Golf apologies

-A A +A

With reference to the letter I wrote that was published on April 29 about the golf course renovations, I received a lot of positive feedback and comments in support of encouraging the Los Alamos County Council to cancel, or change, the proposed modifications to our current golf course.
However, there are a couple of items that I need to address. One is the statement that the number of players are “highly inflated” by golf course staff. That was the wrong thing to say and I apologize to the golf course staff for that accusation.
What I was trying to convey is that the numbers of actual golfers using our current facility don’t substantiate building and redesigning a new golf course. Our current course is more than adequate and can be brought back to its former pristine condition at a far less expense than that proposed.
Secondly, when I said that the county could use the extra money to hire “a new more qualified and better superintendent,” that statement was poorly written and just plain wrong and for that I sincerely apologize.
Richard Matteson was a great superintendent and had a lot of great ideas to improve the golf course, but lack of staff and this horrible drought we are suffering really impeded much of the progress he could have made and he will be dearly missed.
