Changes at Muskoka Bay Club

I’ve been hearing rumblings of some changes at Muskoka Bay Club, including some tweaks in Doug Carrick’s design, and now, unexpectedly, a notable departure.

Jeff Boismier, GM at Muskoka Bay, announced his departure from the club, something I first heard about last week. Here’s the note I received:

I would like to take this opportunity to inform you that effective Dec. 20, 2006 Muskoka Bay Golf Corporation and I have agreed to discontinue our involvement together.

Through a mutually agreeable and amicable separation I have left Muskoka Bay to pursue other interests and opportunities in the golf industry.

Getting through these past 2 years of Construction and Opening operations would not have been possible without the support and co-operation of all those involved (personally and professionally) both directly and indirectly.

I am grateful for any support received and will treat this experience/learning as invaluable.

I look forward to what lies ahead and wish Muskoka Bay all the best with their development!

At this time I would also like to wish you and yours Much Happiness over the Holidays and All the Best in the New Year!

Cheers for now.
Jeff Boismier

Boismier had previously run National Pines until it was taken over by ClubLink. He was central to the operations and launch of Muskoka Bay and this move is certainly suprising and unexpected, especially since the club apparently saw strong demand since opening mid-season last summer. Muskoka Bay was also awarded a couple of “Best New” titles by Fairways and Ontario Golf, so the club was clearly well received. Boismier was even on the cover of Ontario Golf in the fall standing in front of one of Muskoka Bay’s rolling fairways.

  • All the best to Jeff, “that man can golf his ball”. Trust me, as an opener myself the two years Jeff was there probably went by like a few months but aged him 5 years. And opening a course is like hitting into the 17th at Prestwick….someone else finds finds your ball and finishes the round.
