LAGC hosts first big tourney of summer

-A A +A

Golf: Around 60 players expected to compete in 2012 Best Ball event

By Mike Cote

Los Alamos Golf Course is set to host its first major tournament of the summer this weekend.
While it’s technically not summer yet, many consider Memorial Day the kick-off of the season. LAGC is no exception, as it hosts the Memorial Day Best Ball Tournament starting Saturday.
The Memorial Day Best Ball tournament is one of four course-sponsored events that mark the course’s busiest time of the year.
This summer is shaping up to be a busy one at LAGC, despite the fact it’s still working through design and funding issues with Los Alamos County. Money for course improvements, including the construction of a new clubhouse, has been approved by council, but those improvements may still be several years away.
Head course professional Donnie Torres said that while battling maintenance issues is an ongoing fight at LAGC, the early part of the season is going pretty well.
“It’s getting good. We’re pretty excited,” Torres said. “A lot of that is due to the condition of the course. Richard (Matteson) has done a good job of getting the course back up from square one.”
