Noel Faizal is an all round golf professional who has gone through most of the areas of the golfing industry. He started from the golf course management from looking after the course maintenance and the running of day to day operations of the course (marshalling and golf registration).
In 2001 Noel became the assistant coach to Mr. Shane, Wilding founder of Wildinggolf Academy at the Kiara Driving Range and Glenmarie Driving Range and received a sponsorship to take the AMGTF (American Golf Teachers Federation) Teaching card in Thailand. He cruised through the playing ability test (2 days score of 160) and officially came home to Malaysia and started getting paid for lessons. 2002, Mr. Shane Wilding offered Noel to setup Wildinggolf in Singapore’s Keppel Golf Club and Warren Golf and Country Club. Noel took the opportunity to widen his experience.
Being in Singapore, Noel was exposed to golf equipment sales through Wildinggolf’s counterparts, Grand Bigwin Pte. Ltd. He took a serious interest in equipment sales and became the co-owner of Grand Bigwin Malaysia.
In 2004 he managed to obtain the sole distribution of “Nickent”. Nickent drivers became a big hit in Malaysia reaching its sales target of over USD$250,000 for the year. Noel found his way back into teaching in 2006 when his younger brother, Anis Helmi Abu Hassan was chosen to play for Selangor at the 2006 SUKMA Kedah games. Anis won an individual gold medal for Selangor State.
After being based at Kota Permai Golf Academy throughout 2007 and 2008, his old coach and mentor, Mr. Shane Wilding offered him to help setup a retail area and teach at Wilding Golf Performance Centres in Bangkok. This became the best experience for him because it was all about teaching and fitting in an indoor environment. Noel learned to adapt and managed to help make Wildinggolf Retail centre the best PING outlet for 1st half of 2009 reaching a sales target of Thai Baht 3 million (USD$200,000). Wildinggolf PC became a renowned establishment and manage to secure teaching some of Thailand’s young professionals from the Singha organisation. Noel had a chance to work with some of them.
In January 2012, Noel came back to Malaysia to teach beginners, leisure amateurs, tournament amateurs and golf professionals
