Belinda Hodson
ALPG Professional
ALPG Professional

My name is Belinda Hodson and I am excited to begin my journey working within the Port Macquarie Golf Club. 

Golf has consumed the majority of my life and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. I was introduced to golf by my older brother Jared when I was 13 years old. I used to caddy for him when he played his junior golf and it didn’t take long before I caught the golfing bug. 

I had a successful junior and amateur career with involvement in both state and national representative teams. I turned professional when I was 21 and played on both ALPG & USA Futures tours with my brother as my caddy! 

Golf has seen me travel to many different parts of the world over the years and I have been fortunate enough to meet some fantastic people along the way. 

I have since had some time away from the game, but have returned to more of a teaching role which I am thoroughly enjoying.
