Martin Joyce is a AAA PGA member from Melbourne Australia.

After ten years playing amateur golf, having represented Victoria five times and competing in high level amateur tournaments throughout Europe, the USA and Australia, Martin spent three years getting his professional qualification via a PGA traineeship. During his traineeship he was awarded Victorian Trainee of the Year and Australian Golf Digest Trainee of the Year.

In the years to follow he worked in various roles in the golf community including coaching the Victorian Colts team, co-ordinating the Holden Young Lions coaching program and working closely with the South West Academy of Sport while holding down a full time role as the Director of Golf at Spring Valley Golf Course.

Martin established his place in the Spring Valley Community well enough to pursue his goal of attaining the coaching rights and setting up his private coaching business – Martin Joyce Golf Pty Ltd.

Martin advanced from Victorian Colts coach to Victorian State coach in 2008 and led the team to back to back titles in 2008 and 2009. He is still the current Victorian State coach.

In 2009 Martin was awarded the PGA Victorian Teaching Professional of the Year. He also actively participates in the mentoring program for PGA Trainees.

In 2008 Martin took up the position as the head golf coach at the Victorian Institute of Sport. (VIS)

He has also moved the VIS Golf training facility to Spring Valley, where in co-operation with Titleist, a teaching centre was built on the driving range. This has become the base for most of Martin’s coaching work.

With increasing interest an involvement in player development Martin recently took on the role of High Performance Director for Victoria and became Golf Australia National Coach.
