Rideau View Announces New Head Golf Professional
Roger Beale has been selected from a strong field of candidates to become Rideau View Golf Club’s Head Golf Professional.
Beale, an experienced professional at clubs in Ottawa, Florida and Barbados, most recently as the head professional at The Marshes Golf Club in Kanata, will assume his duties on January 4, 2022.
The opportunity to assume a leadership position at Rideau View completes a circle for Beale.
His first experience at Rideau View Golf Club was as a 16-year-old playing in a qualifying event for the Quebec Junior golf tournament.
“I was totally impressed because I saw striped fairways, like on the PGA Tour, right? I thought, ‘If this is what real golf is like, this is pretty cool.’ I’ve always enjoyed playing Rideau View ever since,” said Beale, an accomplished player who was a regular in the Rideau View Pro-Am and won the 2011 Canadian PGA Club Pro Championship. “I’m super excited. I’ve always held the club in such high regard.”
“Early in our selection process it became clear Roger had established himself as the leading candidate,” said Rideau View President, Bill Holzman. “His experience and personality will put him in a strong position to build on the traditions and culture we’re proud to have built here at Rideau View.
“Golf comes first at Rideau View and we think he’s a great fit who will continue to deliver a first-class golf experience for our members.”
Beale made the Dean’s List when he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Hospitality Administration from Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla., in 1994. He has a rich and varied experience in the golf industry including four years as the director of golf at the Royal Westmoreland Golf Club in St. James, Barbados, and four years as manager of the Apes Hill Club in St. James.
He has a great knowledge of the Ottawa golf market after having held positions at The Marshes, Camelot and Grey Hawk golf clubs.
We are excited to have Roger join our senior management team at Rideau View.
