"You will be pleased to hear that the couple of lessons I had with you after my broken wrist saga have paid off and since my return to golf my handicap has gone from 31 to 27." Lyn Lunn

" I am only a beginner, but already you have taught me so much, and I really appreciated and learned from your sensitive and encouraging teaching style."Julie Crombie

“Virginia's skills as a coach have been evident in watching her work with both private clients and the State team.” November 3, 2011 Peter Knight, Director, Golf Possibilities

I have played golf for about 12 years and in that time I have often asked Virginia to help me with my game either to fine tune things such my swing, or in broader areas such as course management. She always keeps her advice simple and yet it manages to be very effective. My own experience supports my endorsement of Virginia as a very good golf professional for any aspiring golfer.Angela Ramsay

I have had quite a few golf lessons over the last few years; however Virginia Irwin has helped me more than any other coach. She has the real knack of teaching – that is imparting to me the mental picture of how I need to swing the club. She does this using a variety of fun drills. RH. [Indooroopilly Golf Club December 2011]

Virginia Irwin was an elite level golfer herself and over the last 10 years has built a strong reputation for her coaching of male and female players from beginner to elite. Virginia always displays a high level of professionalism in her teaching and keeps instruction simple and to match the abilility of individual players.......... lessons are always a pleasure Lyle Hubinger

Virginia Irwin has been my swing coach for 5 lessons. An 11 marker I have had 3 rounds less than 5 over since Virginia started coaching me. Virginia has not changed anything except swing line & impact position. Sticks to the basics & designs for each player. Glen Bailey IGC.
