Thom Charters, who recently worked at Coppinwood in Uxbridge, Ont., and Greg Downer, recently of the nearby Muskoka Bay Club, have joined Taboo Muskoka in Gravenhurst, Ont. as golf course manager and golf director, respectively.
“Taboo Muskoka has scored a dream greens team,” says Nigel Hollidge, managing director of Taboo Muskoka.
“In addition to proven expertise, both Greg and Thom bring Taboo resort an unbeatable combination of energy, knowledge and relationships that will elevate our entire golf environment from the ground up,” he added.
Charters will focus on maximizing the playing quality of Taboo’s tees, fairways and greens.
“The Taboo team is clearly focused on offering a genuinely memorable outdoor experience from the golf courses to the nature trails and waterfront,” said Charters. ”I’m excited to be a part of the evolution of this facility and ensuring turf management makes that prized Muskoka golf day even more satisfying,” he added. A 30-year industry veteran,
Charters’ distinguished career also includes Weston and Islington golf clubs. He is a past president of the Ontario Turf Grass Institute Advisory Board, among many industry positions.
