Pinpoint – Premium Golfing Experiences

New Zealand’s only Tour Pro golf guides

Pinpoint Premium Golfing Experiences was developed to service golfers of all abilities coming to play in New Zealand. With limited caddying services available throughout the country, international visitors often find themselves struggling to adapt to the many variables they face while playing in NZ.

At Pinpoint, we aim to bridge that gap by drawing upon our experience as tour professionals. We provide a first class service that utilises our skills to enhance the enjoyment of the guests’ experience. We apply the same considerations we would make ourselves as Tour Pros and simplify it down for the client in just a few words, only giving them the information they need. This allows the client to get out of his or her own way on the course and play freely. Something all golfers desire to do, but seldom understand how to.

We keep our offering very flexible so our guides can be used in a number of ways, from a pure caddying service to a Pro Am style approach, from helpful tips and tuition to shot advice and green reading.

“My family and I enjoyed a round of golf at Wairakei International playing with our Pinpoint guide. We all throughly enjoyed the interaction, guidance and banter that came with it. Playing with Mat lifts everyone else’s game up to a new level, he shows you not only how to play a certain hole or shot, but how to construct an entire round. We got a lot out of the experience and the pleasure of seeing how good a Golfer Mat is, we will do it again.”

Hamish Whyte, CEO Resero Group, New Zealand

“Mathew has hosted many small to medium sized golf events for very important customers of mine. He quickly established rapport with my guests, regardless of their golfing ability, age or experience, and created an enjoyable and relaxing environment. His golfing skills as both a player and guide are outstanding and his style of offering just a private word or two of advice without embarrassing anyone is a tremendous attribute. I would highly recommend his services to anyone wishing to enjoy a round or two with a knowledgeable and accomplished professional.”

Neil Spencer, Executive GM Crown Casino, Melbourne

 Mat has a huge amount of knowledge and experience within the game of golf, and shows how the game is played and dealt with in a professional way. Apart from much fun playing with a quality Professional like Mat, we also learned a lot from him on and off the course.  I would highly recommend Mat and his Professional service, which is highly memorable and enjoyable.”

Ella Wang, COO Prient Corporation, Beijing

“Along with two friends I had the good fortune to be paired with Mat in a recent pro-am. Afterwards we all remarked on what a great day we’d had, and that was mainly down to the quality of our professional partner. Not only was he there to keep us on the straight and narrow with some great tips, but he also really brought us together as a team, making for the ultimate pro-am experience. Mat set a great example as to how a professional can add so much to a successful pro-am.”

Michael Glading, Tournament Director, New Zealand Open

Director and Golf Guide

Our Director Mat has a wealth of golfing experience having represented NZ since 2009. A former New Zealand Amateur Champion and Eisenhower Trophy rep. He has played in over 25 countries during his career and spent the past seven years playing professionally in Asia and Europe. Having lived in Melbourne since turning Pro, Mat quickly found success in partnering with Crown Casino in a VIP hosting role, guiding guests around its private course.

Mat has a great passion for sharing his golfing knowledge and helping others realise their potential whilst playing this great game. Mat set up Pinpoint earlier in the year after the birth of his first child brought him and his wife back to Kiwi shores. Now based in Hawkes Bay, Mat enjoys having the opportunity of showcasing his homeland to golfers of all backgrounds and abilities.
