Dave Callum announced his resignation from being Lone Wolf Golf Club’s General Manager on Tuesday, August 14. Callum has been with Lone Wolf since 2008, and said leaving the course won’t be easy.
“A great opportunity presented itself to me, and it's a good move for me and my family. But I'm definitely going to miss this place, it's like leaving home," said Callum.
His last day at the Taylor course is September 12. Callum is moving on to become the general manager at the Fort McMurray Golf Club, where he will start on September 17. The course has 27 holes, nine of those a recent addition, and a newly built clubhouse after the old one was destroyed by wildfire in 2016.
Callum leaves with fond memories of working at Lone Wolf and is proud of the course Lone Wolf is today.
"We've had a lot of changes for the good here. From adding water, the junior golf program, and hosting great events, its a place people come and have fun and enjoy with their families," Callum said.
Callum said he's confident his replacement at Lone Wolf will do a great job going forward.
"We have good people in place here, they'll be fine and will get a lot of quality applicants that will want to champion the course. The staff here are great, and whoever comes in next will be very lucky to have the people they have here," said Callum.
