Meet the Good Family

Nick and Krista Good’s golf journey began only recently when their good friends Dan and Becky VanderBaan invited them to experience Egypt Valley as guests during the pandemic.

“We fell in love with the ability to be outside in beautiful scenery and enjoy having a competitive sport to play together as a family and with friends,” said Krista. “Although we have a lot to learn, it’s fun to have a challenging active sport to improve upon.”

Nick, who grew up in Dayton, Ohio, owns NBG Capital, a mergers and acquisitions advisory helping people sell their companies. Krista, who is originally from Holland, works at Anesthesia Practice Consultants as a Nurse Anesthetist, and spends most of her working hours in the operating rooms at Metro Hospital, Midtown, and other sites around West Michigan.

The couple met while attending Calvin College some years ago, and while the couple both conducted their graduate studies out in Boston (which they loved), they were happy to return to Michigan to be closer to family and start their own. Today, they share three children: Harry, Tyson and Sloane.

The Goods have been Egypt Valley members for a couple years now and although they’re new to playing golf, they’ve thoroughly enjoyed being involved in the Club’s Men’s and Ladies’ Leagues.

“One of the ‘requirements’ of us joining the club was that I had to join Ladies’ League,” Krista said. “Our kids are also fully involved in swim team, junior golf, dive, and tennis.”

There’s much the Goods love about Egypt Valley, including that it’s so family oriented and boasts incredibly well-designed and cared for courses.

“There are so many activities for the kids to participate in, and we have really loved being able to plug into this community of members. There are also people of all ages who often encourage us and our kiddos when they see us on the golf course, which reaffirms that this is such a welcoming place to be,” Krista explained. “We love that there are two 18-hole courses which allows you to be able to get on the course at pretty much anytime. The course design is amazing as well, and we often talk about which holes are our favorites.”

When they’re not on the green, the Goods could be found enjoying dinner on the scenic patio, which they say is one of the best outdoor dining experiences around.

Outside of the Club, the Good family enjoys the outdoors, whether it's swimming at the beach or in the pool, skiing and sledding in the winter and escaping the Michigan winters once in a while for the Florida beaches.

If you see the Good family around the Club, be sure to say, “Hello!”
