The 64th annual City Championship golf tournament tees off Saturday morning at Los Alamos Golf Course.
The two-day tournament runs through Sunday, pairing some of the top players in the county. The 36-hole event gets going at 11 a.m. Saturday.
The 2011 City tournament won’t have the same big participation numbers as did the 2010 event. Last year’s tournament attracted 103 players, which is the record in the event’s 63-year history.
LAGC head professional Donnie Torres said the City tournament suffered from some schedule-shuffling. LAGC is scheduled to hold two big events in August, including the state women’s amateur championship, and was pushed up to this weekend.
As of Friday morning, the field included 54 players. He was hoping to bump that up to 60 by the time the pairings were released — registration was supposed to conclude Wednesday but spots may still be open for those interested in playing.
In 2010, Curt Norman outlasted his brother Jason Norman to claim his first City championship.
The Normans were tied following 36 holes and went to a sudden-death playoff. In the playoff, the two were even through four holes, but on the fifth Jason’s 4-foot par putt on the No. 1 green rolled wide.
