Useless Bay golf, country club hires new general manager

Christi Karvasek was recently promoted to general manager of Useless Bay Golf and Country Club from member services manager. She replaces former general manager Bill Davis.

Karvasek will be responsible for “all aspects” of the club and supervision of 44 full-time and seasonal employees. According to Tim See, club president, Karvasek was selected from a large number of candidates.

Karvasek, a graduate of Griffin College in Seattle, worked for DBM Corp. for over 20 years and held the role of corporate marketing manager during that time. She and her husband Dan moved to Whidbey Island 22 years ago. She was first hired by the club in November 2012.

“I’m especially pleased with the timing of this opportunity because it’s the club’s 50th anniversary in 2017,” Karvasek said. “Also, we’re progressing on the new Herb Magnuson Golf Learning Center, the high school golf teams are enlivening the club and we are currently hosting servicemen and women from NAS Whidbey for a round of golf and a meal. The club has done this for over a decade to show our appreciation for their service to our country. Also, many community groups hold functions here.”
