Haverhill, MA (March 5, 2018) - Northern Essex Community College Director of Athletics Dan Blair has announced that Mike Dube has been named the head golf coach of the Knights program which will resume competition in the spring of 2019 after nearly a 20 year hiatus.
"I'm excited for the opportunity to become a collegiate golf coach and look forward to bringing the program back to the varsity level and competing at a high level," commented Dube.
Dube who has served as an assistant pro at the nearby Atkinson Resort & Country Club since 2015 (home course of the Knights re-established program) also serves as head coach of the Timberlane Regional High School boys varsity golf program. He also has experience coaching PGA junior league golf teams. Prior to his time at Atkinson, Dube has also spent time at the nearby Haverhill Country Club and Renaissance Golf Club.
"I'm pleased and excited to welcome Mike to the NECC athletic department and our larger community. His experiences on the golf course and his local connections will help our program thrive. I look forward to seeing where he can lead our reestablished golf program," said Blair.
A native of nearby Atkinson, NH, Dube is a graduate of Timberlane Regional. Dube has an Associates Degree in Management from Coastal Carolina and has successfully passed Level 3 PGA certification. Dube will spend time this spring and summer recruiting a team that will compete in NJCAA Region XXI for the first time since the spring 2000 season. The program does lay claim to the 1993 regional title.
