The Los Alamos Golf Course clubhouse looked wilted in the afternoon sun. Its stucco exterior bubbled and peeled at the corners and the main entrance was shrouded in darkness.
The clubhouse, which was built in the 1970s, has served not just golfers but the community. Everything from tournaments to Easter egg hunts are held on its grounds. It seems only fair that Los Alamos return the favor, and on July 12, the county did.
Los Alamos County Councilors approved phase two of the final design and construction for a new clubhouse. Phase one, or the study phase for the project, was approved in April 2009.
“I think it’s really exciting for the whole community,” said Steve Wickliffe, golf course manager.
Capital Projects and Facilities Director Anne Laurent said the project is greatly needed.
The clubhouse is in a state of disrepair, she said. Over the years, the roof has leaked and other issues have caused the wood to rot. A section of the clubhouse has to be closed to the public for safety reasons.
Laurent said the clubhouse is not in compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act.
The new facility, she said, will be larger than the current building — it will jump from 12,000 square feet to 15,175 square feet. The building will also be moved west of the current facility.
