Our coaching philosophy.

Theoretically, there are 7 main shots you need to learn in golf. If you know how to play these shots, you can enjoy yourself and be happy with your game every time you play. We teach you these on real greens by holding our golf lessons on the course itself.

Our coaching philosophy will give you the kind of confidence, satisfaction and enjoyment that can easily translate to other aspects of your life – not just on the course. Our approach is fun, humorous and relaxed, with a professional undertone and serious commitment to increasing your skill.

We focus on these 7 main shots:

  • Driver
  • Fairway woods/hybrid
  • Iron shot
  • Pitch shot
  • Chip shot
  • Bunker shot
  • Putting.

Our golf coaching lessons in Brisbane are packaged to provide the best experience, both on and off the course. We consider everything that would make your game enjoyable and facilitate this in our coaching sessions. And to put it simply, this is the fastest and most fun way to learn and improve.

Here we introduce you to our team of PGA Golf Professionals:

Shane Heath
PGA Golf Professional

Born and raised in Far North Queensland Shane started swinging a golf club as soon as he could walk and took up the game competitively from the age of 10. As a junior golfer, Shane always had his sights set on a career as a PGA Professional, winning multiple junior tournaments at club and regional levels.

In 2012, Shane moved to the Golf Coast to start a Diploma in Golf Management through the PGA International Golf Institute based at Sanctuary Cove. During the 4 years of study, Shane also completed a Bachelor of Business through Griffith University on the Gold Coast and completed his PGA Traineeship at Lakelands Golf Club graduating in 2015. Shane received the PGA IGI Excellence in Golf Education award in 2015 following his Golf and Academic achievements throughout 2012-2015, which included Captaining the PGA IGI Gold Coast Pennant squad and representing Griffith University at the World University Games held in St Andrew, Scotland. Shane stayed on at Lakelands Golf Club as an assistant coach working alongside David Nable and was the assistant coach at the Robina State High School Golf Academy in 2016-17.

Shane moved to Brisbane in 2017 and has since been working in the Pro Shop at St Lucia Golf Links. Shane is eager to get back to coaching and is passionate about helping golfers achieve their golfing dreams.


Book a $79 golf evaluation.

Real success begins with a professional 45 minute golf evaluation including swing analysis and mapping out your golf improvement goals.

The difference between coaching and lessons.

Golf lessons address immediate concerns, whereas coaching involves a planned program. Our golf coaching in Brisbane occurs over an ongoing period with short and long term goals. We customise our coaching style to the individual, based on personality, club equipment, short and long term goals, and your current skill. We teach you how to draw on all your senses and understand the physiological movement behind golf.

Specialising in private and semi-private golf lessons in Brisbane, we don’t tend to offer group lessons, as we prefer the benefits of small, private lessons, where every person receives a dedicated amount of time and advice on their game.

How We Measure a Golfer’s Improvement

We use a Performance Scorecard (which reflects our 7 shot philosophy). This is a unique point of difference at St Lucia Golf Links, which we also use with our 30 minute complimentary evaluation. The scorecard highlights the strengths and weaknesses of your game and is an easy way to analyse and identify the areas you may need to focus on.
