After 28 years, Scott Alexander will step down at Gold Mountain

Updated: July 3, 2012

Scott Alexander, the longtime director of golf at Gold Mountain Golf Complex near Bremerton, Wash., has decided to step down after 28 years.

Alexander was hired as the head professional 28 years ago at Gold Mountain, which only had one course at the time. But a second course, called the Olympic Course, was added and Gold Mountain has become one of the top golf complexes in the Pacific Northwest.

And along the way, Alexander has helped bring in some big-time events to the area.

Gold Mountain has hosted the USGA’s Junior Championships as well as the USGA Men’s Public Links. There have also been NCAA Tournaments and other college events at the course as well.

When Alexander came on in 1984, he said Gold Mountain was virtually a secret to the golfers on the other side of the Puget Sound. But not any more. Along with the Cascade and Olympic Courses, there is a fully stocked pro shop, clubhouse and a restaurant called Tucker’s.

Alexander will leave the city-owned facility when his contract expires at the end of the year. He will spend more time working with his golf cart company, which supplies carts to events throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Daryl Matheny, the head pro at Gold Mountain, has worked the past 16 years as Alexander’s business partner.
