I am beyond excited to be back to a place that felt like a second home for over a decade. For 13 seasons, I wore many hats at the Ponoka Golf Club and look forward to applying that knowledge to help Chef Paul and Chef Michael achieve their dreams for The Peppered Elk. My family has been local to Ponoka for 4 generations and were a big part of the town's history as business owners and community involvement. I can't wait to get back to following in the footsteps of the generations before me and rekindling the relationships I built during my many years at the course.
