Director of Instruction
Mike Rothera has been a member of the PGA since 2001.  While working at in all facets of the golf business, he has focused his attention on coaching and teaching golf at Pinehills for over 15 years.  
Michael's philosophy is simple, "provide a service that will improve the students knowledge of the game in a fun and relaxed atmosphere."   He creates a plan for his students with a blend of technology and basic fundamentals to make the learning process enjoyable.  He believes that there is not one method to swing the club and will work hard to find each individuals path.  This will be achieved by measuring each student to find each individuals biomechanical way to swing the club.  
While coaching golfers of all abilities, Michael continues building relationships within the community and providing programs for everyone.  Michael's mission for growing the game through junior programs has been a strong focus and continues drives his passion for teaching.

Andrew Gildea

Golf Professional

Andrew started playing golf at 4 years old and has not put the club down for the last 28 years. He has worked as a professional golf coach for the last 11 years in both the U.S. and abroad and has given thousands of hours of lessons to students ranging from absolute beginners to aspiring tour professionals. 


Andrew understands that the game means different things to different people, but everyone who comes to take a lesson has the same goal: Make the game more enjoyable through improvement. Whether you’d like a quick fix or a long-term development plan, Andrew has the know-how to help you achieve your goals - and enjoy the process!

Andrew is technologically savvy and loves employing the newest tech in his lessons. However, he himself would undoubtedly be described as a “feel” player and knows the benefits of stepping away from screens and focusing on the process. 


Solid fundamentals are the best path towards a more consistent swing. Consistent swings are the best path towards reliable outcomes. Reliable outcomes are the best path towards lower scores. Let’s do this!
