Peter Whiteford

Former European tour golfer, Peter Whiteford will be joining Calum’s team in February and looks forward to starting his new career at Linlithgow Golf Club.

After a two year stint in America on a golfing scholarship, Peter turned Professional in 2002. Peter had two wins on the EuroPro tour and earned promotion to the European Challenge Tour in 2004. After four years of learning his trade and three wins he secured his European Tour Card in 2008.

Peter enjoyed a successful career on the tour until loosing his card at the end of the 2014 season and returning to the Challenge tour.
Unfortunately, injury has cut his playing career short however at the age of 37 he is eager to get going again and pass down some of his knowledge and learn the trade from outside of the ropes.

“As a player I had the time of my life. There is no real secret to success, like in any job it comes down to hard work and dedication. Also regardless of age or level, the most important thing is to have fun”.
