Born in Scotland and raised in Eastern Ontario, Oliver was first introduced to the game of golf at nine years old. This was on a short course, which doubled as a sheep pasture in the small village of Dunecht, Scotland. He soon fell in love with the game and has been chasing golf balls around the world ever since.
After moving to Canada in 1993, he became an accomplished junior and then amateur player. He grew up in Stirling, Ontario before attending the University of Guelph, attaining a Bachelors of Landscape Architecture (B.L.A.) degree in 2004. At the time, the varsity golf team was lucky enough to play Cutten Fields, an historic Stanley Thompson course. This cemented Oliver’s passion for golf course architecture. In 2005, he turned professional and began a journey to compete against the worlds best. He has played on many international tours, and has visited lots of the worlds top golf destinations, clubs and courses, along with countless others not-so-well known.
Oliver is based on Canada’s West Coast, where he lives with his wife and two children. He continues to compete regularly and is annually ranked as one of Canada’s top golfers. His competitive expertise, coupled with years of working in the golf industry, along with landscape architectural education and experiences, offer Oliver an understanding and perspective unique to the golf industry. He is especially interested in how the creative design of golf courses can be used to maximize the health, well being and enjoyment of golfers young and old, while respecting the landscapes and environments the game is played upon.
