A pair of out-of-towners and a course veteran are in the running for the top job at Los Alamos Golf Course.
Michael Phillips, assistant course professional at LAGC is one of the three finalists for the LAGC manager’s job, along with Jeff Kent from nearby Towa Golf Course and Steve Wickliffe from far away Old Works Golf Course in Anaconda, Mont.
The new manager, which will take over for retired LAGC manager Dennis McCloskey, could be announced sometime this month.
LAGC’s manager’s post became available after McCloskey officially stepped down in July. McCloskey, the most celebrated professional golfer that Los Alamos has ever produced, held the top job at the golf course for 32 years.
Wickliffe, who has managed the 21-hole Old Works Golf Course since its opening in 1997, said at a meet-and-greet session at LAGC Aug. 14 that he’s ready to try something a little different.
“I had the opportunity to see it grow and prosper,” Wickliffe said of the Montana golf course, which was designed by golfing great Jack Nicklaus. “It’s time for a new challenge, a new opportunity...I like north-central New Mexico. I like the mountains, I like the recreational opportunities and I like the challenge of what’s going to happen at (LAGC) over the next several years.”
