Peter Zellmer, Head Golf Professional

A Class A PGA Professional since 2006, Peter comes to Wedgewood after six years as the lead assistant under Bill Stines at nearby Scioto Country Club. Peter is excited for the 2015 golf season at Wedgwood Golf & Country Club and is eager to meet all of the Wedgewood Members over the coming months!
 
Peter is responsible for tournament operations, junior golf, club fittings and daily golf shop and merchandising practices. When not busy with day-to-day programs and operations, he can often be found on the lesson tee teaching to men, women, and junior players. Peter ultimately made the decision to become a PGA Professional due to his passion for the game of golf, his desire to succeed within the golf industry, and most importantly, his passion for teaching the game to others. He feels strongly that introducing and growing the game of golf is the most important thing a PGA Professional has the privilege to do.
 
The son of Dr. Jim and Elayne Zellmer, Peter was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, before moving to Paducah, Kentucky, at a young age. He has a twin brother Edward, a younger brother James, and a younger sister, Mary Catherine. Peter married Elizabeth Semder in March of 2012 and they have a young son named Cameron. Peter is excited to teach Cameron the game of golf, but first things first - he must learn to stand up!
