As a former tournament player, Gavin knows what it takes to reach his full potential as a golfer. He strives for all his players to reach the same and is with you for the ride.
Gavin has been a golf professional for 25+ years. As a father to two beautiful daughters, he loves trail running, bushwalking, diving, and of course, the world of golf.
His experience expands across public clubs to prestigious private courses such as NSW Golf Club, as well as running his own golf business for 10+ years.
Despite the length of time he’s been in the industry, Gavin is a big believer in using technology to quantify the message with evidence-based material, to make the journey of improvement clear & easy to follow.
Did you know?
1I have competed in 3 x 50km Ultra Trail hikes in the Blue Mountains
2I once attempted to wrestle a professional Mongolian wrestler and got tossed away in front of hundreds of people
3I also once got bitten in the backside by a Pakistani embassy guard dog in Beijing, China
I’ve always found that too much information can often overwhelm a golfer and as a result, I strive to take a complicated topic and turn it into something easy to understand. I look at where a player is currently and where they could be. Using evidence-based material gets the player excited about playing and improving, and allows me to devise a plan to deliver a desired result.
My first step is to identify areas for improvement and prioritize the order of what we focus on. Using measurable technology and evidence-based material, my players will be given exact corridors and parameters for success that are easy to follow.
The future for golf is that the industry will need to keep evolving and incorporate new ways to play. It will move golf away from the traditional confines. The use of technology has changed how the game is taught, and virtual golf will help to teach players how to play the game better, and maximise performance. That will translate to better scores out on the course.

Gav is a fantastic coach with a wealth of experience to draw on. He does not take a text book, paint by numbers approach; but rather he understands that there are many ways to swing… as long as you nail certain fundamentals along the way(!). My swing and all round game has progressed significantly by working through and focusing on the fundamentals with Gav, and not wasting time doing crazy drills, trying to look or swing a certain way or hit certain numbers that are beyond what’s reasonable with the time I have to put towards the game.
Gav has coached me for around 9 months, taking me from a beginner to a 20 handicap. I’ve appreciated Gav’s ability to build strong fundamentals that we have then tweaked over time to maintain a pace of constant improvement, making learning the sport great fun. I’m particularly appreciative of Gav’s ability to quickly identify the cause of problems with my swing and then put in place drills and/or checks for me to easily avoid these in the future. Gav has overall been an excellent coach and I would gladly recommend him to others.
