Welcome our new pro golfer Zac!

We are delighted to welcome pro-golfer Zac Rollins to the West Beach Parks family. Zac joins the West Beach Parks Golf Academy with more than 13 years of coaching experience, and he cannot wait to help golfers of all abilities get game ready.

Zac, who is a full PGA Australia member, said: “I’m really looking forward to getting started, meeting the West Beach Parks golf regulars and helping people on and off the green. I’m always up for a chat and always happy to offer a tip or two to anyone on putting green, short game area or on the Range.”

He added: “I can’t wait to get stuck in and help West Beach Parks golfers improve and achieve their goals. I keep my coaching technique simple and adapt easily to all skill levels. All golf styles are individual, and we all swing differently so I make sure that I spend the time understanding and explaining the issue and working with clients to help them achieve lower scores.”

Zac, who has coached the Tasmanian Ladies State Team, was for three years a coach at X Golf Marion, has worked with numerous developmental squads and is comfortable both teaching children and adults. “I cannot wait to get to work in the Academy and on the Driving Range. It is a fantastic place to play and to teach!”

Zac is available for lessons on Wednesdays, Saturday mornings and Sundays. He will also run MyGolf clinics between 9am and 11am on Saturdays.

Keen to swing by for a session with Zac? Give our Pro Shop a call on 8356 4811.
