The GMS maintenance staff here at Pueblo del Sol would like to thank Clay Mckinley for his work and knowledge the last six months. Unfortunately for us an opportunity at another course came up near family and friends that Clay just couldn't pass up. We grudgingly understand(hehe :) and only wish the best to a first rate superintendent and his family. Best of Luck Clay !
