Introducing “The Coach”

GolfHub has taken the initiative of signing a contract with one of the best golf coaches in South Africa to bring our members another value-added service.

Johan Van Vuuren, who we’ve dubbed “The Coach”, will be available for a weekly Q&A session to all GolfHub members. The principle here is that you send your questions and Coach will answer as many as he can in a one hour stretch, this all on live feed directly from Coach to you!

Obviously, Coach can’t answer all your questions so we’ve taken it a step further by having a weekly lesson fix session. You send your swing fault with a video and maybe yours gets selected as the weekly fix!

The 3 Majors on the GolfHub golf day calendar will include Coach giving a small workshop for players beforehand. FREE LESSON PEOPLE!

To access these benefits, simply register as a user at GolfHub. 2min registration process for a lifetime of coaching benefit, that sounds like a fair compromise.

The Coach will also be available for coaching if you are in the Gauteng area. To book the coach out for a session, please email him directly on There is a hugely attractive package that he offers at the GolfTec facility which has the very best golf technology in the industry to give you the absolute best scientific approach as well as personal approach to your lesson. Imagine getting the best technological feedback available in golf using the GolfTec equipment, then combining that with Coach giving you drills to fix these faults right there and then. It simply doesn’t get better than that!

By now you’re wondering about The Coach’s background, well here it is:

My coaching journey started in 2000 with the Jamie Gough Golf Schools in Cape Town, and within two years, I was his busiest teaching pro throughout all his schools in South Africa of which he had 5 at the time, this was the biggest chain of golf school academies in South Africa.

A few years later I joined the Owen Baker Golf School in Centurion where I successfully ran all the beginner, ladies and junior clinics apart from my individual clients. My individual client base grew dramatically which included players like Michiel Bothma, Vaughn Groenewald, Louis de Jager, Shaun Norris and his two brothers Kyle and Alain. After spending 5 years with Owen I was offered an opportunity to go to Woodhill Country Club, this is when I started my own business called Passion for Golf. With golf being my passion from a very young age finding a name that would best describe my passion and dedication to the game was imperative. My business started growing and I became the Head Teaching professional within two years at Woodhill. Although the Woodhill Academy was not very big at the time, through hard work and dedication to my students I was able to grow this into a very successful and well known academy.

The future of the game is definitely with our juniors and this became my focus point over the last couple of years. I was appointed as the Head coach for the Woodhill College Primary and High School teams and after two years there were more than 20 juniors competing to play for the school teams which made it very competitive. My High School team managed to win the school league on more than one occasion and many of the players made their provincial colors in different age categories.

The key for me as a teaching professional is to make golf simpler for people and get them to see results and enjoy the game as much and as soon as possible. For the last 10 years I have been involved with a company called CPT Consulting and we launched a DVD called Monthly Golfer DVD. This DVD is all about educating golfers on all different levels and helping them understand on how they can practice and improve their games looking at drills and info on how they can get the most out of their games. As presenter of these DVD’s I translate the game in a very simple and understanding way to our viewers and the response from the public has been amazing.

DVD’s are available for purchase on the GolfHub Online Store.

Coach, we are thrilled to have you on board. Welcome to the GolfHub family!
