Director of Food & Beverage, Siobhan Walsh
Siobhan is very excited about this next step in her remarkable career. Her initial chapter was a rather typical first step for a young energetic self-starter looking to learn the ropes in the F&B industry. A decade in the fine-dining corner of her industry. A La Carte, group, leisure, business, weddings and more. Siobhan did every job that existed at the facilities where she worked - starting from the bottom and working her way to the top. Her next step after that? The exploding Craft Beer & Brewpub sector including one of the busiest Brewpubs in Canada - The Northlands Brewhouse in Collingwood.
As Siobhan begins her next chapter now in the golf industry, she is thrilled to be able to draw upon her experience so she can position food & drink opportunities at Silver Lakes in a new and heightened manner for all golfers and guests.

Chef, Kyle Comstive
As a young student at the University of Waterloo, Chef Kyle had his path shift in front of him when a serious injury moved him away from athletics and he discovered his passion for food.
Chef Kyle made the schooling switch in order to follow his new love as he enrolled at George Brown college to gain the education he needed to grow and develop.
Upon graduation Kyle worked in many different kitchens serving everything from pub fare to fine food. Prior to joining us here, Kyle sharpened his knives at the Club at Bond Head as well as on the Friday Harbour property at Fishbone Kitchen + Wine Bar.
