ABOUT KIERAN MCMAHON
As a AAA rated PGA member Kieran has managed the golf operations at Eastlake, Dubbo and Nelson Bay Golf Clubs.
In the late 90’s Kieran managed several Nevada Bobs Golf Stores including the Charlestown, Brookvale and Waverley stores. He was instrumental in setting up the popular in store Golf Clinics which other large retail chains have copied and still embrace to this day.
In the past 10 years Kieran has owned and operated the Cessnock and Branxton proshops as well as expanding the ever popular & Hunter Valley Aqua Golf Putt Putt.
During his earlier years as a Golf Professional Kieran had some success playing the NSW Pro-Am curcuit. One of his more notable results was a top ten finish at the Lightning Ridge Pro-Am. He still has players call in to the Hunter from this era and remind him of the impression he made on them and their golf! A golf excursion to the 2006 British Open saw Kieran reach qualifying stage in Ireland only to let Tiger Woods off the hook by the time play started at Royal Liverpool.
It is however Kieran’s passion for coaching that has prospered in recent years with the successful Hunter Valley Golf Schools held at Cypress Lakes Resort. Teaching visitors to the resort, many of whom are trying golf for the first time, is an environment Kieran thrives in.
His work with The Hunter Academy of Sport throughout 2007-2010 saw him receive the Chairman’s Award for his dedication to junior golfers in the Hunter Valley.
In 2011 Kieran was selected by the PGA amongst only a handful of other golf professionals to coach visitors from all over the world at The Presidents Cup being held at Royal Melbourne.
Kieran continues to engage with many schools from primary to secondary level overseeing up to 200 junior golfers each week!
