Interesting to hear through the grapevine that Ontario and Quebec-based golf giant ClubLink Corp., now under the control of real estate mogul Rai Sahi, has apparently parted company with a couple of key executives.
Longtime turf and course development vice-president Jim [photopress:blair.jpg,full,alignright]Molenhuis, as well as member services VP (and former Fairmont director of golf) Murray Blair, are both history. Blair only joined the company in 2005, coming over to address some concerns about member issues. By all accounts he’d done an admirable job. Maybe Molenhuis worked himself out of a job, especially since the company seems unlikely to be developing new projects in the near future.
I have no idea what the circumstances are beyond perhaps Sahi putting his own stamp on the company. Interesting to add that Ryan Beauchamp, the super at ClubLink flagship Glen Abbey, has also departed. He’d been a driving factor in the improvement of course conditioning at the Abbey.
I’ve put out some inquiries and will report back on what I hear.
