Peter Weisel - Golf Professional
A life-long athlete, Peter began playing golf when he was in high school in Montclair, New Jersey. He caught the golf bug almost instantly and worked on his game enough to earn All-Conference honors during his senior year, when he played in the New Jersey State Tournament of Champions. Peter moved to the Valley in 2009 to attend Roanoke College where he played on the golf team. After serving as a caddie and intern at the Montclair Golf Club and Ridgewood Country Club (a Golf Digest Top 100 Course in America) in New Jersey, Peter began working at Roanoke Country Club in 2013, where he served as an Assistant Professional and the Junior Golf Coordinator.
Peter's passion for instruction has compelled him to seek out the latest technology and teaching techniques. His desire to provide the best possible instruction to his students has led him to becoming a PGA Apprentice, US Kids Certified Coach, Titleist Performance Institute Level 2 Junior Coach, and a Flatstick Certified Putting Instructor. This past year, the US Kids Foundation recognized Peter's enthusiasm for Junior Golf by naming him a 2016 US Kids Golf Honorable Mention Top 50 Kids Teacher.
As the Regional Junior Golf Coordinator for the Virginia State Golf Association, Peter now has the ability to bring more Junior Golf opportunities to the Roanoke Valley and Southwest Virginia. Peter lives in Roanoke with his wife Kelsea and their Tibetan Terrier named Bagel.
