Our Professional Team
Our PGA Professional team is lead by joint Head Professionals Mark Packard and Anthony Killik.
Mark has been at Royal Eastbourne since his junior days and represented the club at all levels. Mark turned professional in 2003 and was Head Assistant until taking over with Anthony in September 2018.
During his time here, Mark has coached all levels and taken juniors from beginners through to county standard. Mark specialises in ladies coaching and runs a successful junior programme every Saturday morning.
After turning professional in 2004 following a successful amateur career, Anthony discovered a passion for coaching which has led him to Royal Eastbourne. A firm believer that anyone can play golf, Anthony’s teaching style utilises the players natural abilities and works to enhance them rather than trying to change too much. Highly personable and approachable, Anthony is always happy to help, and his coaching style has become popular with members and visitors alike.
As well as being a class AA PGA professional, Anthony is also a certified putting instructor and has helped golfers of all levels improve their putting.
