Brett Saunders

Director of Coaching & Development

Australian PGA ‘AAA’ Member

Brett has been named one of Canada’s Top-50 instructors, but to say his success ends at the Canadian border would be a serious understatement. It extends well beyond that, to mentoring top players at every level in over 35 countries around the globe throughout his 20 years of professional coaching experience.

Brett now brings that experience to Meadow Gardens GC as an instrumental part in the development and on-going operations of the SaundersRodgers Performance Golf Academy. Saunders has developed some of the most successful junior golf development programs in the country, where a number of leading professionals, college players, amateurs and juniors train to compete against the world’s best.

One of the most detail-oriented coaches in the game, Brett’s unique ability to keep it fun and entertaining coupled with his unmatched work ethic has proven to be a winning formula for developing his students from any level to reach their most lofty goals.
