One of the industry’s truly good guys, Jeff Boismier, is joining Deer Creek as its GM. For those of you who don’t know Jeff, he spent a significant amount of time at National Pines in Barrie before it was sold to ClubLink, and then joined Muskoka Bay. The job at Muskoka Bay went badly — he left after apparently not seeing eye-to-eye with the club’s owner. He resurfaced last year working at Magna GC.
Here’s the news:
I feel very excited and lucky to be returning to a well established and family owned golf facility that has a solid reputation in the GTA and a wonderful staff, says Boismier, who spent the 2009 season on staff at Magna Golf Club working for former Deer Creek golf professional Rob Roxborough.
Previous to that, he spent a year managing Nearly New Golf Balls, a year managing a couple of golf ranges in Barrie and two seasons opening Muskoka Bay Club in Gravenhurst. For Boismier, 50, this is a return to his roots. He made a name for himself as the General Manager at National Pines in Barrie when it was a family owned semi-private facility before ClubLink took control in 2004.
To be able to work for the Coughlan Family is a privilege and Im looking forward to managing both the golf and banquet sides of the business, Boismier said. Deer Creek entertains about 100,000 golfers each year and 100,000 guests through its banquets, meeting, events, wedding and galas.
