Edgewood Golf Course has had a huge impact on the lives of thousands of people around the world.
Its online course, GTC, has been rated as one of the most highly recommended courses in the world, with an average of 4.5 stars out of 5.
The course has been viewed by over 4 million people, and its impact on its community is immeasurable.
The Gatlinberg Golf Course was founded in 2009 by Mark and Denise Hunt, who wanted to provide an educational experience for all to enjoy.
It is currently run by a team of three teachers, two golf instructors and a tutor.
In an age when many people spend more time on social media than they do at work, GSC has become a beacon of empowerment for those on the move, and for people living in remote parts of Australia.
In 2017, it was also voted the top rated golf course in the country, and in 2018, it became one of just four Australian courses to win an Australian Open golf tournament.”GTC has been the centrepiece of my life,” Mark Hunt said.
“It was like a dream come true.”
Mark and Denise met while teaching at the University of New South Wales, where Mark worked as a tutor, and Denise, who worked as an instructor.
“We just thought we would get together and work out how we could do something different,” Mark said.
“And we found it was possible.”
Mark decided to set up GTC as an online course for people to enjoy on their own, which was something Denise found really cool.
“I’m not a social media person and I’ve never really been a golf instructor,” Denise said.”[It] has become such a passion for us and it’s a lot of fun to share our passion and we just love it.”
“When we started this we were thinking it would be a little bit like a college course or a weekend golf course,” Mark added.
“But the more we thought about it the more it became a full-time job.”
“It has become our hobby, our lifestyle, our passion.”
Denise and Mark both said that their main motivation to create the course was to make it accessible to as many people as possible.
“For me personally, I was always a huge fan of the golf course and the camaraderie and the friendships that were made,” Denise explained.
“And the learning environment itself has always been great for that, as well.”
The Hunt family said they were inspired by the golf courses of Europe and were looking to recreate the experience.
“When you go to a golf course you have a really nice view of the lake, and you get to see the golfers on the course, so you can really appreciate the scenery,” Denise added.
“But you also feel the love and the pride of being in a place like that.”
A lot of people just come here and get a bit of a break, so we wanted to give them the chance to get back in the swing of things and learn about what it’s like to play golf in the area.””
For us, it’s really about being there and experiencing what it is like to be a part of that community and how they do things.
“The course currently boasts a community of more than 3,000 members.”
And we think that it has really made a positive impact in the community, as people have been able to share their experience and what it means to be part of the community.””
We want people to know that it’s not just about the course and what you can do on the golfcourse, it has a much bigger impact on what happens around the community and the local community.”
“And we think that it has really made a positive impact in the community, as people have been able to share their experience and what it means to be part of the community.”
With over 20 courses worldwide, there is a lot more going on in the online world than just golf.
“There are a lot less courses online now,” Denise joked.
“So it’s been really great to see what the Gatlins have achieved and the impact it has had.”
“If you look at all the courses out there, it doesn’t really matter if it’s online or offline,” Mark explained.
“It’s still the same thing.
You’ve got to go out and play golf.”
