Introducing Our General Manager – David Perry
We are happy to introduce our new General Manager at Granite Springs Golf Club, David Perry. David has always been an avid golfer, as he grew up playing golf in the beautiful town of St. Andrews, New Brunswick. While residing in St. Andrews, David competed in many junior competitions, invitationals and qualified to attend a weeklong golf camp in Orlando, Florida with Team NB. After graduating from high school, David attended Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia and then Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, Nova Scotia as a business student before re-discovering his passion for golf.
David has a vast amount of experience working in the Canadian golf industry. He started his professional career in his hometown province – at the Algonquin Resort in St. Andrews, New Brunswick. Next, David worked at the Royal Montreal Golf Course – the oldest golf club in North America – from 1999 – 2006 as an Associate Professional. One of his responsibilities was overseeing the teaching academy where he facilitated golf clinics and individual golf lessons. During this time he was giving ~525 golf lessons during the golf season! Following this, David spent two years working at the Ottawa Hunt & Golf Club as Head Golf Professional before spending 9 years as the Director of Golf at Ashburn Golf Club in Halifax, Nova Scotia. David has worked with NCAA Division I athletes, Touring Professionals and was a former coach for the NSGA Golf Team.
David’s competitive golf career began at a young age, as he competed in, and won, a variety of junior invitationals and championships. While working at the Royal Montreal Golf Club, David participated in the Quebec Professional and Assistant’s Tour and was awarded the opportunity from his Order of Merit standing to play in a PGA Tour of Canada (MacKenzie Tour) event. David has also participated in numerous mini tour events in Lecanto, Florida at Black Diamond Ranch in the winter months.
As a PGA of Canada Golf Professional, David has an abundance of knowledge and skills to share with all the staff, members, and guests of Granite Springs Golf Club. We are excited to announce that for the remainder of the 2017 season, we will be sharing a weekly video that highlights valuable golfing tips and tricks for individuals of all ages and skill levels. Each video will feature David as the instructor.

David is excited to be part of Granite Springs Golf Club during a time of growth and improvement. He enjoys interacting with all the members and guests, and can regularly be seen giving lessons. David currently resides just outside of Halifax with his family, and in his spare time (when he’s not golfing!) he enjoys working on home repair projects, paddle boarding and running.
