Do you want to enjoy the game again? New to Golf? Wanting to be the best you can be?
The name Mark Gibson is synonymous with golf. For it seems a lifetime Mark has been associated with golf. It was destined that Mark would have a deep love of golf and it would be a large part of his life when at four years of age he was regularly on the golf course caddying for his father and had his first golf lesson on his sixth birthday. With that start in golf it is most likely that you might spend a fair amount of your life’s work on giving golf lessons.
Mark grew up on the Gold Coast, Australia with golf as a major part of his life. He was a gifted player who tried his hand as a tournament professional when the money in professional golf was not as it is now. Mark always had a passion for teaching the game he loved. He also had a thirst for knowledge. He has a desire to not only be the best he could be but be the best there is as a golf coach. From his start as a golf coach at Royal Queensland Golf Club in the late 70’s Mark’s journey has been one of learning and discovery for this golf coach. Today Mark is the owner and coaching director of Mark Gibson’s Exceptional Golf @ Royal Pines Resort, leading a team of coaching professionals at one of the premier Golf Resorts in Australia.
Mark has been quoted as saying there is no better sight than the smile of a struggling player hit that super shot and this phosliphy has unpinned Mark’s coaching career from those just starting out to the Elite Professionals.
Mark is a passionate student as well as a passionate teacher. He has seen his passion for study result in being 1 of only 3 with AAA PGA Accreditation and Master Fitter status as a club fitter out of the 1200 PGA members in Australia. Mark has won the PGA's top teaching award not once but twice being the PGA's National Teacher of the year while winning Queensland PGA Golf Teacher of the year an unprecedented three times.
Every day is a fresh adventure for Mark who lives by the creed:
"Those who dare to teach must never cease to learn" -
