Dunn appointed Tasmanian Development Officer

Golf Tasmania has appointed Therese (Terry) Dunn as its new Development Officer. Dunn commenced her duties on Tuesday 15th February and will head the drive to re-invigorate junior participation in golf within Tasmania. Foremost to the role will be the introduction and growth of the recently rolled out MYGOLF Tasmania program which forms part of the Golf Australia National Junior Framework. Hailing from Brisbane, Terry has a great love and passion for the game of golf. Dunn has played most of her golf at the Brisbane Golf Club where she attained a handicap of 4 and had aspirations to become a professional before a serious injury curtailed her dream. Therese was also Handicap Manager at Brisbane and was involved in the running and management of the clubs junior program. Operating and growing her own business as a professional Sports Coach and Administrator over the past twenty years, Terry has an extensive background in Swimming and Triathlon Coaching, and junior development. These skills provide not only proven business acumen but also extensive abilities in the coaching and development of junior and senior athletes honed over a long period. Therese is very excited about her new role at Golf Tasmania and feels that her experience and knowledge in coaching and junior development will easily transfer across to golf. Dunn is excited to be able to fulfill her ambition to be back and involved in the golf industry, and looks forward to seeing and meeting with the many members and stakeholders across the State.
