A message from Mike:
I’m pleased to announce that I will be offering services as a golf instructor for the 2020 season. I’ve been with Eagle Crest Golf Course for 6 years and I couldn’t be happier to have the opportunity to work with and get to know another community in our golf world.
A little bit about me; My name is Mike Olsen. I began my journey with golf in 2006 when I started working a pro shop job and have been involved in the golf community for many years since. I attended Holland College in Prince Edward Island, where I graduated from the Professional Golf Management Program in 2011. I have worked extremely hard at the game to get myself to where I am now, loving every second of it. In my teaching experience I have worked with golfers of all skill levels and ability. My goal is to help anyone and everyone, from someone who wants to learn the game from scratch, to the experienced player that needs that little edge to take their game to the next level.
Regarding COVID, I intend to maintain the highest level of safety. I fully expect that I will be able to continue my lesson plans unaffected. A few minor changes will be in place, as I will be following all rules established by the health authority and the NSGA. These changes include:
• All lessons and clinics must be booked in advance.
• Golf balls will be handled only by the golfer.
• I will remain 8 feet apart while offering verbal and visual instruction, as well as any demonstrations.
• Student and instructor must sanitize hands before and after lesson.
• There will be no direct contact between student & instructor.
• If requested, a mask will be worn at all times by instructor.
• Private lessons, and group lessons must maintain a maximum ratio of 1 instructor to 4
students, as per the guidelines set out by the Province of Nova Scotia.
• On-course/playing lessons are permitted as long as physical distancing measures are
• Junior instruction is permitted, so long as the student: instructor ratio of 4:1 is maintained.
Everyone I’ve encountered so far has been incredible with keeping their distance, respecting others, and being mindful of everyone’s health and safety during this time. A big thank you to our amazing community for taking care of each other. #NOVASCOTIASTRONG
I look forward to spending time at Greenwood this season and getting to work with you all. I’m here to make the challenging parts of the game feel easy and most importantly, make sure you’re having fun doing it.”
