Danny Long joined the team at Tsawwassen Springs in November of 2016 in the role of Director of Golf & PGA of Canada Head Professional. Turning Professional in 2004, Danny spent 11 years at Fairview Mountain Golf Club where he was Head Professional, before moving to Vancouver in 2016 joining the staff at Marine Drive as an Associate. His achievements include two professional wins, as well as being named Golf Professional of the Year for the Interior in 2015. In his eyes he doesn’t think there is one universal best way to swing the club, everyone is unique and has their limitations. With a focus on fundamentals and sound technique, he believes with practice every golfer can reach their full potential. The bottom line is simple: when golfers improve they get more enjoyment from the game, and more importantly they have more fun.
