Ann Holmes - Sr. Professional

Ann started golf at the age of 5, but didn’t play competitively until she was a teenager in Redwater, Alberta. After playing junior golf and then completing her Physical Education degree at the University of Alberta, she moved to Vancouver to play for the University of British Columbia (UBC) Women’s Golf Team. While she was completing her Masters degree in Human Kinetics, Ann played in the National Women’s Amateur Championship, where she made the cut. In 1997, she joined the CPGA (Canadian Professional Golfers’ Association) as a professional and started her career in golf instruction, coaching, and playing.

Ann started coaching at UBC and quickly became the Head Coach for the Women’s Program. In May of 2000, the UBC Women’s Team placed 2nd at the NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) National Championships in Kentucky, and later that summer, Ann was named as the National Women’s Coach for the team that went to the World University Golf Championships in Northern Ireland. The next year, the UBC Women’s team won the NAIA National Golf Championships by 34 shots, and Ann was named as the NAIA Coach of the Year for 2001.

For the last 11 years since leaving Vancouver, Ann has been teaching Human Kinetics at the College of New Caledonia (CNC). She is a wife and mother of an active 6 year old son, and in her spare time she is a volunteer Board member with PacificSport Northern BC, a mental training consultant for all levels of athletes, a coach educator, and a volunteer fitness leader. She is currently working on her Doctorate in Education through Simon Fraser University, and will graduate in 2014.
