Former Southern Highlands Head Pro Has Magical Vision for the Future of Golf

Las Vegas, Nevada (May 26, 2015)--Scott Cowan was the head professional at the prestigious Southern Highlands Golf Club for nine years. Prior to that, he cut his golf management teeth at Hamilton Golf and Country Club, one of Canada’s most historic clubs which opened in 1894. To say Cowan has experienced a little in golf is like saying that Jack Nicklaus used to intimidate his opponents a little bit. Cowan, who recently completed a two-year stint as the regional manager of business development for Pacific Links, an international private club membership company, is now plotting his future and launching a new venture, appropriately called The Cowan Golf Company. -- By Brian Hurlburt.
