Greggain was serving as assistant coach of the women’s amateur and Young Pro squads after joining the national team program last January.

“When you bring this talent together and bring them to one place, this opportunity to train together and help each other get better, that’s really unique and one of the biggest opportunities for this program and our juniors,” Greggain told John Chidley-Hill of the Canadian Press, adding that when she was a high-level amateur she would loved to have been around other elite golfers her age.

As a coach, she has been the director of instruction at the Chilliwack Golf Club, and assistant coach for the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades program, and led several teams into the B.C. Summer Games.
