"I have been working with Glenn now for approximately 6 years. When we started I was playing off a 3 handicap at Pennant Hills GC in Sydney. Since then I have won over 10 national and international events and now live in Texas USA and am playing golf professionally full time. Glenn has had a huge influence on my swing and overall development of my game.

"I met Glenn at The Ridge Golf Course in Sydney in 2011. I started with a package of 5 lessons and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Glenn is very relaxed and encouraging, he genuinely wants to help you improve and makes you feel special"

Simone Newbie
(Beginner golfer)

"I first met Glenn when he was the Head Coach of The NSW Institute of Sport when I was on a Golf Scholarship, since turning pro I have worked closely with Glenn and my confidence and game is a reflection of Glenn's knowledge and passion"

Daki Falcon
(PGA Trainee, Cumberland GC)

"If Glenn can get me down to a 20 handicap, then he can do anything. I had several lessons with a number of coaches before i was referred to Glenn by a friend, but I felt like I was getting too much information but Glenn kept it simple and I improved, I highly recommend him to anyone"

Christine Martin
(20 handicap)

"I went to Glenn with a specific goal, to win the Club championships at Royal Sydney where I am a member, nearly 12 months to the day after meeting Glenn I won the championships which was very rewarding. I like a lot of Glenn's clients travel over an hour to see him, but I never regret taking the trip"
