Peter is a Golf Channel Academy lead instructor at the Golf Channel Academy with Kelley Brooke’s Bethpage Golf Course location in Farmingdale, N.Y. A native Long Islander, Peter has been teaching golf for 20 years, working alongside and learning from some of the game’s best coaches, including noted short game specialist Dave Pelz and World Golf Teachers Hall of Famer Jim Flick.

Peter’s love for coaching began as an assistant at the Dave Pelz Scoring Game School in Boca Raton, Fla., where he attended college at Lynn University. After two years as an assistant with Pelz, he went onto teach at the Nicklaus-Flick Golf Schools in Cypress Creek, Fla., before returning home to Long Island in 2002 and opening up the Peter Stern Golf Academy.

Among his many professional accomplishments include being named a Top 5 Golf Instructor by New York Golfing Magazine. A certified club fitter, Peter has also appeared as a featured instructor on ESPN Radio and XM Radio and in Newsday and Long Island Golf News.
