Head Golf Professional – Lisa Jean

I grew up in country Victoria where sport was expected to be played. I started playing golf with my grandparents (who were golf tragics) at the age of 8 at a very small club, Merrigum. My brother and I were the only juniors at the club for a long time and we were treated like everyone’s children or grandchildren. We played as often as we could. I fell in love with the game when I started to travel as part of the Victorian team.

I was lucky enough to attend the Australian Institute of Sport for 3 years and learnt a lot about the game and myself. I went to Oklahoma State University for a year before realising I didn’t want to study but play golf professionally. I turned professional in 2004 after obtaining my Ladies European Tour card on my first attempt. I played the LET for 6 years before injury sent me into early retirement.

My passion for golf couldn’t be lost so I became a teaching professional in 2010. Since then I have been a Club Professional at Tocumwal, Wollongong, Horsham and Huntingdale. I was a teaching professional at Albert Park driving range where I learnt a lot about club fitting and TrackMan. Recently I left the Australian Golf Service Centre at Sandringham Golf Links. I have been privileged enough to travel the world playing golf and I really enjoy imparting what I have learned over the years to others.

Lisa’s Teaching Philosophy

Golf is a game for all ages and levels. My teaching philosophy is based on the person as everyone is unique. I believe there isn’t one way to swing a golf club. I work with the person’s natural tendencies and abilities. Golf is a great game and I like seeing my students improve and enjoy their golf. As I have had a lot of injuries I always ask about people’s physical limitations and always strive to help them work around their incapabilities.

A Golfing Oasis

Murray Downs is a mint golf course surrounded by dusty paddocks not far from the mighty Murray River in NSW. This golf course is a gem and was in superb condition and all credit is due to the superintendent and his greens keeping team. We stayed at the accommodation across from the golf course and we were within walking distance to the first tee and a very well stocked pro shop. If you love playing golf this course should be high on your list.

Set amongst a picturesque background of river gums, the course has unique signature holes including the 5th with a long water carry over to the green making it a challenging task for those that choose to risk it and hit straight for the green. The course provides relief on other holes including the other Par 3 11th and 15th.
