About Me

    Vincent Kabaso, a native of Zambia and the first assistant PGA professional at Laurel Creek Country Club in Mount Laurel. Selected by the PGA of America as one of 15 members of its PGA LEAD class of 2020-21, which is the Association’s leadership development program.

    Vincent started his journey to PGA membership four years ago while employed at the New Haven Country Club, working in the bag room and mentoring the junior program. On April 2, 2018, he received a letter that informed him he had earned his PGA membership.


    “We didn’t really have any after school activities so, prior to golf, I was shooting birds and mice with catapults or swimming in a nearby snake and disease-infested stream.”
