Wembley Golf Course in Perth is delighted to launch Australia’s second PGA Centre for Learning and Performance in addition to its original location at the PGA National Office at the Sandhurst Club in Melbourne.

The Centre, which features Trackman and Sam PuttLab technology, allows golfers to improve their game in conjunction with coaching from Certified PGA Professionals.

Wembley Golf Course, a public facility, already boasts a strong coaching staff of PGA Professionals however this facility will enable them to harness technology to help further improve their clients’ games.

“We are very pleased to rebrand our coaching facility as a PGA Centre for Learning and Performance and align with the PGA, the peak professional golf body in this country,” said Josh Madden, a PGA Professional and the General Manager at Wembley Golf Course.

“We currently have 15 PGA Professionals on staff including two PGA Trainees and the PGA’s WA state office is also located on-site.

“To add the PGA Centre for Learning and Performance to our facility is another feather in our cap and another great golf experience that we are able to offer golfers in Western Australia.”

As the largest public golf facility in Western Australia, Wembley Golf Course offers a 36 hole golf course, an 80 bay undercover driving range, a green grass pro shop, mini golf course and excellent dining options.

The opening of the PGA Centre for Learning and Performance forms part of their commitment to technology and growing the game.

“As arguably Australia’s busiest golf facility our commitment to grow the game and now enhance the game is at the forefront of this initiative,” added Madden.

“We want to continue working closely with the PGA Professionals who work day in day out to help people learn this great game and to now offer them access to this state of the art facility for their coaching services is just fantastic.”

Having launched the first PGA Centre for Learning and Performance in 2008 the PGA of Australia is pleased to bring the state of the art facility to Wembley Golf Course.

“We are delighted to provide Wembley Golf Course with access to the PGA Centre for Learning and Performance brand,” said Gavin Kirkman, CEO of the PGA of Australia.

“We are committed to providing services to our PGA Professionals and the PGA Centre for Learning and Performance provides an opportunity for PGA coaches and PGA Trainees in WA to come in and utilise state of the art technology to improve and learn.

“Tour Professionals are also able to access the facility to fine-tune their games making Wembley GC not just a centre for learning and growing the game but a home base for high performance.

“We have already seen a number of Australia’s best Tour Professionals visit the PGA Centre for Learning and Performance including Brett Rumford, Michael Long, Peter Lonard, Minjee Lee and Jarryd Felton.”
