    About Scott Pickett

    A left-handed golfer, Scott started his golfing journey at the Morrinsville Golf Club, eventually representing Waikato at both a junior and senior level.

    Early achievements include coming runner up in the Waikato Winter Stroke Play, winning the Waikato Stroke Play and winning Waikato’s ‘Golf Champion of Champions’ title, all in 2002.

    In 2003 Scott turned professional under the tutelage of Craig Carrington at the Lochiel Golf Club in Hamilton. Four and a half years later, Scott was appointed head professional at the Te Puke Golf Club in the Bay of Plenty. After a rewarding three-year tenure at Te Puke, Scott was on the move again - this time to New Zealand’s busiest club - the North Shore Golf Club.

    Scott worked as the club’s golf professional for nearly 5 years, before the call of the Bay saw him relocate to Tauranga in 2015, after purchasing the golf business located adjacent the Omanu Golf Club. He’s passionate about golf, outstanding customer service, and ensuring you have a great experience with Golf 360, both online and in-person.
