Welcome James Perkinson to the professional staff at Marine Drive Golf Club.
James grew up on either a rugby field or on a golf course in Wellington, New Zealand. He started playing and working at Shandon Golf Course and went on to represent Wellington at Matches and Tournaments around New Zealand. He then decided to join the Zew Zealand PGA and in his first year he came 2nd in the NZPGA Trainee Championships and finished 3rd on NZ's Order of Merit.
This gave him the opportunity to represent the NZPGA in Australia which lead to him getting a job in Sidney. He completed his PGA Traineeship at Elanora Country Club in Sydney where he continued to learn about the golf industry and continued to work on his game while also coaching members. In 2016 he decided to play full time after he got his Mena Tour Card which is a tour based out of the UAE. For the next year he traveled playing in tournaments all over the world. He has now decided to settle in Canada to continue with his studies completing a Bachelor in Business Management and get back into coaching and working at a Marine Drive Golf Club.
