Bob is a retired Bank Manager, a stickler for the rules he ensures that all duties that the Pro Shop staff perform are correct and that we treat our customers like family. He is always there with a smile and all the helpful advice you could ask for. Bob loves his golf, a punt, Rugby League (also a Dragons man), a glass of red and a chat.
Brando is the youngest member of the Pro Shop team and his youth and sense of humour creates a great environment to work in. Brando is a very talented individual, not only on the course, playing off scratch and captaining the Division 1 Pennants side but is an accomplished Ballroom Dancer and if you ask him to juggle he can accommodate you there as well. Brando is a very polite young man and is held in high regard by our members. Brando is also a Dragons supporter.
Gawny is the latest addition to the Pro Shop team. Peter has been a member of the Coffs Harbour Golf Club for almost 30 years. An avid golfer who loves the sport for what it is and the camaraderie of just playing the game, no matter what score you have. Peter is trying to bring some stability to the Pro Shop with constant discussion from all these Dragon supporters and to try and get them over the Monday blues after the weekend footy results with some good news from the Mighty Manly Sea Eagles winning formula. It is a tough road but he is persistent.
