Steve Wickliffe has plenty of items on his plate right now.
Along with all the usual summer happenings at Los Alamos Golf Course, Wickliffe also has the extra jobs of heading for meetings with Los Alamos County officials, preparing for the upcoming improvements at the course and making sure the course is in the best condition it can be.
On top of that, there is a new nationwide golf initiative that LAGC has adopted in order to boost participation numbers.
“It’s been a challenge,” said Wickliffe, LAGC’s manager. “At the same time, we know at the facility, Donnie (Torres), Mike (Phillips) and myself, the county recreation staff, we have to be proactive. That’s what we’re trying to do.”
Golf 2.0, which sounds like it might be a new software download, is actually an initiative spearheaded by the PGA and the U.S. Golf Association to grow participation in the game.
Nationally, the number of active golfers has slipped for most of the last decade. According to Golf Week magazine, 4.6 million players had left the game since 2005, while rounds played have fallen from 518 million to 475 million, alarming numbers for those in the industry.
