About Trekking Golf Coaches
Trekking Golf Coaches was formed in January 2018 by Braden Becker & Hayley Bettencourt (PGA Australia Professional & ALPG Professional).
After purchasing a small PMX Camper trailer, they both packed the car and drove across the Nullarbor to play the 2018 season of events.
With the camper trailer and their current vehicle (Nissan Dualis), they could travel to golf tournaments together, stay in the trailer instead of expensive hotels/motels and see some of the sights that Australia has to offer along the road.
Being Golf Professionals, the job requires a lot of air travel and staying in hotels especially overseas.
When at home in Australia, why not tick off some of mother natures best creations and immerse yourself in the Australian spirit & culture.
Their experience of travelling to rural areas of Australia opened up a "gap" in the golfing industry.
Rural golf clubs that have fantastic golf courses don't have Head Professionals/coaches servicing their members.
Braden & Hayley saw that if golf coaches could visit these rural clubs often & provide a coaching service, the players of golf Australia wide will be on the improve and promoting the game for the future.
Trekking Golf Coaches aims to travel full time to rural golf clubs across Australia and provide a service to members of all skill levels and ages.
TGC want to grow the game of golf and showcase that the sport can be played in any location & also show that golf is the greatest physical and mental challenge. The vision is to become a transportable pro-shop and be able to provide golf equipment and products to golfers as well as lessons.
Braden & Hayley have gained extensive experience in the golfing industry through playing professional golf events and working a PGA Trainee/PGA Professional & Golf Operations Manager respectively.
Braden and Hayley have accomplished many achievements throughout their careers. Braden winning over 5 times on the PGA Pro-Am Tour in 2018 & Hayley being named the Jan Stephenson ALPG Rookie of the Year for 2016.
Together they are now trekking around Australia, continuing to play professional golf and further their experience in the golfing industry.
