Bob Farant was born and raised in Ottawa and began his golf career as an assistant golf pro at the Arnprior Golf Club. Fifteen years later Bob was hired as the head Golf Professional at the Royal Ottawa golf club where he developed a very successful junior golf program with the help of his assistant pros.
Bob has had an extensive and successful career of teaching and coaching at some of Canada’s most prestigious golf clubs including the Toronto Golf Club and the Royal Ottawa. Bob also had the opportunity to work with NCAA college players and a few professional tour players but like most successful golf instructors, the bulk of the instruction and coaching has been with the average golfer that is just trying to improve.
If you are a beginner, a competitive amateur or a recreational player who would just like to enjoy the game more, Bob is ready to help.
