Welcome to the Tour LAB at Northview!
“If you were able to make a lasting positive impact on your golf game by yourself…you would have done it by now! Let us help you create a game plan that will help you accomplish your golf goals!”
The Tour LAB was established in 2010 when Matt Palsenbarg and Jason Glass wanted to build a 12 month coaching program that combined their skills of golf and fitness. Jason at the time was the Team Canada Golf strength coach and Matt Palsenbarg was the High Performance Coach for BC Golf. Since the inception of the program, the team has grown to include fitness coach Lindsay Manion and golf coaches Chris Lutes, John Shin and Dan Naismith. Our goal is to help you accomplish your golf goals regardless of what stage you are starting at or where you want to take your game!

Adults New to Golf- With a reputation for high performance and junior golf sometimes our other programs can get overlooked. Our LAB coach Dan Naismith has been running his Beginner Bootcamp program for 3 years. The success of the program has been built upon his amazing students and the word of mouth referrals he receives for his exemplary coaching. Learning golf is not a short term or quick process. Dan designed a program with a manual and online video support to help the student learn and to help you remember the steps and drills taught during your session. If you or someone you know is new to golf and looking for a supportive and fun community to learn this great game…Dan is the man!
