Professional Staff


Mark Paterson- Head Professional

Mark Paterson has been Head Professional at Avondale Golf Club since February 1988 – he was a young 27 year old who originally came from Newcastle.
Over his many years at Avondale Mark has become a certified club fitter of Ping, Titleist, Callaway and Mizuno. Mark’s passion for golf and teaching is evident when just teaching and improving the average club member, his development of local juniors now sees him teach former Eisenhower Cup winner and Australasian Tour Professional Harrison Endycott. His philosophy is to keep things simple but interesting, to challenge your ability but most of all make your golf enjoyable.
Mark sat on the NSW State PGA board for 8 years where he served as Vice-Chairman for a 3 year term, he feels it’s important to give back to something you are passionate about. In 2010 Mark was awarded the “NSW PGA Professional of the Year” by his fellow peers which he holds in high esteem.


Ben Paterson- Assistant Professional

Having first joined Avondale Golf Club as a junior member in 2001, Ben soon came to realise his passion for golf. Over the past ten years Ben has worked as a key member of the pro shop team and in this time has gained extensive experience in teaching and club fitting. Ben is passionate about tailoring his teaching to the specific needs of his clients and does this by incorporating his knowledge of how the body works and moves into lessons. Ben is a certified Ping and Mizuno fitter and through his work with the body is able to offer fittings designed to suit the strengths and challenges of your individual physical and golfing needs.

Why get custom fitted?

Custom fitting your clubs can be compared to having a suit made. How many individuals would have the same waist, chest, arm length, neck, body and inside leg measurements? The same can be said for golf club specifications.
Before we go any further I will say that custom fitted clubs are of maximum benefit to golfers who have a consistent swing. It doesn’t need to be consistently good, just consistent. With every fit we ask a number of questions to develop a profile of the individual. This helps us to ensure that we establish not only the correct specifications for each club, but also that the correct clubs are selected to complete your set.
