Tom Linskey - Director Of Coaching

Heading up the team is the Owner/Operator of the ELGCC.

As a golf professional who has been in the industry for over 40 years, Tom brings an immeasurable teaching and managerial background with him. Since he finished playing the Tour himself he has owned and managed various golf courses and driving ranges throughout NSW and QLD and has a keen eye for employing teaching staff who really know how to teach. Tom has spent his career helping golfers from beginners to touring professionals producing many champions along the way. He led the Italian Squad as National Coach during the 1980's and has seen and solved every swing problem imaginable. His main Professional successes were the Italians, Costantino Rocca and Alberto Binaghi (now National Coach and responsible for Matteo Manassero and the Molinari brothers), Gabriel Hjertstedt from Sweden, Andre Stolz and Colin Bishop from Australia. His pupils have also won numerous Amateur Championships including both French and Italian titles as well as Gabriel’s part in the Swedish Team’s win of the Eisenhower Trophy.
A no-nonsense approach coupled with a thorough understanding of the golf swing, together with a long teaching history makes Tom a masterful instructor for any golfing enthusiast.

 Josh Smith

Having completed his traineeship at Twin Waters and Logan, Josh went on to be the Head Professional at Riverlakes Golf Course in Brisbane. After several years there he decided that teaching was more his passion. So impressive are his skills as an instructor, that Tom Linskey invited him to co-host his Australian Golf Schools events in Australia and Italy with him. Along with this Josh has had experience playing throughout Asia and Australia. Josh has assisted many of his Professional peers with their golf games, but is equally as comfortable helping beginners, kids, ladies and gents.
His area of expertise is clearly in the realm of short game, and anyone wishing to sharpen their edge in this department should seek him out for his help.
