“John Randle is an award-winning golf instructor and an elite player,” says Barrie McWha, long-time PGA of Canada Member and General Manager of Morningstar. “In his early career, John competed on several professional tours, but found his true calling as a teacher and a coach. Over the last 23 years, John has become a world-class golf instructor… one of the best in Canada. He brings a wealth of experience to his new role here, and with the launch of the Randle Golf Academy at Morningstar, he will help us enhance the Morningstar golfing experience. We are thrilled to welcome John to the Morningstar team.”

Randle formally assumes his new role at Morningstar Golf Club on April 1, 2021. He will be directing operations at the Golf Shop and driving range, along with new academy programs. “I am very excited about joining the team at Morningstar. It is such a great time of renewal here,” says John. “The opportunity to launch the Randle Golf Academy at Morningstar and bring innovative and fun instructional programs to the club is going to be very cool. I look forward to the facility’s return to its place as a go-to course on Vancouver Island.”

The current Morningstar team has brought the course back into fine form as they prepare to celebrate the club’s 30th anniversary this year. Morningstar is also back to hosting championship level tournaments. The BC Golf Provincial Junior Golf Championships will be played here this summer (June 28 – July 02, 2021).  “We are back on track,” says McWha “with the club currently enjoying a full membership with a waiting list, a revived restaurant—The Morningstar Grill—and an excellent team of committed staff, eager for the coming year and the club’s future.”
