Conveniently located less than 800m from the heart of Kew Junction, the Kew venue is the perfect place for a quick practice session, a relaxed round with friends, or to host a work or social function.
Casual players are welcome to order in food from local take away outlets or online delivery services. Professional catering is available for private and corporate functions as well as fundraisers.

No long-term commitment - just play when you can! There’s a $5 entry fee* plus the standard simulator hire fee (for however long it takes you to play the comp).

We offer single lessons, group clinics and multi-lesson packages for beginners, ladies, kids – everybody! The Kew team has 1 full-time coach (Steve Galapi) and 2 part-time PGA of Australia coaches 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 welcome Steve’s Galapi Golf Academy to Big Swing Golf Kew.
Roland Baglin is one of the owners 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 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.
