EDWARDS, Colorado - Mike Henritze has been named general manager of the Club at Cordillera, effective immediately, John Easterbrook, executive vice president of Troon Golf announced earlier this month.
Henritze, formerly general manager of the Ridge at Castle Pines North, one of Troon Golf's premier facilities located in Castle Pines, has been interim general manager of the Club at Cordillera since Troon Prive took over the operation on Jan. 1.
"We have been 100 percent focused on restoring The Club at Cordillera to its prominence as one of the preeminent mountain golf club communities in the country," Easterbrook said. "Mike has led that effort since we arrived at Cordillera and his mastery of operations and guest and member service is exemplary of the Troon principals. We are thrilled that he has opted to move to the mountains and restore excellence in all facets of the Club at Cordillera."
Henritze, prior to his position at the Ridge at Castle Pines, was general manager for Troon Golf's flagship property, Troon North Club in Scottsdale, AZ. This 36-hole upscale resort and private golf course designed by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish was ranked as the No. 1 public golf course in the state of Arizona.
In his new position, Henritze is charged with the oversight of The Club at Cordillera and all of its operations, including golf, merchandising, food and beverage, course maintenance and agronomy, general and administrative operations, housekeeping, concierge, and member services.
"We look forward to the opportunity to build The Club at Cordillera into what is, once again, a magnificent private mountain golf club," Henritze said. "I think the start of a good foundation has been laid successfully and my goal is to create a vibrancy where the members engage and visit the club again and again. It is our job to create that atmosphere and vibe."
Henritze's interests include his family, golf, reading, all sports, the outdoors and hiking. He is a graduate of the University of Wyoming.
