Golden Golf Club finds a new head golf pro

The Golden Golf Club has found a head pro who cannot wait for a new season to begin.

The Golden Golf Club recently hired Graeme Kreiner as the Head Golf Professional for the course.

Kreiner grew up in Hinton, Alberta where at the age of 12 he started picking range balls and getting into the game. He continued to work in the industry and started to work in a pro shop before becoming an assistant pro and on to a head pro. After spending last year in Drayton Valley Kreiner made the decision to come to Golden.

After realizing he missed the mountains, Kreiner saw the chance to move to golden would be perfect for him.

“I had been out to Golden a number of times. I have played the golf course a half a dozen times and been up to the ski hill a number of times,” Kreiner said. “I love the valley. So to have the opportunity to come out here…I jumped at the chance.”

The golf course itself is one of the selling points for Kreiner to make a move.

“The mountain views through the tree lines are very similar to Hinton. Each hole is cut out of the trees. There is not a lot of intertwining between holes. You are by yourself and only see the group in front or behind and maybe the beverage cart,” he said.

As for the upcoming season Kreiner said things are well underway to have a strong start to the year.

“With any transition it takes a little time to get settled but with each passing day I feel more comfortable as we get started for the upcoming season and beyond.”

As for his job Kreiner said, “I enjoy the daily interaction with guests and club members. This could be just checking them in, tee times, lessons or booking tournaments. All of that good stuff,” he said. “There are not too many days that are exactly the same. It is ever changing. Plus the staff members are great to deal with as well. I consider myself a people person.”

Kreiner added he is looking forward to meeting people when the new season starts.
