DETROIT LAKES — After 30 years of service, Mark Holm, head golf professional at Detroit Country Club in Detroit Lakes, announced his retirement in a post on the golf course's Facebook page on Wednesday, May 18.

"After careful consideration, I have decided that 2022 will be my last year as the Head Golf Professional at the Detroit Country Club," Holm said in the post. "I want to thank each and every one of you for being part of my time at DCC."

Over the course of a 30-year career, Holm said he has met many lifelong friends and been a part of countless memories.

"I am looking forward to being able to spend more time in warmer weather, hopefully getting to just play more golf for fun, and most importantly, spend more time with my family and grandchildren," he wrote. "I do not yet know what, exactly, the future might hold for me, but fortunately I have some time to figure that out."

More than 122 people left thoughtful comments, remembrances and congratulations on the retirement post in less than 24 hours, including Holm's daughter, Lindsay, who wrote: "I’m so proud of you Dad! From take your daughter to work day, learning how to drive a cart, taking junior golf lessons from you with the amazing DL kids, picking the range, selling snickers in the parking lot, to becoming the beer cart girl…there are too many memories. I’m just a girl that wants to be by her Dad and this place was filled with great people that felt the same."
