Lang has previously held the position of Head Golf Professional at both Katoomba Golf Club and Wentworth Falls Country Club in the Blue Mountains of NSW. Lang was honoured to be nominated for NSW teaching Professional of the year in 2015 for his services to the wider western Sydney community. Lang has also worked at the former home of the Australian PGA tournament (Hyatt Regency Coolum).
Coaching and helping people improve is Lang’s passion, his commitment to his students is second to none.
Lang has successfully completed a Diploma in Sports Coaching and Recreation and Fitness. He is a keen student of sports psychology and understands the importance of this in relation to player development and overall enjoyment of the game.
Lang has travelled extensively taking members and guests on golf tours of Thailand and China.
His passion for golf started during school and was confirmed when as a young man travelling through Europe he found the home of Golf; The Old Course, St Andrews, Scotland. 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.
“I can honestly say that Lang has been the only coach who has been able to help me become a single figure handicap golfer.”
“Lang’s passion for the game of golf is second to none and his dedication to his students is beyond compare.”
“In recognition of Lang’s contribution to the development of golf on the Blue Mountains, the Club nominated Lang for the “NSW PGA Coaching Professional of the Year” last year. While Lang did not win the Award, his nomination was acknowledgement of his considerable efforts and fitting recognition from his peers.”
