Email Mike Goff
Mike Goff has more than 25 years of experience in the hospitality industry with a diverse background in hotel management, acquisition transition management and private club management.
Mike graduated from Niagara University in 1989 with a Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management. Upon graduation, he was hired as front office manager of the world-renowned Statler Hotel, located on the campus of Cornell University. In 1991, he was recruited by Harvey Hotels & Resorts in Dallas, Texas, and spent the next 12 years with Harvey Hotels / Bristol Hotels & Resorts / Intercontinental Hotels & Resorts, between Dallas, Atlanta and Orlando.
In 2003, Mike accepted the position as general manager of La Cima Club. He made an immediate impact at the Club with the help of an inspired staff and Club committees, leading La Cima Club to achieve the Gold Circle of Excellence Award, the highest honor bestowed on a ClubCorp Club. The Club received the Circle of Excellence designation again in 2004 and 2005 under his leadership.
In August 2005, Mike accepted the position as general manager of Timarron Country Club in Southlake, Texas. While there, Mike and his team strengthened the membership and retention, developed an innovative and much anticipated junior golf development program, and achieved the Circle of Excellence designation over the next three years.
In late 2008, Mike left ClubCorp to start up his own business, a franchised retail concept that he still owns and operates today. However, his passion for the hospitality industry lured him back to ClubCorp in January 2012, where he returned to La Cima Club as general manager.
Mike and his wife, Kim, and their four children, Logan, Katie, Camden and Drew, live in Southlake, Texas.
Melissa has been with ClubCorp since 2015, when she started as a server in Carpenter's restaurant at Las Colinas Country Club while attending the University of North Texas. In her first two and a half years at Las Colinas, she also worked as Pool Manager and Restaurant Manager, and then joined the private events team in early 2018 as Private Event Coordinator. In May 2018, Melissa graduated cum laude from UNT with a bachelor of science degree in hospitality management.
Melissa grew up in Irving, and before working for ClubCorp she attended Tyler Junior College in East Texas, where she continued to pursue a longtime passion for dance and entertaining as a member of the highly regarded Apache Belle drill team. With the Apache Belles, Melissa had the opportunity to travel to various destinations around the world for special performances including entertaining U.S. troops and their families at Camp Humphreys in South Korea; performing for passengers aboard the Carnival Breeze while cruising through the Caribbean; and taking part in events around Texas such as the Houston Thanksgiving Day Parade, Greg Abbott's Governor of Texas Inaugural parade, and many high-kick routines on the football field. Melissa still loves dancing, traveling and entertaining, and all those interests had an impact on her decision to pursue a career in hospitality and tourism. She spends her free time at sporting events, exploring new cities, and relaxing with her family and friends.
Melissa is excited about her new role at La Cima and is looking forward to getting to know each of our Members and Employee Partners!

I have been the Food Service Director at La Cima since March 2003. I enjoy the Members and staff at La Cima, as well as the challenge that comes along with food service.
I was born near Mexico City, and grew up close to Teotihuacan where the historic pyramids reside. I moved to the United States in 1986 and after graduating high school I began working in the food service industry, from cooking in the kitchen to working as a server while attending Junior College. I joined ClubCorp in 1994 as a sever at the University Club on top of Galleria where I met my wife, I worked my way up until I transferred to La Cima where I received my Certification as a Service Director.
I have two wonderful children, Zachary 16 years old and Ava 12 years old and I enjoy every minute with them!
The Members, the staff and the sense of accomplishment make this a GREAT place to work!
