My name is Geoff Saayman, and I am fanatical about golf. In the truest sense of the word…! Just ask anyone who knows me!

I first joined a golf club in the late 1990’s and managed to get my handicap down to single figures within 3 years. As you might imagine, that entailed some serious passion and dedication. I’ve been known to spend entire vacations playing 36 holes a day, every day… sadly, some of my (ex) friends just didn’t understand that when I said I was going on vacation to play golf, I meant exactly that!

When my family and I moved from South Africa to Switzerland in 2001 I wanted to use the opportunity to move into the professional golf world. At the time I was considered too old to start a PGA Teachers Training couse, so I did the next best thing & started working in a golf store, the largest golf group in Switzerland. During my 3 years there, I learned a lot about golf equipment and completed a club fitting course in 2004. I also made many friends and have a support base of golfers throughout Switzerland and Germany.

I have since been able to take my first steps into the professional golf world and have completed my assistant professional diploma with the German PGA and am currently employed and giving lessons at Golfpark Waldkirch which is just outside of St Gallen toward Zurich. I really get a kick out of helping people get the very best out of their game.

My most memorable moments in golf thus far – I met Ernie Els at Leopard Creek Golf Course in South Africa … and I achieved a hole in one on a 193 metre par 3 in Waldkirch Golf Club, Switzerland!
