PROSERPINE GOLF

AFTER over 10 years without a golf professional, the Proserpine Golf Club is delighted to welcome industry veteran Kane Nusteling to the club.

Kane's tenure as Head Professional at the club officially began on March 19 but the Whitsunday wet season kept him off the course for the first few weeks.

His career in golf speaks for itself having spent four years as the Head Professional at the world renowned Anglesea Golf Club in regional Victoria and three years working at the spiritual home of golf, the prestigious St. Andrews Links course in Scotland.

It has been over a decade since the Proserpine Golf Club have had the luxury of a pro and Club President Alison Day was thrilled to welcome Kane to his new home in the Whitsundays.

"After many years without a pro the club felt that we were in a strong enough financial position to be able to employ someone to help our members improve their game. Kane increases the overall profile of the club and we are very happy to welcome him to the club," Alison said.

"We received over 16 applications for the position and are thrilled to have an experienced and well-qualified professional like Kane be a part of our golfing community."

Kane comes to the club after working as a professional at Pitlochry Golf Club in Scotland where he has been the past 12 months introducing his daughter Taylor to his wife's Scottish parents.

"I flew over from Scotland for the final interview and that was a big risk for me so I'm really happy that I ended up getting the position. There has been lots of work going on at the club and we can now proudly say that nine of our 18 holes will be open all year long regardless of what the weather throws at us," Kane said.

Kane has been hard at work meeting all the club's members and said he was looking forward to getting to know everyone and helping however he can.

Kane will also be running free junior clinics on Tuesday and Friday afternoons at the club that are completely free of charge. Anyone interested in participating should call the club on 4945 1337 or Alison Day on 4948 3393.
