Where the Passion Begins


Although born and raised in Cape Town, Lana’s golfing career began in Europe where she became the No 1 amateur in Belgium and enjoyed a successful period as a professional on the Ladies European Tour. Lana switched full time to a coaching career over 20 years ago allowing her to match her wealth of experience gained in tournament play with her natural flair to teach golf. She has taught with distinction throughout the years as a member of the South African Women’s PGA.

Head Professional/ Owner



Paul learned to play golf as a teenager at Rondebosch Golf Club whilst at Rondebosch Boys High School.

Turning professional at the age of 25, he first gained his PGA Diploma and is now an AAA class PGA Professional. Paul has previously taught as an Assistant Coach the Golf Village in Kenilworth within the Jamie Gough Academy, Royal Cape Golf Club and Rondebosch Golf Club. His experience in coaching golf for over 15 years has quickly proved to be very successful at the Pure Motion Golf Academy where his aims are to coach the individual and avoid stereotyping.

Head Professional



After representing both his school in Worcester and Boland at cricket, hockey, tennis and golf, Johan decided to pursue a career in coaching golf. He embarked on a three year PGA course. Having completed his PGA Diploma, Johan joined Pure Motion Golf Academy at Durbanville Golf Club where he has since also taken on the role of Pro Shop Supervisor. He has a calm, patient approach to coaching his clients.

Teaching Professional



Matthew learned his golf at Durbanville Golf Club aged just seven and although playing several other sports whilst at Fairmont High School, golf remained his passion. He was a key member of Durbanville Golf Club’s victorious team in both the Western Province Premier League and the Bradshaw Cup in 2017. Unfortunately an ongoing injury curtailed his hopes of a full time career as a player. Keen to commit himself to golf, Matthew successfully completed his PGA Diploma, which included a six month stint in the Pro Shop at Durbanville Golf Club. He leapt at the chance to coach when offered the opportunity at Pure Motion Golf Academy. He has quickly settled in with his Junior clients, both beginners and those who are already under way, as well as a growing list of golfers of all ages.

Teaching Professional


Nic gained his degree in Sport Science at Stellenbosch University in 2014, completing his Honours in Psychology in 2015. In 2016 he completed a Sport Psychology course by Dr Pat Cohn (USA) under the guidance of Iain Shippey (RSA) and holds a Master’s in Psychology through the University of Roehampton (UK). Now a qualified Sport Psychologist and registered at the Council for Counsellors South Africa, Nic is the director of EQuip Group and the mental consultant to both WP youth and women’s cricket. His clients, on whom he can focus on his passion for psychology, rehab and performance enhancement, include some of the Province’s best cricketers, golfers, rugby and squash players. Rondebosch Boys High school, Bishops Preparatory school, Western Province Cricket and now Pure Motion Golf Academy have all benefited from his successful EQ programmes and mentorship which continue to fill a huge gap in the lives of young athletes.
