Not many games go as swimmingly as you expect, but the two wins the Topper teams shared over the Scorpions sure seemed like a walk in the park.

The first set of the two wins was the JV game in which the boys wheeled past Moriarty with a 26 point win. The boy’s lost their advantage at times but kept a comfortable lead during most of the game.

Los Alamos Golf Course has closed for the season effective Nov. 29.

The turf grass has entered into a dormant period and does not readily repair itself. The decision to close the golf course, at this time, has been made in an effort to protect the course and create the best possible playing conditions when it reopens.

Play will resume as soon as weather and turf conditions allow. This past year Los Alamos Golf Course experienced terrific playing conditions throughout the season. Thanks to all for understanding. 

The Los Alamos Golf Shop will remain open, new golf shop hours
