Austin helps junior talent

SECOND year trainee Nev Austin is keen to help juniors as the Oxley Driving Range undergoes a rebuilding stage.

However, his work with indentured coach Lee Harrington extends further than “mygolf” programs in Brisbane.

Austin is eager to assist juniors at Sandy Gallop Golf Club.

“As Oxley Driving Range is one of the best facilities for practice within the Brisbane area, I have many members from Ipswich area ranging from juniors to adults come to myself for repairs, clubs and coaching,” Austin said.

“I believe there is a good amount of talent at Sandy Gallop especially in the junior ranks.”

Among the exciting juniors is Austin’s niece Tahlia Condon, who is currently being coached by Harrington.

“I endeavour to bring my coaching to the club on days that I have free to help build the quality of golf within the region,” Austin said.

Austin is also organising a Trainee Pro-Am at Sandy Gallop in May to help after the floods.

Austin is looking for sponsorship for the May 23 event. It will be a shotgun start at noon.

Anyone able to help can contact Austin on 3379 2266. Amateurs keen to play can contact Sandy Gallop on 3281 8544.
