Please Give a Warm Welcome to Pete Milner – Lead Assistant Golf Professional at Amelia National

Many of you have likely seen a new face in the Amelia National Golf Shop and around the practice facility over the past few weeks.  We are excited to formally introduce our New Lead Assistant Golf Professional, Peter “Pete” Milner!

Pete started playing Par 3/ Pitch & Putt golf at the age of 7 and quickly developed a love and passion for the game. Despite the rules of golf in Ireland preventing him from playing a regulation course until the age of 11, he rose to highest level in Ireland as one of the youngest champion Pitch & Putt players ever.  He joined Ashbourne Golf Club on his 11th birthday and continued his growth, winning player of the year several years running.  As the accolades piled up, he was thrust into the County and International scene, where he was part of the youngest County Champions team in history, winning all of his matches.

When he turned 18, he knew exactly what he wanted to do; play golf full-time. Since then, he has been growing and developing his game and coaching skills all while trying to play full-time on the Mini-Tours and competing in Monday Qualifiers/Open Events. He had some success winning in Germany on the PGA Circuit and some other smaller events.

Eventually, his focus shifted fully to coaching and using his years of playing experience to help other golfers enjoy the game.  He received a Master Teaching “Class A” and a degree in Sports Science (focusing on spinal and motor control function).  He’s also a Certified Golf Biomechanical Practitioner and has an NLP in Sports Psychology.

“I feel I am well equipped with my knowledge and experience to help any golfer of any level improve and enjoy the game more. I love the mental side of it as it’s what helped me transform my game to the next level.”

We are excited to have Pete join the team here at Amelia National as he continues to share his passion for the game with all of our members and guests.  Welcome, Pete!
