WEST BOUNTIFUL — The golf pro of 20 years at Lakeside Golf Course in West Bountiful has announced his retirement, according to a press release from the city.
The man, who is alleged to have made threats against city officials, will step down today, July 1.
“West Bountiful City expresses gratitude to Mr. Class for his lengthy service to the city, its residents, and the public generally,” the press release reads.
Problems with Class started when he allegedly made the threats, and he has been on leave since. In the meantime, police increased patrols in the area of the golf course, Chief Todd Hixon said last week.
“Kelly Class has been a part of Lakeside Golf Course for years,” said Mayor Ken Romney, “and we wish him well in future endeavors. We look forward to continued success at the golf course, which is the home of a regional professional long drive contest and is host to many tournaments.”
The city has started to look for a new golf course director, the release said.
