About Franz Rolinck

Franz Rolinck founded Living Golf in 2001 in South Africa. He started playing golf at the age of 12. Franz quickly improved and played at the age of 17 for the German National Junior Golf Team. Over 5 years he represented his country, also in several European Championships. In the same year as Bernhard Langer, Franz was one of the first golfers selected to join the „Sportfördergruppe“, the elite sport organisation of the German Military Forces. A lifelong passion and love for the game of golf was born. Pursuing an international business career in Australia, Germany, France and South Africa, a severe car accident was the wake-up call to slow down. Golf came to the rescue. A miraculous lesson in Sydney taught him a new dimension of the game: to relax and to play golf effortlessly, experiencing flow and joy. To teach this way of life through the tool of golf became Franz‘s vocation. Further training and practical experience in Qi Gong, Kinesiology, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and 25year long meditation practice followed. He has also studied the impact of individual and collective trauma. His work was backed by well-known organisations such as the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews, the world governing body of golf, and the Scottish Government. Franz developed and applied his Living Golf programmes from 2008-2017 in South Africa, and from 2014-2020 in Scotland. In 2021 Franz moved to Germany to launch this work in Germany. Since 2022 Golf is a recognized REHA-Sport in Germany. Franz Rolinck is among the first 12 certified REHA-Golf trainers in Germany.
