Meet the Team

Australian Golf Schools provides intensive, personal golf tuition on the idyllic golf courses located on the Gold Coast, Australia’s number 1 golfing destination. They offer a range of courses ranging from 1 to 5 days, with the 5 day course being the most popular.

Available All Year Round

The main difference between Australian Golf Schools and most other golf schools is that they operate almost every week of the year. Their team of coaches, headed by the school founder Tom Linskey, are all PGA Members with international experience and significant reputations and are available to coach 7 days a week. This means that they can offer you the school of your choice at the time that suits you. A very important consideration in today’s busy world.

PGA Accredited

Australian Golf Schools’ facilities at Emerald Lakes Golf Course are second to none; their coaches are all PGA accredited with International experience and reputations as well as personal experience on the PGA Tours.

Like most people I was very nervous about coming to a golf school for a full week. I was worried that I wasn’t even good enough to be there but I must say,not only did I love it, I can’t believe how much I learnt. In fact I think I learnt even more than I think as I seem to be a lot calmer playing now and seem to understand things better and don’t ‘panic’ ( I think the word you used) anymore and am excited about how well I can play now….not scared of how poorly I play (in front of other people). I can’t thank you enough and I can not wait to see you guys again,I now know I can do this and I look forward to my golfing future

Thank you for your time last week, I feel like I squeezed 4 years worth of learning into 5 days. Interestingly though I never felt overwhelmed, in fact I got more excited as the week went on. I loved playing at The Glades and Sanctuary Cove, that alone was worth the experience, but to play my best ever rounds on those courses was amazing. Never thought I would say this but I cant wait to get home and practice my new short game.
