Wikimedia Commons

A new golf professional, Patti Marquis, has been selected by the Eagle River city council  to manage and market their 18-hole municipal course, replacing Howard Manske  who retired.

Marquis comes from the Pacific Northwest where she has been the head professional for four different courses. In an interview, Marquis indicated she has been in the Eagle River area three or four times recently and fell in love with the area. Although she didn't play the Eagle River course, she indicated she has viewed it. Marquis was one of 14 persons who applied with three being interviewed.

An occasional critic of the course management, resident Dick Hanson, praised the council on the selection and making this management move. Council member Jerry Burkett stated every aspect of the course will be discussed and the new pro will run the course.

The course contributes $70,000 to the city for tax relief.

Marquis indiated she had been looking for a vacation home after touring the chain of lakes and now thinks she is a Packer fan. Her duties will begin near the end of January.
