In that time she worked “with a variety of golfers ranging from complete beginners who had never picked up a club” and junior programs to higher performers “from all around the world”.

Michie said she was looking forward to rekindling her connection with the region she knows and loves.

“I’m really looking forward to locating back to the beautiful countryside, everyone is really lovely and friendly and very supportive,” Michie said.

“I’m interested to start working with the clients I’ve had before and new clients, whether they’re complete beginners or already on a single figure handicap and wanting to take their golf to the next level.

“I’m also looking forward to working with juniors again, I’ll be offering junior clinics when I’m back up and running.”

Based out of East Deep Creek, the former Australian Ladies Tour competitor will primarily use “Opti Shot 2 simulator software”, along with designated spaces for pitching, chipping bunkers and putting.

“Basically you hit a golf ball into a net, but the screen then shows you the ball’s flight and where your shot is tracking,” she said of the software.

“It’s the latest technology. You can play rounds of golf on it as well, and use it as a driving range.”
