Granby – The Grand Elk Owners Association has hired PGA Professional Mike Ritter as general manager of the Grand Elk Golf Club.

Mike served his PGA Apprenticeship at the prestigious Denver Country Club, and has been a golf teacher at Boca Woods Country Club and at Pole Creek Golf Club. He also served as the general manager of Heather Ridge Golf Club in Aurora.

Mike is returning to the Grand Elk Golf Club, where he served as head professional and club manager from 2003 until 2009. His knowledge of the golf course operations and his relationship with many of the Grand Elk homeowners were key factors in his selection.

Mike is also a past president of “Grand Links,” a co-operative marketing effort among the four local golf courses and lodging properties, which helped grow the number of golfers visiting Grand County during the 2000s.

“I’m thrilled to be the new GM of Grand Elk,” said Mike,” and my priorities are to build upon the recent improvements at the golf course and clubhouse, and enhance the sense of community both within Grand Elk and in Grand County overall.

“Golf is a great way to bring together families and friends, and Grand Elk is both a unique mountain golf destination and a vibrant community,” he added. “The homeowners’ excitement about the future of Grand Elk is inspiring.”

Grand Elk Golf Course is a Craig Stadler Signature golf course designed by Tripp Davis and was named one of the “Best New Public Courses” by GolfWeek Magazine in 2005. In season, the course is open for public play and offers a variety of membership options. For more information, call the golf shop at 970-887-9122 or visit
