we are excited to announce thAT Tijana Kraljevic has been appointed as the new Head Coach

She will be taking care of your golfing journey, alongside EOGA’s Founder and Director of Instruction, Etienne Olivier.

Tijana has been involved with golf, in one way or another, for almost all her life. Inspired at the tender age of 8yrs old by her older brother, Tijana took up the game by becoming a member at Cape Town’s very own Westlake Golf Club.

Her golfing career blossomed from there, seeing her finish 2nd in the Gauteng Jnr Champs at Irene & in the top 5 Juniors in SA. In 2008, at only 17yrs of age, this rising star went on to win both the Limpopo Open AND the Serbian Amateur Open (Europe), leading to her decision to turn Pro & head to Europe when she turned 18.

After multiple tours across Sweden (Nordea), Spain (Banesto) and France (le Generali Ladies), she elected to finish the year off at Golf du Soleil in Morocco, assisting the PGA Pro Jean-Paul Oudin and beginning her coaching journey. Tijana received fantastic training afforded under the guidance of Jean-Paul and had the opportunity to coach using a Pro Tee Simulator, thus began her journey towards adopting coaching methodologies that focus on the use of technology to asses, correct & enhance performance.


Following her time in Morocco, Tijana taught in Asia at the Chao-yang Golf Academy in Beijing, China, where she worked with many diverse golfers, giving her an even greater foundation of coaching to grow on. However, it wasn’t long before the call of the Pro Circuit was too strong to ignore, and Tijana returned to South Africa to play full-time on the Sunshine Ladies Tour.

Her time on the Tour saw her learning from the legendary Hendrik Buhrmann and working closely with Allan Rimmel, who directed a focus towards the mental aspect of the game & inspired her to expand her ever-growing range of coaching skills.

Tijana has been coaching with EOGA since March 2021, based at Killarney Country Club in Johannesburg

And over the past 16 months she has gained incredible experience under the mentorship of Etienne.
Tijana’s skill-set is particulary strong in the focuses of technology-driven sessions, course management training and individual instruction, which is why we believe that she will be a fantastic fit here.

We’re so excited to welcome Tijana to The Met community and we look forward to you all meeting her & benefiting from her wide range of skills.
Tijana is officially in the Studio from 20th July, and bookings for her diary will be open from 1st of July. We can’t wait to see you soon!
