Our Wood Instructors

Adrien Wright – Associate Golf Professional

I’m a farm boy from the Comox Valley, BC. I joined the PGA in 2005 while working at Swan e Set Bay Resort after that I worked at the Okanagan Golf Club in Kelowna. In 2010, I moved to Alberta working at a few different clubs like Elbow Springs, Heritage Pointe, and Redwood Meadows. In 2019, I joined the team at Woodside GC in Airdrie as their Teaching Professional. Wow, I have bounced around eh? One thing has remained constant in my life over my last 10 years and that is my wife Kristen. We now have two beautiful children (Charlotte & Gavin). My family is what keeps me grounded and who always pushing me to be better.

Mark Hillcoff – Associate Golf Professional

  Mark has been a Class “A” PGA Professional for over 10 years. He got his start in golf relatively late and did not pick up a club until after High School. Once he realized that he had a passion for the game, Mark decided to make golf his career. He attended Lethbridge College and received a diploma in Professional Golf Management. Mark started his professional career in Saskatoon.  After getting sick of the winters, he decided to move back to Alberta and has found his way to the Woodside Golf Club. His true passion is golf instruction and Mark has enjoyed helping golfers of all types. He has successfully taught over 1000 lessons and loves introducing players to this great game.

Junior Performance Academy

Woodside is excited to announce the first Junior Performance Academy in Airdrie.

Students will have an opportunity to learn all winter and compete against the other academy students. Using the Flightscope we are able to better track player development over longer periods. We will also do monthly challenges and further engagement to have the students compete against themselves and each other.


Due to the available space we will only be offering private lessons in our The Wood Performance Centre. We will do some group programs throughout the winter in the Bunker but those dates and programs have yet to be determined.
