My first foray into golf was at the age of 13 but to be honest I didn’t’ like it initially as it just didn’t come naturally for me, like other sports I played such as Cricket, AFL and Rugby. But like many other beginner golfers I will never forget the day I truly flushed my first golf shot. It was with a rusty old 4 iron and the feeling of the pure ball contact had me hooked for life!

I played Junior Golf at the Darwin Golf Club and then Woodlands Golf Club in Melbourne.

I became a Golf Professional via my 3 year traineeship with Trevor Flakemore at the Waverly Golf Club in Melbourne.

I then worked on cruise ships for a few years operating Golf Tours throughout the Mediterranean and Caribbean.

My travels eventually took me to Austria for 13 years where I coached golfers from Continental Europe and had to learn to coach in a different language.

From a playing perspective I played some tournaments on the European Challenge and Alps Tours as well as playing the European Tour Qualifying School. I then played the Asian Tour Qualifying School and gained a full membership on the secondary development tour and played a handful of events whilst being based in Darwin.

Since my playing days I have been the director of Golf at the Murray Downs Golf and Country Club from 2018 until April 2021.

Today I coach at the Cairns Golf Club and around the Cairns Region.
