About Us

EMMA BEAUCLERC – golfOZ DIRECTOR Formerly a Greg Norman Junior golf foundation Girl champion, Emma has had 18 years experience within the golfing industry. From working at many of the top Gold Coast resort courses as golf cart staff, golf & sport administrator, organizing corporate golf days to coordinating golfing & sporting adventure tours for the past 16 years. Emma knows the golfing industry inside out. She currently plays off a 15 handicap and that’s with a 1 x game per year – she blames the kids for taking up too much time. Emma loves to punt (owns a couple of horses), talk footy AFL & NRL (the Roosters are her favourite), plays touch footy, competitive netball, boxes , loves boot camp classes, and any other sport she can get her hands on. On top of that plays wife to GB (see below), mum to Chloe (9) and Sam (6), 3 x cats and a dog, so life if very hectic, yet fulfilling.

 

GLENN BEAUCLERC – golfOZ DIRECTOR A Qualified Greenkeeper / former Golf Course Superintendent at Robina Woods, Glenn knows everything his wife Emma doesn’t know about golf courses. Having been a greenkeeper for 25 years and working at some of the finest course – Royal Pines and The Grand, while also being involved in the preparation of these courses for the tournaments of: Royal Pines Ladies Masters and The Australian Open at the Grand in 2000.
When he’s not out working at one of the top Gold Coast Resort courses, or mowing his own home lawn, Glenn loves to punt, fish, go crabbing and watch his beloved South Sydney Bunnies. Otherwise with horses, be warned he will probably try to sell you a share in a thoroughbred he is currently racing or breeding.

AL BRAIN – golfOZ OPERATIONS Our main pain in the butt driver – the one that everyone loves – Big Al. Would sell ice to Eskimo’s – god he can talk. Al has been driving with golfOZ since Emma had Chloe and is a big part of the team.
Al loves talking, knows the Gold Coast inside out, is a country boy from Finley and can chat on all levels about sport, politics, general gossip etc. Al doesn’t play golf that regularly however that may change since as he finally had both hips done and 1 x knee reconstructed. Al loves his footy – preferably AFL, and is a hands on hubby at home – the house reno king in between driving the golf groups around while still happily married to wife Susan, daughter Willow(7) and son Rowdy (4).

SAM ANDERSON – golfOZ OPERATIONS – CONTRACTED DRIVER Our newest driver Sam, is shared between us and Royal Pines, so don’t get confused if he has the wrong name badge on for the day or you see him working the proshop. Sam, originally from Parkdale Melbourne has been on the Goldie since 2010 and currently lives at home with his mum, dad & 2 x brothers and his black Labrador dog “Molly”. Sam is a NRL Cowboy supporter and AFL Carlton fan, but most of all loves the beach, golf & the gym.
