Cameron McNeil

PGA of Canada Apprentice Professional

Cam grew up playing golf in high school at Mountain Woods Golf Club in Moncton, NB before taking a less traditional path into the golf industry. As a graduate from UNB in Mechanical Engineering in 2017, it wasn't until 2021 when he jumped in head first and opened Par 94 Bar & Golf Lounge in downtown Fredericton. Owning and operating an indoor golf facility complete with 4 Trackman simulators quickly lead Cam into pursuing his PGA of Canada membership.

In 2022 Cam became a PGA of Canada Apprentice Professional and is currently working towards his Class A designation. Due to his unique background before starting in the golf industry, Cam has a very data driven approach to coaching and instruction, with a focus on customer service.

Cam's passion for the game of golf involves a large focus on inclusivity and accessibility. Creating a more inviting environment for new players from all walks of life is the main mission of Par 94 and a core value for Cam.
