The Atomic City Invitational is back on the schedule.
Los Alamos Golf Course head professional Donnie Torres said the event has been rescheduled for Labor Day weekend.
The ACI, the oldest match-play tournament in the state, had originally been scheduled around the Independence Day holiday, but was postponed when Los Alamos was evacuated during the Las Conchas Fire. Since 1950, the tournament has only been canceled once, in 2000 following the Cerro Grande Fire.
The tournament is the biggest golf event of the year and has attracted numerous golfers from around the state.
In 2010, the men’s ACI championship was won by Parker Ashton of Santa Fe, who cruised to an impressive victory, outlasting a top local golfer, Curt Norman. Ev Griggs won her record-tying ninth women’s ACI title and Bruce Norman won the men’s seniors title in his first attempt on that circuit.
Match-play pits two golfers playing head-to-head. The winner is determined by number of holes won as opposed to number of strokes. The champion of the men’s flight will have to win three straight contests.
The tournament starts Sept. 2 and concludes with the men’s 27-hole final round Sept. 5.
