Rob Houlding: Teacher Extraordinaire


For the past twenty years Rob Houlding has followed his passion for helping others enjoy the game of golf.
As one of Canada’s pre-eminent golf coaches and teachers, Houlding was named the 2013 PGA of Canada George Knudson Teacher of the Year.
Houlding who runs the Rob Houlding Golf Academy, a state-of-the-art indoor facility in Surrey and a beautiful outdoor facility in Delta, recently sat down with Inside Golf’s Alfie Lau to talk about his approach to teaching, what being recognized means to him and how he unwinds away from the course and the Trackman.
