2. Gavin Beikoff Golf Professional
Born in Townsville I moved at a young age to Mackay where upon finishing high school and reducing my handicap to 3 I begun my PGA apprenticeship with Mackay Golf Club Professional Barry Vassella. After successfully completing my PGA traineeship in 1991 I embarked on a playing career here in Australia before eventually returning to Mackay as the Assistant Professional. I decided to apply and was successful in becoming the Head Professional at Churchill Park Golf Club a 27 hole facility in Melbourne. After seven years we decided to head back to Queensland where I become the Head Professional at Caboolture Golf Club here in Brisbane. After ten great years at Caboolture Golf Club, I chose a different path and headed west to the Gas Fields of Roma for two years working as a T/A with WDS LTD building the gas pipeline to Gladstone. After the contract finished I returned to the big smoke back to the golf industry working as Assistant Professional at North Lakes G.C, Ashgrove G.C and now for the past 5 years here at Pacific Golf Club.
With 30 years experience, 17 of those as a Head Professional and a AAA PGA Rating I am able assist all members and visitors with all their golfing needs and look forward to a long and successful association with Pacific Golf Club.
