Steve Galapi

Steve Galapi

Steve Galapi has been a PGA member since 1985. He played on the Australasian Tour for 6 years in the early 80's but was no match for Greg Norman, Baker-Finch and the likes. 

He spent 13 years as director of coaching at Yarrambat Park golf course, then 5 years at Bundoora Golf Course. During that time in 2012 he travelled to Sweden to coach an elite golfer, Linda Larsson, who was preparing to play on the LPGA Tour. 

Steve's philosophy is to ‘keep it simple for all golfers’. It’s his job to analyse your swing and give the appropriate information and more importantly, the drills to change your motor pattern. This philosophy has been confirmed by working with elite players and PGA professionals, such as his close friend, Lucien Tinkler, who won the 2016 Seniors Vic Open and shot 10 under par at the Burham Pro-Am against the younger pro’s who bomb their tee shots over 300m. In 2016, we welcomed Steve’s Galapi Golf Academy to Big Swing Golf Kew.

He spent 12 years there, honing his coaching skills reaching a AAA accreditation in 2012.

Roland’s greatest strength is his ability to communicate with all levels of players, from beginner to advanced, on different feels and techniques that will help improve their game.
