Eiguren to direct golf at Genoa Lakes

Special to the Tribune

Lou Eiguren, one of the most familiar names in Northern Nevada and California golf, has joined the Golf Club at Genoa Lakes as director of golf.

“I’m looking forward to joining the team at Genoa Lakes and working with owners Mario and Diane Antoci to help accomplish their vision for the course, customer service and operations excellence,” Eiguren said. “Their commitment to quality and golf tradition is evidenced by all the new facilities and improvements taking place at Genoa Lakes.”

Director of golf and partner at Wolf Run Golf Club in Reno since 1996, the 57-year-old Eiguren is best known and regarded locally for his work as head golf professional at Edgewood Tahoe from 1986 through 1996 and at the Olympic Club in San Francisco from 1968 to 1981.

Eiguren also served as head pro with Castlewood Country Club in Pleasanton, Calif., from 1983 to 1986 and at Ruby View Golf Course in Elko from 1981 to 1983.

The 1967 graduate of the University of Nevada has been a Class “A” Professional Golf Association since 1973 and also is a member of the National Golf Course Owners Association.

In recent years, the honors have poured in for Eiguren. He was selected by his peers as the 1995 NCPGA Golf Professional of the year and has been a three-time winner of the NCPGA Merchandiser of the Year Award and the 1995 California Golf Writers Association Golf Professional of the Year.

More than $8 million in new clubhouse, golf shop, restaurant/banquets and on-course improvements will be completed at Genoa Lakes in June.
