Antelope Hills manager resigns
PRESCOTT - Paul Parker, the manager of the City of Prescott's Antelope Hills Golf Course since 2004, stepped down Friday.
In a press release on Tuesday, the city announced that Parker had submitted his resignation, effective immediately.
Parker, a Class A PGA professional, cited "personal and professional reasons" for his resignation.
"The job has been filled with a great number of challenges and obstacles that have been addressed, and in most cases met, and overcome with a number of significant successes," Parker said in the city press release.
City Manager Steve Norwood said that under Parker's management, the golf course "is in the best condition ever and is recognized as one of the state's top 10 municipals." He added, "Antelope Hills will continue to be a boon to our increasing tourism efforts and host to the many high-profile tournaments held there each year."
Human Resources Director Jolaine Jackson said the city plans to use the services of the PGA to help with the transition.
"They keep a database of eligible candidates within their membership and they will send out an announcement on our behalf," Jackson said. In addition, the city will post the job opening throughout the region.
