BENTHAM Golf Club 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.

Millar 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.

Millar 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 Club as I get to know the area."

Bentham Golf Club is a par 71, 6,033-yard course. The holes offer challenges ranging from long drives to par 3s, with seven ponds among the hazards, including the beautiful signature 10th hole which gobbles up anything short of a length.
