Josh Walker - Head Professional

Golf runs in Josh’s family and his passion for the game was sparked at a young age. Josh enjoys all aspects of the game from playing to teaching, equipment fitting and learning all the ins and outs of the golf industry.

Originating from Regina, Saskatchewan, Josh first came to Lethbridge in 1999 to attend the Professional Golf Management (PGM) Program at the Lethbridge College. After graduating from the PGM Program in 2001, he was ready to turn his passion into a lifelong career.

Prior to coming to Evergreen Golf Centre, he spent 4 seasons working at the Kananaskis Country Golf Course. Wanting to learn more about semi-private and private golf club dynamics, he moved back to Lethbridge in the fall of 2002 and has lived here since. In 2003 Josh joined the team at the Magrath Golf Club through to the end of 2015. Along the way, he gained tremendous knowledge and experience in managing his own business and applied that knowledge and experience into his next venture as the Owner/Operator of J. Walker Golf. In 2016, he opened J. Walker Golf as a stand-alone independent golf shop, specializing in custom fit equipment and the latest in Men's and Ladies' golf apparel and accessories. With a focus on customer service, in two short years, the team at J. Walker Golf has fit over 150 customers into custom fit equipment best suited for their individual games.

He is extremely excited to be joining the fabulous team at Evergreen Golf Centre as the new Head Professional. He is looking forward to meeting and getting to know all the great customers of Evergreen Golf Centre and to helping you get the most out of your game.
