Matthew Dent History
Matthew Dent has been a PGA Member since 1986, finishing his traineeship under Tony Giles at Mt Osmond Golf Course. After years of playing events he secured his first Head Professional position at Mt Lofty Golf Club in 1993, where he stayed for close to 10 years before moving to Blackwood Golf Club. He is currently in his 12th year at Blackwood and is the club’s longest serving Professional.
He has also just recently been re-elected to the SA PGA Committee and is also on the board of On Course Golf.
“One of my proudest achievements in the golf industry is raising over $110,000 for CANTEEN (a charitable organisation supporting young people living with cancer) by running my bi-annual charity golf days. This has been most rewarding and I encourage others to do the same for their favourite charities.” Matthew Dent.
