Just six weeks ago, Fuller Lodge rang with impassioned speeches by 150 supporters and detractors of a proposal for improving the Los Alamos golf course. Designs proposed by the Golf Resource Group (GRG) would have virtually decimated trails bordering the course to create a championship style golf course. Outdoor enthusiasts were outraged.
So GRG took steps to create a win/win situation. GRG President Andy Staples met with three groups of open space users and one group of golfers, who offered input into what lines they were unwilling to cross and what their most critical goals were.
Staples then developed two alternatives, which received enthusiastic responses from the groups and seemed to garner approval during public discussion Tuesday night.
