“As a female beginner golfer, I was intimidated to learn the game. But Far immediately put me right at ease; she took away my self-imposed pressures, and reminded me, “no one was born playing golf. We all have to start somewhere”. She took the time to figure out my personal learning style and adapted our lessons to reflect that. She is so encouraging and patient, and did not rush through any part of the instruction. I felt like she was working with me as a true partner, and had my back! I can proudly say that after ten indoor lessons during the winter, I played my first tournament this summer, and have since played two more. I LOVE it. Far also helped me to understand etiquette, rules of play, and how to make a solid contribution to a tournament foursome, even as a beginner. Intimidation has been replaced with confidence and knowing that I am a solid part of each tournament team!”

“When Far speaks people listen! She imparts a wealth of knowledge, and gave our group a lot to think about. She is a vibrant, inspiring, engaging speaker. She was at ease, had a great sense of humour and certainly held our attention. Far interacts so well with the audience and there is a great connection with them. Following her remarks she patiently answered questions from the audience. You can tell she really cares about what she is doing. We had excellent feedback from our guests following Far’s speech. She did a phenomenal job.”

“What can I say? Far is AMAZING! She has been working with us for four years at our annual golf tournament. Far has such an engaging personality and an ability to make everyone feel important. Even though she is a golf “guru”, her teaching style is relaxed and she makes the game simple and accessible. She also has great insight into using golf as a relationship builder and networking tool, whether for business or fundraising. She has a real gift for getting people involved and is a great advocate for our cause. In fact, it is her genuine caring and focus to keep the cause at the heart of what she’s doing, that we appreciate the most.
