Balderstone Sports Institute bid farewell to staff member
BSI Golf Coach Coenie Stoop is leaving the academy staff after more than 6 years of service, as he and his wife Michelle are emigrating to Perth, Australia. Coenie has been part of the BSI family since enrolling as a student for the PGA Diploma in 2009. He won our Premier Order of Merit in each of his 3 years as a student and gained his Sunshine Tour card whilst still a student.
After 5 years on tour, he returned to BSI as a coach in 2016. In his time with us as a coach he guided 3 students to win our Premier Order of Merit and 3 students to win our Junior Order of Merit. In addition, he has guided many dozens of students to great improvements in their golf and most importantly has helped to develop them as people. We wish Coenie and Michelle much future success, health and happiness in their new adventure, and thank Coenie for his service and contribution. We look forward to hearing about his adventures down under.
