  • Anast, Martinson lead after day one

    With a big opening round in the men’s championship flight, Kurt Anast will head into today’s play as the man to catch.
    Anast had the low round of the tournament Saturday, a red-hot 3-under par to take the day-one lead at the Los Alamos City Championship.
    The City Championship will continue at 9 a.m. today. The tournament is being played at Los Alamos Golf Course.
    Scores from the tournament were all over the place Saturday, with a 14-stroke spread in the men’s title flight and a 21-shot spread in the senior men’s flight. Early last week, a leak had been detected in an underground pipe that feeds LAGC’s front nine holes and watering the course has been an issue — work begins to repair the leak Monday.

  • Water leak detected at LAGC on Monday

    An underground pipe leak was found Monday near Los Alamos Golf Course and will need to be repaired.
    A main line that supplies water to the south side of LAGC was found to be leaking either near or underneath Diamond Drive, but the exact location isn’t yet known. The leak affects watering on holes 1-10 and 16-18.
    LAGC said it is watering those holes with a 1,000-gallon tanker borrowed from the county’s Parks department and the course will have a 3,000-gallon tanker from the Roads and Streets department at its disposal.
    A press release from LAGC warned, however, that the course, particularly the fairways, may show signs of stress until repair work is completed. Repair work is scheduled to begin this Monday.
