From working at many of the top Gold Coast resort courses as golf cart staff, golf & sport administrator, organizing corporate golf days to coordinating golfing & sporting adventure tours for the past 18 years. Emma knows the golfing industry inside out. She currently plays off a 8 handicap, and is Club Champ, Foursomes Champ of her local course. Emma loves to punt talk footy NRL (the Roosters are her favourite), plays touch footy, competitive netball, loves a boot camp class, and any other sport she can get her hands on. On top of that plays wife to GB (see below), mum to Chloe (13) and Sam (10), a cat and a dog, so life if very hectic, yet fulfilling.
Current Golf Course Superintendent at Oxley Golf Club in Brisbane, Glenn knows everything his wife Emma doesn’t know about golf courses. Having been a greenkeeper for 30 years and working at some of the finest course – The Grand, Royal Pines and Robina Woods, while also being involved in the preparation of theses courses for the tournaments of: Royal Pines Ladies Masters and The Australian Open at the Grand in 2000. When he’s not out working on his greens at Oxley or mowing his own home lawn, Glenn loves to now golf (playing off 14), punt, go fishing or crabbing and watching his beloved South Sydney Bunnies (hopefully beating the roosters).
Our beloved Photographer and head of Administration – your tour wouldn’t go as smooth if it weren’t for Kari and her booking / checking and rechecking of your tour details. Kari’s background consists of Hotels/ Wedding Venues & Photography. So while juggling the golfOZ office, her partner Steve and daughter Ella (13 ), dog Rosie, cat Missy, Kari is a busy bee. Kari’s only love in the sporting world is cricket – Ponting was & will always be her favourite, however in recent times she is a big BBL fan and in the off season Masterchef & Survivor are her go too!
golfOZ Operations - Contracted Driver
Our main pain in the butt driver – the one that everyone loves – Big Al. Would sell ice to Eskimo’s – god he can talk. Al has been driving with golfOZ since Emma had Chloe and is a big part of the team. Al loves talking, knows the Gold Coast inside out, is a country boy from Finley and can chat on all levels about sport, politics, general gossip etc. Al doesn’t play golf that regularly however that may change since as he finally had both hips done and both knees reconstructed. Al loves his footy – preferably AFL, and is a hands on hubby at home – the house reno king in between driving the golf groups around while still happily married to wife Susan, daughter Willow(11) and son Rowdy (8).
