My name is Lori Dithurbide, I am originally from Cheticamp and have lived in Halifax for the past 12 years.
I started golfing as a teenager at Le Portage Golf Club and am currently a member at Ashburn Golf Club.
I have been a member of the Golf Nova Scotia’s Sport Development Committee since its inception and look forward to contributing to the Board of Directors.
I work as a professor in Kinesiology at Dalhousie University, teaching and doing research in the area of sport psychology (including golf research!). I also work as a Mental Performance Consultant with the Canadian Sport Institute Atlantic and with a number of high-performance athletes, coaches and teams across Canada.
I also sit on the Sport Committee and Amateur National Team Selection Committee for Golf Canada.
I have participated in a number of GNS tournaments including Women’s Provincial Amateur tournaments and Pinehursts, and enjoy fun rounds of golf with friends both at home and abroad.
I’m excited to help GNS move forward in making golf in Nova Scotia accessible to all who want to participate and to help develop golfers of all ages and levels.
