It is with great pleasure I announce that Darren Bowman has officially completed all requirements of his traineeship and is now a Full PGA Member. Darren started his traineeship in January 2016 and has enjoyed 3 strong years at Ballarat, being in the Top 50 trainees throughout Australia every year.
2019 will be an exciting year for Darren as he has just accepted a position as Golf Professional at the RACV Goldfields Resort in Creswick starting January 1st.
Darren has been extremely grateful of the support and encouragement shown by all members through his Go Fund Me campaign and also with the verbal encouragement on a weekly basis.
Darren will be available for coaching from early 2019 here at Ballarat Golf Club and will join both Angela Tatt and myself as Full PGA Coaching Professionals.
When 1 door shuts, another opens and with that I would like to inform you all that Travis Tatt has signed on as a PGA Trainee from January 1st and will join the Pro Shop Staff.
Travis has been a stand out performer in the Ballarat District for over 20 years and wants to put back into his local community by becoming a PGA Professional and sharing his knowledge with our members.
Angela Tatt will remain here as my Coaching Professional and will be opening her diary up for more coaching in 2019 as a HUGE 2018 has proven that the members and public have enjoyed her coaching style.
Once again I would like to thank you all for your support in 2018 and wish all members a fun and safe Christmas period.
