Key Personnel


Michael Mather

General Manager


Michael has been the University Golf Club’s General Manager since 1997.  Prior to that, he was the club’s Head Golf Professional for three years. Before coming to UGC in 1994, he spent 14 years working at the prestigious Capilano Golf & Country Club in West Vancouver.

To date Michael has scored 5 hole-in-ones during his golf career…but who’s counting!  He is the only member of his family not born in beautiful British Columbia.  He was born in Scarborough, Ontario but we won’t hold that against him as he’s definitely not a Leafs fan.

He and his wife Jacquie, were married at UGC’s gorgeous gazebo garden in the summer of 2009.  They were blessed with the birth of their first child, Nathan, in the spring of 2012 and then the arrival of beautiful Aubrey, in the spring of 2014.  If you recall…those same two springs, Bubba Watson won the Masters…so we’ll always be curious of what might happen if he manages a third ‘green jacket”!!

Words to live by: “Life isn’t a dress rehearsal…and it goes by far too quickly!”

Michael Richard

Buildings Manager


Michael – known as Spike – hails from a career of construction, starting when he arrived in Vancouver coming from the Hammer in the summer of 1992. Spike entered the commercial construction industry almost immediately on the ground level. In 1997 he earned his ticket as an Interior Systems Mechanic and then spent the 5 years prior to joining UGC in the residential construction industry.

Spike enjoys golfing in his spare time and loyally watching The Leafs and Ti-cats. Oskee Wee wee.

Nicole Rogers

Guest Services Supervisor


Nicole is a recent addition to the University Golf Club staff. She grew up in Ontario and moved to beautiful Vancouver three years ago to pursue a Bachelor’s of Science at UBC.  This is her first season at UGC and she is very much looking forward to expanding her skill set in her role as Guest Services Supervisor. Nicole will be playing an integral part in UGC’s expanded social media platforms.

In her free time, Nicole enjoys exploring the city, hiking and spending time at the beach. New to the golfing family, Nicole’s goal is to take her current Pitch n Putt skills to the big leagues and learn how to play a full course!
