    Looking for a golf partner in Canberra

    Hi I have just moved to Canberra and am looking for a golf partner. If you are interested, or know anyone who is interested please drop me a line. Im 38 and come from UK. Thanks Mark
  2. Hi all, just a post out of interest really more than anything. My girlfriend and I are heading out to Australia in July 2015 for a 6 week break to do some city hopping and general travelling (not the backpacker type). We haven't got any rock solid plans of living and working in Australia but it is something we have spoken about and I guess we are using this trip to see if the way of life is different and we can acclimatise to it? I am 27 and a fully qualified British PGA Golf Professional, and have been for the last 4 years. I guess my first line of questioning would be; what is the current economic situation with golf in Australia? Would you say there is much scope for a British qualified professional? I am fully aware there is an Australian version of the qualification I have and I guess that most golf clubs are inclined to hire home based professionals as opposed to overseas applicants. Would I be best landing in Australia and doing some "recce" work with golf clubs in different states to put the feelers out? Or would it be wise to send a couple of emails closer to the time?:wideeyed: Any advice or help would be massively appreciated, thank you in advance Lee :smile:
  3. I play golf regularly (not very good) need to meet people that are up for a game now and again, getting a bit boring playing on my own. anyone out there? Danny

  5. Hi My partner and I have recently moved to Perth and are living in Duncraig we have only been here a couple of months. My partner is finding it harder to adjust to life here more than me I think its mainly partly due to the fact he his not happyin his work (plastering). Are there any guys out there that do golf on a regular basis or could anybody please suggest any golf clubs it may be worth him joining its just so he can start meeting people? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks Debbie :biggrin:

  8. Hi, I've been i'n Canberra for three weeks, we've just moved into a 6 month rental. We bought a tv yesterday and bought an internal aerial which picks up around 15 channels. Anyhow, I was trying to watch the Golf British Open last night and it wasn't on any of the channel I had. Do I need Foxtel for this? I would also like the ability to watch premiership football (uk), I suppose record and watch first thing in the morning. Also, with rugby union world cup coming up, I don't want to miss it! I imagine Foxtel would cost a fortune to be able to watch Uk sports? Thanks! Mike.

    Pro Golf jobs

    Hi, I've just stumbled across this forum and it looks like the best place to ask a few questions! I'm a qualified PGA professional golfer and I'm looking at moving to Australia in 2-3 years and would like to know if theres many jobs in the golf industry out there. If so, where is the golfing hotbed in Oz etc. Ideally I'll be looking for a job as a head professional but would consider an assistant pro job at a decent club with a good junior academy. Cheers.
  22. Hi folks My hubby is sure he read somewhere that you are not allowed to import used golf clubs into Oz. I think I may have read it somewhere or possibly told a fib which my hubby now believes - but I really can't remember ! A few years ago he was severely told off by customs at Sydney for taking his golf shoes into Oz and was told they'd have to be cleaned - they were whisked away and dumped in a bowl of disinfectant - think hubby was expecting a nice scrub and polish. Does anyone know ? BTW he's already been choosing his new clubs from Golf Box so I don't think he'd miss his current callaways. Thanks Lisa:wub:
