WEEK #45: CARLA MUNCH
Please tell us a little bit about yourself.
Born and raised in Cambridge, Ontario, I had a wonderful childhood filled with lots of different sports and opportunities. My parents and younger sister were all involved in sport and most of our evenings and weekends were spent in arenas, at ball diamonds and as I got older at the golf course. I grew up playing softball, ringette and hockey and once I got to high school, volleyball, badminton and field hockey. I loved high school sports and was inspired by many of my physical education teachers I had.
I played varsity field hockey and studied at the University of Waterloo with the hopes to one day become a Phys Ed/Geography teacher but the golf bug got the best of me. I am now the Head Golf Professional and Golf Course Owner at Cambridge Golf Club.
Coaching has become my passion since turning professional in 2003. I was hired at The University of Waterloo as their first Varsity Women’s Golf Coach in 2004. We have had a very successful program that has allowed me to be chosen as Coach for Team Canada for the FISU World University Golf Championships in South Africa, Spain and Switzerland as well as at the FISU Summer Universiade in Shenzhen, China.
I am married to Chris and we have the most amazing 2 boys, ages 13 and 9 that are now keeping our evenings and weekends busy in arenas, on ball diamonds and on the golf course.
