Meet THE TEAM
CAM JACQUES – GENERAL MANAGER
Welcome to the Medicine Hat Golf & CC. My name is Cam Jacques and I have had the privilege of being the General Manager at “The Hat Golf Club” for the past 21 years. I have been managing golf courses for almost 30 years now, with previous stops at The Pemberton Valley Golf & CC just outside Whistler BC, St. Andrews Golf Club near Penticton BC, Kanata Lakes Golf & CC located in Ottawa ON, and Canyon Meadows Golf & CC in Calgary. My schooling was completed at Selkirk College in Nelson BC where I received my diploma in the Golf Course Management Program in 1992.
My wife Susan along with our two children moved Medicine Hat in 2000 and are very proud to call Medicine Hat our home. Medicine Hat is a dynamic city with so much to see and explore and “The Country Club” is definitely one of the city’s crown jewels.
The golf course overlooks the South Saskatchewan River and is a majestic, well-manicured, tree lined golf course that is a real treat to play. The putting surfaces at “The Hat” are second to none and our “Amen Corner” at holes #13-#15 will challenge golfers of all abilities.
Our experienced staff will make sure your day at the MHG&CC is one to remember. Our knowledgeable and friendly staff members will assist you in the Pro Shop with your check in, our servers will make sure your burger at “The Turn” has the exact toppings you like and that your beer is cold. Finally, your stop at our 19th hole will include some old fashion hospitality and panoramic views of our beautiful river valley on our back patio.
So, if today is your first visit to the MHG&CC, enjoy your experience to the fullest and I know we will see you again. If you have already toured our beautiful property before…then welcome back and come say hello, as my door is always open.
Yours in Golf,
Our PGA Professionals
