Lakepoint Golf and Country Club looks ahead to 2019 season

The Lakepoint Golf and Country Club suddenly finds itself in an unenviable position — without a general manager and head professional just months before the start of the season.

The Lakepoint Golf and Country Club suddenly finds itself in an unenviable position — without a general manager and head professional just months before the start of the season.

Outgoing GM Ryan Galay left the club to become the general manager at Lone Wolf Golf Club in Taylor. But Lakepoint isn’t letting that slow them down and looks to be just fine.

“Things have gone well. We have some good resumes coming in, we will announce a new GM soon and we will be in good shape for this year,” said Lakepoint Vice President Travis Eggers.

An announcement could be made as soon as this weekend, with the new person starting work in early March. Ideally, Lakepoint would take a bit more time to find a candidate, but Eggers admitted the timing forces the club’s hand a bit.

“We don’t want to rush, but we do need to move forward,” said Eggers.

Eggers said Lakepoint is looking forward to collaborating with Galay and Lone Wolf going forward.

“There’s no them and us. We’re all just trying to survive in the golf industry,” said Eggers.
