degree, he then continued his education by attending some of the largest teaching summits hosted by the P.G.A of Canada. Dane brings a vast amount of teaching experience and knowledge to all of his students.

Dane is the great grandson of "Redvers Mackenzie", a top golf instructor in Canada for 35 years and a past President of the P.G.A of Canada. In a Stroke play match his great grandfather defeated Walter Hagen with an Albatross on the 18th hole. It is safe to say the gift of golf is in Dane's blood.

Dane's teaching style focuses on simplifying your golf swing and tailoring it to your physical capability. By utilizing the V1 swing analysis software he makes it possible to break down your swing in slow motion. Implementing his simplifying methodology, Dane guarantees he can make you enjoy the game of golf more than you ever have before.
