City Golf Legend Honored

Mayor Berry declares December 9, 2011 "Guy Wimberly Day"

For more than four decades, Guy Wimberly served local golfers in the City of Albuquerque and around the state. He and his partner took over Arroyo Del Oso Golf Course in 1969 and turned it into what Golf Digest called one of the "Top 50 Municipal Faclities to Play." Mr. Wimberly - also an accomplished golfer, winning the first ever WAC Individual Championship in 1963 - continues to be involved with golf and cites his commitment to developing local youth into golf professionals as one of his proudest accomplishments.
