Local golfers are looking forwards to a solid future and a great 2011 golf season after hiring a new team to manage operations at the Hope Golf & Country Club.

“Looking towards the long term sustainability of the golf course and clubhouse, the membership made the decision to bring in an experienced team to take over the operations. We believe the facility will bring an even greater value to the community through the new operators with added services,” said Larry Ortis.

With thirty years of experience in the food services and the hospitality sector behind them, Chef Kerry Krahn and his wife Claudette formally took over operations last month.  “We believe them to be the perfect fit,” added Ortis.

As avid golfers the new managers will have a special edge in fulfilling the club’s long term vision to provide better service to the community and their fellow golfers.

Golf tournaments, weddings, private parties, and business meetings are now being booked for the newly renovated upstairs clubhouse and the new full service downstairs restaurant, dubbed the Grill and Green, is expected to open soon.

Club members, however, also remain active within the club volunteering many hours to assist the Krahns not only keep the facility “up to existing standards, but continue to go beyond and add value for anyone frequenting the facility…. The golf course will remain the great gem it has always been,” said Ortis.
