Brodie begins Icelandic adventure


Greg Brodie beat off stiff competition from more than 40 applicants from 32 countries to become the new national coach of Iceland.

In this role as sports director, Brodie will be responsible for golf in the country at all levels, from coach education and growing the game, to female participation and elite level, including the Olympics and World Championships.

The 44 year old, who is based at Foxhills Country Club & Resort, is one of the only few coaches to have the UKCC ASQ Level 4 certification. He currently heads up the Surrey County boys under-16 squad and is a coach at Reed’s School, a high performance school programme.

“I am truly honoured and privileged to have been given this opportunity and my intent is to build something very special,” said Brodie.

“Firstly, we need to have a close look at the culture and performance systems to build some strong foundations for future success. I feel the level four qualification and my PGA education and journey has really come to life with the challenges that this role creates. The Icelandic people are very special and I am blessed to be here.”
