Bentham Golf Course (pictured above) has appointed PGA teaching professional Jamie Millar as their new club pro. The New Zealander will be running all forms of coaching and providing members and guests with valuable advice and tips in the pro-shop.
Jamie was accepted into the 2016 PGA programme and completed his traineeship in 2018 as the 4th ranked trainee in New Zealand. He moved to Australia and competed in the Pro-am circuit before moving to the UK in May 2019 to focus on his coaching, bringing his partner and three-year-old son with him.
Jamie said: “I’m excited to work with everybody to get the most out of their golfing experience. I have big plans for the coaching side of my work here at Bentham and cannot overstate how great it has been to have the support and local knowledge of people everyone at Bentham Golf Course as I get to know the area.
“If you’re ever near the course, don’t hesitate to come and have a chat and ask plenty of questions, or even sneak out for a quick nine holes on our picturesque course – my personal favourite is the view from the 3rd tee; it’s stunning!”
Bentham Golf Course is a challenging family-run course set in an elevated position on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It not only boasts views of the Three Peaks, but Lake District hills and the Forest of Bowland can be seen to the west.
The immaculately tended course over 6,033 yards is a par 71. The holes offer challenges ranging from long drives to par 3s, with seven ponds among the hazards, including the beautiful signature 10th hole which will gobble up anything short of a length.
Guests can also ‘stay and play’ in one of its Wenningdale Escapes lodges or glamping pods nestled amid the fairways.
