LESSONS WITH OUR GOLF PROFESSIONAL
PGA Professional Erik Tiele has been the head golf professional at Waubeeka Golf Links a total of 14 years under two different owners. Born in Philadelphia, PA and raised in Belchertown, MA, Tiele was a standout high school player until a severe automobile accident in 1987 curtailed his golfing career. After several reconstructive surgeries, gastro and hip surgeries and a whole lot of rehab, Tiele has reemerged and his career taken off, his most recent success came in 2019 winning the NENY Sectional qualifier and a spot in the Senior National Championship in Austin, TX. Tiele was a student of the infamous consummate golf professional Rick Pohle, who gave him his first assistants job here in Williamstown at the Taconic Golf Club, where most of his energies were devoted to teaching and coaching the Mt. Greylock HS Golf Team. Tiele also worked winters at Grand Harbor Golf Club in Vero Beach, accepted the head position at Worthington GC and now touts his talents at Waubeeka Golf Links.
Tiele makes extensive use of the newly acquired Trackman Technology as well as visual instruction. He adopts his style after whom he considers golf’s greatest teacher, the late Tom Sullivan, formerly head PGA Professional at Wyantenuck CC. Tiele hosts free clinics each Sunday from 1 – 2 PM for Juniors, coaches in the PGA Junior League, hosts a ladies sip ‘n chip Monday evenings, runs the 3 day Waubeeka Golf Camp three times each year and serves on the Board of Directors of the NENY PGA Section.
