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.

Our Directors Jens Holland and Hans Pettersson who manage all three brands on-site have a hands on approach and overall dedication that has seen them attract a wonderful team of Management, golf and service professionals to ensure your experience is one to relish in.

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

Book a $9 golf evaluation.

Real success begins with a professional evaluation of your game.

When can I expect to see improvements in my golf swing and game?

Immediate improvement should you follow the advice and game plan of your PGA professional.

The St Lucia Links Golf Professionals are passionate and dedicated to helping each golfer reach their goals and greatest potential on the course.

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.


Other golf services we offer.

Golf Simulator Experience

Assess your game while playing on some of the best courses in the world.


Club & Putter

Tailored fitting to find the right clubs to suit what you need.


Golf Day

A great day on the greens with the people behind your organisation.

Our easy-going approach will keep you feeling comfortable and focused on your goals. We cover the 7 main golf shots and even have complimentary clubs if you don’t own any. With ladies’ golf lessons, you can gain immense confidence, satisfaction, and enjoyment from improving your game.
