Director of Golf
Recently splitting his time as Director of Instruction at both The International and at Bay Colony Golf Club in Naples, Fla., Celano’s promotion to Director of Golf at The International brings him home to the Northeast. Originally from Tarrytown, N.Y. and raised in Maryland, Celano graduated with a business degree from Murray State University, where he lettered four years on the golf team, captained the team his junior and senior years, and played in two NCAA Championships. Prior to his time at The International, Celano served as Director of Golf at Grand Cypress Resort in Orlando; Sherwood Country Club in California; Doral Resort and CC in Miami; Governors Club in North Carolina and TwinEagles Golf Club in Florida. Celano has given over 20,000 lessons or clinics to golfers of all ages and skill levels. The proof of his leadership and ability to foster talent is evidenced by over 35 Golf Professionals currently working in the industry now as Directors of Golf, apparel company presidents, PGA National Teachers of the Year, and Rules Director for PGA Tour Champions -- all formerly assistants of his.
