New Members of the True North Team

We have added two dynamic individuals to our Team and you will be pleased to meet both as they are eager to serve you this year!

Tom Van Haaren, PGA joins us as our new Associate Golf Professional and the right hand to Brent Redman, our Director of Golf.  Tom has a wealth of experience in the golf industry as a former Head Golf Professional in Bloomfield Hills, MI and Scottsdale, AZ.  He is an excellent, service oriented professional, as well as an accomplished instructor to offer assistance to Bob Elliott our Director of Instruction.  Tom will split his time between Harbor Springs and Scottsdale.

Tom and I go way back, having served as Sections Officers for the Michigan PGA plus several years together on the PGA’s National Rules of Golf Committee.  His wife Deanne is the Merchandise Manager of two of Desert Mountains best golf/spa shops.  They have spent several years in Harbor Springs over the course of time and their friends from DM are excited to come to visit True North!

Karl Salmon, Sous Chef joins our Executive Chef, Bob Bagley, as his right hand man!  Karl has been an Chef d cuisine locally and recently with Bay Harbor.  It’s a unique situation that we are fortunate to have Karl join our team as he is a single Dad and needs to be present in his children’s lives so we can allow him the time he needs and he can provide an excellent compliment to Bob each day.  My expectations are very high for the improvements we have in mind for breakfast, lunch daily and dinner this year on Friday and Saturday nights!

Karl is a master at “club food” to the highest quality.  Plus, with his Jamaican background he can add a flair to the creative side.  He has been highly recommended both for his expertise and his personality.  Both Bob and Karl share a passion for food and will make a dynamic team in the kitchen at True North!
