It takes team effort to keep club operations running smoothly. We take great pride in giving our members a positive golf experience whether it’s in the pro-shop interacting with staff, on the range during a lesson with the pro, or on the beautifully maintained course and grounds.
Bill graduated from Ferris State University with a bachelor’s degree in marketing/professional golf, and has been a PGA professional since 1992. His work experience includes the Orlando World Center in Orlando, Florida, the Elcona Country Club in Elkhart, Indiana, The Club Course at Sea Pines Resort on Hilton Head Island, and Grand Haven Golf Club, Grand Haven, Michigan.
He started at White Lake Golf Club in 1995, and is truly a member of the White Lake Golf Club family. He excels as a teacher of golf at all levels, as a tournament director, and he enjoys the challenges of running the day-to-day club house operation. He operates and owns the pro-shop at the club, and offers the latest in golf equipment, apparel, and everyday supplies.
Bill was born and raised in Holland, Michigan, where most of his family lives today. He moved to Whitehall with his wife Melissa, also from Holland, and their two daughters, Nikki and Brooke.
Savannah has been with the club for ten years. She works the desk, knows all the members by name, and greets them all with a smile. She graduated from Whitehall High School in 2009 where she enjoyed playing on the girl’s golf team (she currently has a nine handicap at WLGC), and on the basketball team.
She graduated from Muskegon Community College with an Associates Degree in Science and Arts in 2012, and also from Grand Valley State University with a BS in Allied Health Sciences and a Minor in Biology in 2014. She is still undecided with what she would like to do, but something in the medical field is likely.
