Alex Hughes

Alex started playing golf at the young age of 4.  As he grew, he played with his Grandpa and his Dad at the Picton Golf and Country Club coming 4th in their Junior Club Championship. During Alex`s youth he also played competitive badminton at the Harwood Badminton club in Ajax and for the Ajax High School team. Alex would go on to help teach badminton at that same club and assist in coaching the Ajax High School badminton team.

While still a junior golfer, Alex became a member at Royal Ashburn and learned of the Professional Golf Management program at Humber College. It was at this point Alex had decided he would like to become a CPGA Professional like his teacher Justin Hawe.  In 2016 Alex started at The Royal Ashburn Golf Club working his way from Back shop to Pro Shop.  Studying at Humber in the winter, and working at Royal Ashburn during golf season, Alex would learn all he could about the business of golf and has taken over management of the Ladies League and working the junior programs with Dave Castellan and Justin Hawe.

In the spring of 2019 Alex graduated from the PGM program at Humber making the Deans List and completed his goal of becoming a CPGA Professional with his Dad as his caddie coming second at the Fanshawe PAT. 

Alex knows that all golfers are different and will work with you and your swing to help you become the best that you can be!
