Ian Webb

Throughout Ian Webb’s three-decade long career as a PGA of Ontario member, he made hundreds of friends and set an example for other golf professionals to follow in his caring nature, willingness to help others, and dedication to being the best at his profession that he could be.

Ian’s tenure of almost 20 seasons at Credit Valley, starting as the Director of Golf in 2000 and moving to the role of General Manager/Chief Operating Officer in 2008, followed notable stops as the Head Professional at Peterborough Golf & Country Club and roles as assistant and apprentice professional at St. Georges Golf & Country Club and Bridgewater Country Club, where he began his golf career in 1985.

Throughout his career in golf, he spent countless hours mentoring and assisting young professionals and was well known throughout the industry as a leader and mentor to some of the top current and future professionals. Ian spent many years on the PGA of Ontario Board of Directors and was a frequent competitor at local Pro-Ams and PGA events.

Ian’s love for golf and those around him ran deep. After he was diagnosed with terminal cancer, the Canadian (and worldwide) golf community rallied in support of Ian, who was regarded as one of the best people in the business. In typically Webby fashion, he set a new standard for all of us to follow him. #WebbyStrong became one of the most popular hashtags within the Canadian golf community.

Ian passed away from his battle with Glioblastoma on September 7th, 2019 and left a lasting legacy within the fabric of Ontario golf and beyond, as the PGA of Canada re-named its scholarships in Ian’s honour in 2019.
