The Ridge at Castle Pines North Golf Course (The Ridge) recently welcomed a new general manager, Michael Henritze, who replaced former manager of four years, Darrell Fuston.
Henritze brings valued experience to The Ridge after serving as general manager and director of golf at Troon North Golf Club, known as Troon Golf’s flagship facility and rated the top daily-fee course in Arizona by Golf Digest magazine. Prior to his time at Troon North, Henritze gained extensive knowledge and background from a 20-year career in the fixed income securities market.
“I am thrilled at the opportunity to contribute to the success and reputation of The Ridge,” said Henritze. “The challenge of elevating a course that has already reached levels of high acclaim is something my team and I am eager to accomplish.”
Henritze’s responsibilities at The Ridge will include oversight of golf operations, group and tournament sales, merchandising, food and beverage operations, golf course maintenance, and general administrative operations.
“I aim to utilize my skills to continue the tradition of exceptional golf at The Ridge,” said Henritze. “I am also interested in expanding other amenities we offer such as the food and beverage operations.” To participate in an on-line survey about The Ridge Restaurant remaining open during the winter months, go to www.playtheridge.com/survey.
Henritze joins The Ridge just in time for its 10-year anniversary, and plans are already underway for celebrations and activities throughout the year, including free “play days” exclusively for CPN residents.
“The Master Association and The Ridge are working closely together to forge a stronger relationship for the benefit of the community,” said Master Association President Maureen Shul. “They [The Ridge] are eager and excited about the future of our community.”
