A return to the good ol' days could be at hand, however, thanks to the return of good ol' John Clay.
"What's wrong with living in the past?"said Clay, who was head pro at Woodlake from March 1978 to October 1985.
He returned to Woodlake on June 1 after spending the last 18 years at other area facilities.
Clay resigned as head pro at Brackenridge to lead a group of seven investors that purchased Woodlake from Southern Golf Properties.Clay will serve as majority owner and director of golf at the semi-private facility.
"It's tough to recreate the past," Medina said, "but if anyone can accomplish that I feel confident that John Clay can."
Time has definitely not stood still since Clay left Woodlake to become the head pro at Northcliffe Country Club.
He was the youngest head pro in San Antonio when he first joined Woodlake as a 27-year-old in 1978.Now he returns at 53 as a Quarter Century Club member of the PGA of America after 27 years in the business.
"The key to these golf courses is to take care of people," Clay said."People are starving for attention.They want good, friendly service."
Clay believes he can do that now that he has left the City of San Antonio.Like all head pros at the city's municipal golf facilities, Clay was a caretaker rather than a club professional.
"Coming back here allows me to be a golf pro again," Clay said.
Clay's plans including bringing back such Woodlake staples as the Dos Amigos, Tuesday Guest and Thursday Night Scramble tournaments while maintaining green fees of $30 on weekdays and $35 on weekends.
"John always had a lot of energy and enthusiasm," said PGA of America career consultant Bill Keys, who was head pro at Tapatio Springs in the early 1980s.
