Meet the Penrith Pro Shop Team
Head Golf Professional : Jonathan Green P.G.A
Jonathan started his golfing life as a Penrith Golf Club Junior Member, moving on to begin an apprenticeship in 1981 under former Penrith Golf Club Head Professional Graeme Abbott, completing his time in 1983.
Taking over the reigns of Head Golf Professional from Graeme Abbott in 1991 Jonathan has made the Pro Shop the number one destination for all of Penrith’s golfing needs, providing a friendly and cost saving experience for every member and social player to enjoy when visiting the Pro Shop at Penrith Golf Club.
As well as dedicating his time to various charity causes including The Great Walk Foundation,which has now raised over $1,000,000 for local charities in the Penrith area, Jonathan devotes his time to helping the club, whether it be organising golf events, raising funds for charity or hosting the club’s Presentation Night’s (has been known to bust out a karaoke tune or two when on the mic at these events).
Assistant Golf Professional: Anthony Gomez P.G.A
Another local Junior Member who has been at the club for many years. Starting a Traineeship under Jonathan in 2000, Anthony completed his traineeship in 2003 finishing as one of the top trainee golfers in the country. Culminating in a start at the 2003 Australian PGA Championship (one of only 2 trainees in the country to make the cut) and receive his first “significant pay day” as a Professional golfer.
Anthony spent the next few years playing tournament golf around Australia and the Pacific, with many good results such as: T5th 2004 Vanuatu Open, T4th 2005 Vanuatu Open and many more wins on the Australian Pro Am circuit. However, following an injury in 2006 Anthony headed back into the Pro Shop to become Jonathan’s assistant.
Focusing on Junior Development, Anthony has spent over 10 years teaching our cadet and Junior programs and regularly manages our Junior Representative teams. Providing a friendly atmosphere for all ages when they visit the Pro Shop.
Shop Manager: Raymond Foster
Also a local Junior, Raymond has been an institution in the shop for more than 20 years. Using this vast experience in the industry, Raymond can help, and regularly does help members and social players with everything from swing tips to club repair and even offers a sympathetic ear to the many woes we all suffer at the hands of the “Golfing Gods”.
Raymond started his golf representing Penrith at Junior level and has also represented the club at Major Pennant level, proving his worth as a very accomplished golfer and has become one of the most important members of the Penrith Golf Club Team.
