"Your funny really funny' is one of the praises bestowed upon David Feherty, the new Ambassador for Provo Golf Club.
The man of many talents, who manages to juggle hosting 22 episodes per season of "Feherty", about 20 tournaments a year for CBS and Golf Channel and multiple speaking engagements is to be a regular visitor to Provo Golf Club and The Turks and Caicos Islands.
Born 13 August 1958 in Bangor, County Down, Northern Ireland, David became a naturalized U.S. citizen five years ago and now lives in Dallas with his wife Anita and their five children. Anita fell in love with the TCI after visiting in 2010 feeling that this was somewhere the family could relax together. His first visit left David impressed with the quality of Provo Golf Club, the quick pace of play, the welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff.
David turned professional in 1976 and spent nearly 20 years on the European Tour, winning five times and twice finishing in the top 10 in the Order of Merit. 1994/5 saw him playing the U.S. PGA Tour, with his best result, second place at the 1994 New England Classic. Feherty represented Ireland in international competition and captained the victorious 1990 Alfred Dunhill Cup team. He was also a member of the 1991 European Ryder Cup team that lost in the famous match at the Ocean Course in Kiawah Island, S.C. When he retired from the tour in 1997, he joined CBS Sports as a course reporter and golf analyst and gained acclaim for his acerbic wit.
David is also co-founder of Troops First Foundation, and an extremely active fundraiser for the cause. Over the course of a year Feherty hosts six different events to raise awareness for Wounded Warriors and their families – the men and women he calls "the true heroes of this great nation".
In 2011, Feherty began hosting his own one-hour talk-show "Feherty" on the Golf Channel. Alongside the madcap humor celebrities from past presidents to pro-golfers have been put at ease and opened up to him, showcasing what a great interviewer Feherty is. He is now one of the most popular golf commentators on TV with over 434,000 followers on Twitter. Early 2014, Feherty decided to take his "cutting edge style" on the road and travel across North America for his new live show Feherty Off Tour – Wandering Around On His Own – a show full of great stories from behind the scenes that you don't want to miss!

Dave Douglas : Canadian PGA Member since 1986 
Dave picture 3
After being tricked into the golf business in 1985 by the short hours, huge pay, and lavish lifestyle, Dave Douglas enjoyed the following five years as Peter Boyce’s Assistant Golf Professional (PGA Status) at the Sarnia Golf Club, in Sarnia Ontario, Canada. 1991 saw a change in venue with Dave’s first Head Pro Position as he enjoyed five years at Greenhills Country Club in London, Ontario. While personally writing the paychecks for a staff of 18 employees each week Dave also saw four of his Assistant Golf Professionals come through the ranks to ultimately become Head Professionals themselves.
During that stint at Greenhills Dave and his wife Denise Douglas ( who was intricately involved in the business as well) would come to Providenciales in the winters to help out Peter Boyce who by 1992 had become Provo Golf Club’s first Director of Golf. In those three winters from 1993 to 1995 he managed to "not quite” upset enough members (or management) to this time trick the owner’s representatives into hiring him and Denise upon Peter Boyce’s Departure back to the real world. Since 1996 Dave has thoroughly enjoyed at least 3 of the 19 years as Head Bag Boy, while toiling daily in Golf’s Wonderful World of Adult Day Care, "Island Style”.

