Meet the Kokanee Springs Team: Paul Wilks, CPGA Professional

Paul Wilks, CPGA
Assistant Golf Professional

All of us at KSR are extremely pleased to let you know that Assistant Golf Professional, Paul Wilks has returned for his third season at Kokanee Springs. Paul is tremendously excited to be back for another great year, and looks forward to welcoming and serving you all during our 50th Anniversary Season.


Paul was born and raised in Woodstock Ontario, where at a very young age, he developed a lifelong connection with the game of golf. "It was a place of peace and comfort for me", Paul says. "After purchasing a golf membership with a little help from his parents, he would spend most of his summer days consumed by his passion for, and committment to the game." 

As a graduate of Fanshawe College's Golf and Club Management program, Paul has worked tirelessly to expand his knowledge of the game and the golf business, proving to be a invaluable asset to the KSR team. His move west to British Columbia a few years ago came as an easy transition, as he quickly fell in love with the colossal mountain ranges and incredible landscapes of the Kootenay region. "Thank you Kokanee Springs - it is a privilege to work at such an outstanding golf course. I could not be happier. The beauty, aesthetics of the course and resort, along with the rich history Kokanee Springs has to offer, makes this a very special place to be."

Having qualified with the Canadian Professional Golfer's Association, Paul's passion has turned in to teaching the game, to any level player. His hope is to show you HIS passion through the improvements of YOUR game.
