Mark Carlson to Lead Pike Lake Golf & Beach Club Reopening
Great news for Northland golf enthusiasts! The Pike Lake Golf & Beach Club will re-open in 2020 under the leadership of Northland golf pro Mark Carlson.
Carlson announced the news on his Facebook page, while also adding that he will be working with some familiar faces from Nemadji Golf Course:
I would like to thank the Anderson Family for allowing us to be part of this exciting opportunity to re-open the Pike Lake Golf & Beach Club.
I will take on the role to oversee the clubhouse, course and beach operations. We will attempt to get all phases of the asset in good shape and up and running by Spring 2020.
The Auto Club has served as an excellent family recreational facility in the Pike Lake area for many years. We hope to keep that tradition going and improve and expand on it in the future. The PLG & BC will be an important part of the community providing golf, beach and family recreation combined with fun social and business outings.
The Anderson have an exciting long term vision that includes residential housing and additional amenities.
Today, i would like at announce the following additions to the Staff:
Reenie Kinney: General Manger (Reenie did an excellent job at Nemadji as the Operations Manager the last 4 years)
Steve Flagstad: Director of Grounds (Steve was the Golf Superintendent at Nemadji the last 31 years. He earned "Best Public Course" honors the last 3 years in the "Best of the Best" awards by the Duluth NewsTribune)
Scott Skorich: Food & Beverage Manager (Scotty has worked at Nemadji the last 28 years and provided excellent food, beverage and banquet service for the 4 star rated Nemadji GC)
As someone who enjoys golfing, but is the first to admit that I'm not very good, I'm glad this course is going to again be an option. It's in a nice area and is a forgiving place to work on your short game, or just hack away before having a few beers with friends.
