They may not be new faces at the Humboldt Golf Club, but they are in new positions. Corey Schweitzer has been named as the new General Manager of the Club, and he is joined by new colleague Mike Weber as the Financial Manager.
Both men have been affiliated with the Humboldt Golf Club for some time. Schweitzer, originally from Humboldt, returned in 2006 as the owner of Humboldt Tree and Turf. As well as being a member since that time, he has served on the Golf Club Board for the past five years.
His colleague, Mike Weber, is well-known in the area, both for his work in the insurance industry, but also as an active participant in playing, coaching, and umping baseball and fastball in his hometown of Muenster. He's been a member of the Club for fifteen years. Both men approach their new duties with an obvious passion and a host of ideas to spur the success of the Club.
Schweitzer brings his previous knowledge and ideas with him from his tenure as a board member. Asked about what he's looking forward to in his new role, Schweitzer responds, "I think we've had good ideas over the last several years, and we're looking forward to getting those going. We're going to focus really hard on our junior program. We've got some new ideas to advance it. We've got some big tournaments coming into town; we have the RBC here in June. That's their regional tournament so that will be a full field tournament."
Mike Weber elaborates on some of the duties he will be undertaking, "I'll be helping out in the pro shop when I can but my main duties reflect around the finance. So I'll be looking after the books and ensuring that everything is above board."
With the weather finally cooperating, the management and staff are hoping for an April start with plenty of good weather to launch their new careers.
