Stacey has played golf from the age of 4 years old following in her fathers footsteps developing a love for the game, she then moved on to become an Auckland representative and at a club level played both Mens and Womens pennants teams and won club multiple championships.
After completing her diploma in Athlete development (for golf) Stacey then left NZ at age 18 Stacey travelled over to the USA and spent some time teaching juniors at one of the summer camps where her program had the most participation the camp had seen in many years. It was her love of the sport and passion for people that achieved this, with many children attending her sessions at every opportunity. Stacey returned home after that and did not pursue her golf at university in the states. with no pathway in NZ as a female elite golfer Stacey stopped playing for a number of years.
During a spell away from the game Stacey was raising two children, and pursed a successful career as a Real Estate agent and Outdoor Education. Returning to the game this time much older and wanting to give back to the game that she grew up in and loved so much Stacey decided to drive forward and not just coach but also pursue her traineeship with the NZPGA So that she can be the best coach she can be. Stacey wants to give new players the opportunity to discover passion for the game and develop themselves both as a player and as people. Stacey has had extensive experience and knowledge in working with young people, she has an open honest and positive approach and believes everyone should have the opportunity to play and achieve at their own level.
