New Manager and new procedures at Homestead at Wolf Ridge golf course

KILLALOE – Rose Shulist has assumed the mantle as manager of Homestead at Wolf Ridge golf club in Killaloe at a very unusual time, but things have seemed to work out very well.

She explains the new procedures that have come into being at the club since its May 16 opening.

Tee times are now 12 minutes apart instead of the usual 10 minutes, in order to better separate golfers at the 18-hole course. And, only one person to a cart, unless from the same household. Don’t touch the flags, no handshaking and keep 2 meters apart! Only the bathroom in the clubhouse is available for use, since they need to be able to clean it every 30 minutes.

Despite all the new regulations and precautions you can still get a hot dog and some grab-and-go items from the club house, and on men’s days and women’s days, they even have full meals to go.

Shulist is very happy with the way things have been going so far. She says that the course is just as busy as it was this time last year.

Although she came onto the Wolf Ridge team just last year, she has had a lot of experience both with management and the golf world.

She is, of course, a part of the Pratt family that has owned and run the Ash Grove for 25 years now.

Before moving up to Barry’s Bay with her family in 1999, she worked at an advertising agency in Ottawa. Initially she was coming up on weekends to visit and help out at the family’s business.
