Hi my name is Andrew McNair, I’m the owner and head Golf Professional here at Sharpies Hastings. I’m originally from Tauranga and played representative golf for BOP at Junior and senior level as well as for Wellington at senior level.
I undertook my PGA training at the Palmerston North and Manawatu Golf Club’s under the wing of highly respected coach Andre White. I learned massive amounts from Andre which culminated in receiving the prestigious PGA Trainee of the Year award in 2006. After a brief stint in Australia playing the PGA circuit, the opportunity arose here at Sharpies and I haven’t looked back.
The Hawke’s Bay is a wonderful place with great people and I have a lot to offer golfers of all levels from my 20 years of experience in golf and from the specialized techniques used to improve both the physical and mental aspects of your game. Download a golf coaching brochure >>.
