Bridge Pa’s NZPGA Qualified Golf Professionals

Brett Allan

Head Professional

Brett has spent time learning his trade in New Zealand, England and Canada. He started his PGA traineeship in 2006 and came to Hastings from Peninsula Golf Club, Auckland.

As a golf professional Brett enjoys spending time on the range assisting golfers in making the correct investment when it comes to new clubs. Not everyone is the same, nor do they swing the same. It is imperative that when thinking about investing in new clubs you come and talk to us so we can advise you of the best set composition for your game. Brett has invested time in learning to use Flightscope, BodiTrak along with high speed camera technology to best benefit his clients. The latest addition to his arsenal of teaching technology is a pressure plate for you to stand on whilst learning what your body does during the golf swing.

A regular competitor in PGA Pro-Am events and attendee of training workshops Brett always has his finger on the pulse of what is new and current. Brett has held a role on the board of Hawkes Bay Golf and PBW Inc., in which he was enjoyed being of service to golfers of the region and instrumental in the growth of the game.

Feel free to contact me at SpecialTee Golf for any coaching or fitting bookings and I look forward to watching your handicap drop with the use of state of the art technology.

I neglected my game for 15 years, putting golf in the too hard basket. Then a friend encouraged me to give it one last shot, but said, “go and have a lesson”.  I found Brett Allan, Head Professional at Hastings Golf Club, and thought he must be good with a title like that! I booked in a series of 5 lessons along 9 holes with Brett. Not thinking too much about it, I went to my first lesson where Brett didn’t judge me on how poorly I was hitting, but rather encouraging me by telling me how well I was doing. I came home and told my wife that I am better at golf that I thought! In 5 lessons Brett brought the fun back into the game for me. Then to play 9 holes with Brett was amazing, seeing how good I might be one day! I am so grateful to Brett for teaching me to just enjoy the game and not worry about others. I’m completely hooked again.
