Introducing

Our Head Coach, Daniel Materazzo runs Effortless Golf located at Clifton Springs Golf Club. His services include but are not limited to golf lessons, junior golf lessons, on course lessons, clinics, club fitting, repairs and more. Golf Lessons are the quickest way to limit your bad shots and start repeating your good ones. Dan’s strengths include communication and being able to take a complex golf swing and break it down into simple easy-to-do movements that can be repeated time and time again reducing your handicap and most importantly enjoying your golf.

30 seconds with Dan Materazzo

Over the past 14+ years I’ve been privileged enough to work in the golf industry as a PGA Professional and develop relationships and various skills at three different Golf Clubs. I completed a Traineeship under Tony Cavanagh at Torquay Golf Club working there for five years, moved to Queens Park as an Assistant Professional for seven years and I’m now based at Clifton Springs Golf Club as a full time Teaching Professional. I love challenging myself, I’m very competitive as anybody who’s played golf with me would know and have competed in tournaments around the world at Vanuatu, Samoa and Dubai to name a few. When I’m not teaching or playing golf, my time is spent with my beautiful wife Tash and three children.

Dan's Coaching Philosophy

My simple process-orientated coaching technique is individualised to every student that I’m privileged to work with. I believe one of my greatest strengths is communication and breaking down what can be known as a complex movement into a simple 1, 2, 3 process that can be repeated over and over again to produce results.

I’m also passionate about providing education and awareness so the Golfer can ultimately self-assess and self-correct whilst out on the course, providing maximum enjoyment for the game we all love.

Our recently renovated Pro Shop is one of the biggest around. Enjoy a beer with mates while playing 9 holes in the Pro Shop’s indoor golf simulator or sit back and relax with a coffee or beer in hand while you take in the view out across the 18th green, Corio Bay and You Yangs. We are also proud to stock some of golf’s leading clothing and equipment brands to ensure you hit the fairways in style.
