Golf Coaches Profiles

 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.

Lang decided to stay and was lucky enough to live in St Andrews for a year. At this time, already an accomplished golfer, he realised whilst playing the Old course every day that professional golf was going to be his passion and career. His favourite course is still the Old Course and his best professional round was 9 under 61 at Wynnum Golf Club in Brisbane.
