North Halton Golf & Country Club director of golf and Canada's men's curling team skip at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Japan, Mike Harris, has accepted the head pro's position at the Banff Springs Golf Club. A Georgetown native, Harris earned a silver medal at the Nagano Games and currently works as a commentator on the CBC's curling coverage. The 38-year-old Harris starts his new job in early May. "Yes, it was a difficult decision to move because I do have roots here in town," Harris said on Tuesday. "It's a big move with the family and yet it's an opportunity that I just couldn't pass up." Harris's wife Beth, also a competitive curler, is a teacher at Limehouse Public School and will likely take a year's sabbatical. The couple has three children. Harris added that the move won't affect his television commitments with the CBC, although he will opt not to curl competitively next winter.
