Flinders Golf Club appoints new Golf Professional

The Committee of the Flinders Golf Club is proud to announce that Josh Shaw has been appointed as the new Head Professional.  Having worked at the club for the last four years under outgoing pro Gavin Coyle the Committee feels that this is an opportunity for the club & Josh to continue to move in the right direction.

Having commenced his role as a PGA trainee here at Flinders, Josh has matured into a fully qualified PGA professional, with a love of the industry, a passion for teaching and a drive to provide the best service to members and guests on the Mornington Peninsula.

The Committee acknowledges that outgoing professional Gavin Coyle has left an indelible mark on the Flinders Golf Club, and while there are many aspects of Gavin’s work, and style that they hope Josh will continue to provide, there are also areas that Josh can improve on and drive here at the Flinders Golf Club over the next few years.

The Committee believes that this appointment is not only a fantastic result for the Flinders Golf Club, but a testament to the program that is the PGA traineeship.  It goes without saying that the education, training & mentoring that Josh received over his traineeship journey has left him in a particularly good space to embrace his role moving forward.

“The Flinders Golf Club is well regarded by golfers and is one of Australia’s true coastal golf courses. Situated on the point of Western Port Bay, the conditions and scenery are spectacular, and is an experience you don’t endure at many golf courses around Australia, and even the world”, says Josh, who intends on building on the reputation left by outgoing pro Gavin Coyle.  “The Pro Shop at the Flinders Golf Club has been positioned at the course for 25 years. It presents a warm, friendly, welcoming atmosphere to all members and guests with its great range of golf products and approachable staff members. We aim to provide our members and guests with an experience like no other, at The Flinders Golf Club”.

The Committee, members & staff welcome Josh into his new role, and look forward to working closely with him, and fostering a fruitful working relationship long into the future.
