Matt Barkway  

Matt grew up in the small town of Shellbrook, Saskatchewan where he first learned to golf.    He spent  his  junior career  mostly at the Shellbrook Golf Club, Cooke Municipal Golf Course in Prince Albert and the  Waskesiu Golf Course.   After high school he came to Lethbridge Community College to pursue a career in his sport of choice.

After a one year stint in Kananaskis, Matt came to Paradise Canyon where he started in the backshop and worked his way through the ranks to Associate Professional.  These years were highlighted by winning the 2000 Alberta P.G.A. playability test as well as competing in the Telus Open in Edmonton 4 times.Matt wrote his Class A exam in 2003 and became a full member of the C.P.G.A. at that time.

After 10 years Matt left Paradise and spent one year competing full time.This year consisted of a Winter Series on the Gateway Tour in Phoenix during 2008 followed by a trip to the Canadian Tour's Spring Q-School in Vancouver as well as following the Tour through Western Canada.After a year competing Matt re-joined Paradise Canyon as the Head Professional.

Matt has 20 years experience in the golf industry specializing in business, management, and teaching.Between competing and teaching Matt has a deep knowledge of the game of golf as well as how the business works.   While it is difficult to keep the game in competition shape in this position, Matt still enjoys the occasional competitive round.
