I grew up in Kalamazoo and have spent the majority of my career in Northern Michigan. I have been at Leland Country Club, Manistee National Resort and Wilderness Valley/Black Forest in Gaylord. I served most of my apprenticeship as an assistant pro in the Chicagoland area and have spent many winters in Palm Beach County, FL. So, like many golf pros, I have been around some. It only took one year in Green Bay (actually just a few months), however, to realize how much I missed Northern Michigan, so I am very happy to have landed here at Indian River.

A graduate of Ferris State University and their Professional Golf Management Program, Corey has over 25 years experience in the golf business.  

"A golf club should be an integral part of the community and to that end, I look forward to working with the Chamber of Commerce, local businesses and charities.  My goal as General Manager is to enhance existing amenities and create new programs at Indian River Golf Club for the mutual enjoyment of its membership and the surrounding community"