Sean Wilson: Canadian PGA Member since 1994

Sean began his golf adventure at a young age working in the backshop at Greenhills Country Club in London, Ontario working under the tutelage of Dave Douglas and worked his way up to Associate Professional obtaining his Class "A” status in the Canadian PGA in 1999. It was at this time he obtained his first Head Professional position at the Norfolk Golf & Country Club in Simcoe, Ontario. After 3 years he left to become the Head Professional at Erie Shores Golf & Country Club in Leamington, Ontario.
During the winter months in these early years in the golf business Sean would visit the Provo Golf Club and assist during the winter months, it was these tropical winters that sparked his interest in travel and working in exotic locations. Sean’s next move was unconventional as he travelled the world teaching golf lessons on various cruise ships while working for Elite Golf Cruises. After visiting most parts of the world on the cruise ships Sean wanted to get back to working in a Club Environment and returned to the Provo Golf Club on a full time basis. It was during this stint that he was recruited for the Director of Golf position at The Links at Safehaven in the Cayman Islands. Upon the sale of The Links at Safehaven to new owners and being re-branded The North Sound Club Sean remained a few months re-opening the course for the new owners until deciding to return "home” to the Provo Golf Club where he has remained for the past 7 years.

Tim Mack: Course Superintendent 
Tim 200 x 300
Tim grew up playing and later working at Echo Farms C. C. in Wilmington, NC.  As he got older, it became apparent that he was not going to make a living playing golf, so his attention turned towards course maintenance. 
Tim graduated from North Carolina State in 1996, and then continued to learn his trade as the Assistant Superintendent at Sedgefield C. C. and Starmount Forest C. C. in Greensboro, NC.  In 2001, he obtained his first Superintendent position at Guyan Golf & C. C. in Huntington, WV, where he remained for 10 years.
Tim and his better half, Kristen, first traveled to the Caribbean for their honeymoon in 1998, and continued to vacation at various islands annually.  The more they traveled, the more they fell in love with the culture, lifestyle, and obviously the climate.  In 2010, they decided to take a permanent vacation by accepting the Assistant Superintendent position here at Provo Golf Club.  For the next 3 years, he learned the nuisances of managing a golf course in the Caribbean from his predecessor Jason Bailey.  In 2014, Tim took over as the Superintendent at Provo Golf Club, and it truly is a dream job for him.

Scott Loosley:  Assistant Professional
 Scott Golf Club Pro

Scott has been a Canadian PGA member since 2012 working under Steve Bennett (Mike Weir’s first golf teacher) at Thames Valley Golf Club in London, Ontario.

Growing up Scott was no stranger to the game or business of golf largely due to the fact that his father Simon Bevan has been the Head Professional at a number of Canadian landmarks such as The Mark O’Meara course, Grand View, in the Muskoka’s, Glen Abbey host of the Canadian Open, and Greenhill’s Country Club in London, Ontario. Through his father Scott had the opportunity to work on his golf swing with renowned instructor Sean Foley while playing golf every chance he got.  In fact in 2013 he even caddied for a close friend in the Canadian Open.

After starting work for Provo Golf Club in the fall of 2012, Scott has now joined the PGC team full time as he quickly found out that this was the destination to be.

Scott has honed his craft through countless hours of teaching members and guests over the past few years priding himself in a positive, fun, teaching style. While vacationing on Provo please contact Scott for a lesson plan that suits your goals.


Richard McGhie:  Assistant Superintendent
Richard McGhea
Richard began his Greenkeeping life in the beautiful setting of Chiltern Forest Golf Club in Hertfordshire, England. This is where he cut his teeth and obtained his NVQ Level 2 for Amenity Horticulture.  After four years of service he then travelled to Australia where he worked on various courses along the East Coast.
Richard then moved to the wet and cold climate of Scotland. He spent four years at Cochrane Castle Golf Club attending college and obtaining his SVQ Level 3 for Amenity Horticulture for which he was promptly nominated for the Student Greenkeeper of the year award in 2005.  It was here in Glasgow, where he met his better half Ainara.
2007 saw the couple move to New Zealand and settled in Queenstown where Richard was First Assistant at Jack’s Point Golf Club which is ranked #3 in the country.  In 2009 after sailing from New Zealand up to Fiji and around the South Pacific Islands, the pair moved to London, England.
Coombe Hill Golf Club was where Richard found himself as Assistant Superintendent and remained for five years.   City life got the better of the pair, so they decided to make the move to the more agreeable nature of the Caribbean where Richard was delighted to be offered the Assistant Superintendent role at Provo Golf Club.
