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.

Dear Davis Clipper... (yes I am mad)..the alleged threats did NOT lead to his retirement... get your story right or don't write it! These are FALSE accusations and you should be ashamed at printing this article with a title like that... why don't you just drive a knife into his back... geesh.. anything for a story..

Since Kelly is not able to respond I will.... Kelly did NOT threaten anyone, that is a made up story..and the fact that patrol has been down there for the past months is utterly ridiculous!!... This is my story... THEY.. (the city) wanted to get rid of Kelly's position and being as Kelly was a long term great employee they could not just fire him... so they have to come up with something to dis-credit him to make it look like they (the city) are not the bad guys.. They are the bad guys.. they took a very dedicated hard working man who truly cared for his employees more than himself, who had a life that was finally on a good path and almost destroyed him and others, BUT, they didn't.. so you can print what the city would like... but when it comes right down to knowing the truth...his friends and family and the people who knew him around the course, truly know what kind of person he is and at the end of the day THAT is whats important and THAT is why we can can go to sleep at night with a clear conscious.. can the city administration, the police chief, the public works director, etc??? I think not...
