Superintendent/ General Manager- Derek Wirth

CGSA Golf Course Superintendent


Like most people who enter the turfgrass profession, it was the love for the game of golf that originally brought him to work.  He started golfing at 12 years old when he first moved to Whitehorse in 1992.  He was a junior member of MVGC starting the next year and continued to be until he started working as part of the grounds crew in 1998. Originally, he was interested in being a Golf Professional and started attending Grant MacEwan in Edmonton, Alberta enrolled in Management Studies.  He soon realized that being a playing professional was not in the cards.  Still wanting a career within the golf industry, he finished his Professional Golf Management diploma in 2001 before immediately enrolling in Turf Grass Management at Olds College the following fall.  He graduated from Olds in 2003 and took a 9 hole Superintendent position in Mayerthorpe, Alberta.  He completed 2 years there before returning to Whitehorse in 2005.  Derek took over as the Assistant Superintendent at Mountain View in 2006 for 3 years before finally taking over the helm of the Maintenance Department in 2009. Derek has been a member of the CGSA (Canadian Golf Course Superintendent Association) since 2003.
