General Manager

Born in the UK to an English Mother and Kiwi Father, Simon began his career in agriculture engineering before heading off to university to study horticulture in golf course management.

Simon moved over to NZ in 2002 to fulfil his dream of managing a golf course, while snowboarding as often as possible in his free time. That dream became reality at Terrace Downs for 6.5 years in a challenging environment.

In 2010 he moved to Gulf Harbour Country Club which saw him facing a different climate from Terrace Downs and after 6.5 years moved onto Wainui where he led the conversion of the 18-hole championship course to Couch Fairways in one year. Now living in Army Bay with his wife, Jen, and three kids he’s ready to get cracking on the big changes coming to North Shore.

Lisa thought of herself as the girl that would never play golf. Who has the time to spend the day chasing a little white ball around a paddock?! Lisa’s children, Dion and Trudy, ignited her interest in the game when the two of them started playing golf regularly at a young age.

Lisa heads the North Shore Golf Club’s golf operations team. In a nutshell, she is in charge of all golf administration, from competitions (setup through to results) to the annual programme of golf events and everything in-between.

Bevan grew up in a town called Waimate in the South Island and moved to Auckland in 2000 to work at a driving range in Swanson. When he was about 15 years old, Bevan started playing golf with a neighbour. Living only a kilometre from the course, he got hooked. Bevan would bike to the course every day after school, pulling his trundler along behind him.

Bevan has a background in playing at both the top amateur level and professionally, having played for Aorangi, North Harbour, Huapai Nobilo Pennants. A highlight for him was winning the Auckland Strokeplay Championship in 2004. From 2004-2006 he played in several qualifying schools around the globe being Australia, Asia and Canada. A highlight of Bevan’s short professional career at this stage was finishing 13th in the Fiji PGA Championship.

Bevan offers on-course coaching, shot-making, how to get out of trouble on the course using various shots (which he loves), short game strategy, full swing, and more. Bevan also speaks and can understand the Korean language.

Bevan gets great satisfaction from watching the improvements of those he coaches.
