    Beau Ulrich - Director of Treats
Beau and Blake became family in February 2023 and he instantly joined the KGC Golf Shop family. He can be found most days in the back office wagging his tail and enticing members, guests, and delivery drivers to pat him as well as spare and goodies that they may have in their pockets. When not in the office he is likely following Blake's golf cart (or riding in it), chasing squirrels or visiting the neighbours. He is an integral member of the team being the one who brightens the day of everyone he greets.
