Philip Jonas

  • PGA of Canada Class “A” Golf Professional
  • PGA of BC Teacher of the Year 2012
  • Member of the Senior European Tour 2014

My hope is that all my students can play the type of golf that will encourage them to play golf for their whole life. I always look forward to teaching juniors, I was brought up in a very good junior program in South Africa and I plan on using this experience to help juniors realize their potential. If a golf scholarship is the goal I can help realize that through my many contacts with University Golf Coaches.  

I can be reached at the Philip Jonas Golf Academy at the Hazelmere Golf Course in South Surrey: 604-787-0145.
