The Big Swing Golf Kew Academy offers single lessons, group clinics and multi-lesson packages for beginners, experienced, ladies, kids – everybody! The Kew Academy team has 3 PGA of Australia certified coaches (Roland Baglin, Steve Galapi and Mark Varela) who hold individual lessons and clinics during the day and evenings. Price guide: $66 per half hour for adults or $44 for juniors (15 and under); $121 per hour for adults or $80 for juniors. Lesson packages also available at discounted rates.
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.

Roland Baglin is one of the managing partners of the Drummond Golf and Big Swing Golf Kew franchises, taking over the business in September 2014.
He has been a member of the PGA of Australia since 1996. A former Kew Golf Club champion (1994 and 1996) and Boroondara Cup winner (1996), he played the Australian and South Pacific tours from 1996 to 2000 before becoming an assistant professional at Latrobe Golf Club. 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.
Originally from Western Australia, Mark played most of his golf at the Joondalup Country Club. Prior to turning professional in 2012, his amateur career was highlighted by successfully making 6 state teams and competing on the international stage, including the Junior World Championships at Torrey Pines.
Mark spent 3 years playing professional golf, predominately in Asia and Australia. In 2015 he moved to Melbourne and completed his PGA of Australia certification. Since then he has coached players of all levels, developing programs for juniors, ladies and men.
Introducing the game to newcomers and young juniors is always Mark’s top priority, as he believes everyone deserves to experience the great game we call golf.
