Ben Campbell – Head Professional

Ben Campbell completed his traineeship at Sanctuary Cove Country Club in 2004. After turning professional, he then went to work for some of the most respected coaching academies in Australia. This is where Ben started to develop his passion for coaching and recognising a need for strong mentors that can inspire golfers of all ages and levels. In 2006, Ben left Australia to hone his skills around the world, competing on Australasian and Asian tours and holding key coaching roles throughout Asia and the South Pacific. Returning home, Ben joined the team at Southport Golf Club in 2009 as the Golf Hardware Specialist. In 2012, Ben was appointed Head Teaching Professional.

Ben’s philosophy is that everyone can improve their golf:

“I build on good fundamentals and swing technique without trying to mould a specific model. We are all individuals and have our own swing. At the end of the day, it’s all about performance on the course and enjoying your golf. I help each individual to build confidence and assist in identifying how your strengths and weaknesses can be used to enhance your performance”.
