Summer is in Full Swing!

The Aztec Chamber of commerce assisted with the Grand Opening & Ribbon Cutting for the Aztec Municipal Golf Course at Hidden Valley on June 13. The entire Aztec City Commission was there for the Ribbon Cutting and to Tee off together during the festivities! We enjoyed hamburgers and hotdogs by Ruby’s in the Valley as we sat on the patio and enjoyed the beautiful weather. If you haven’t been out to see the course, the trip is well worth it! With the additional rains this year and maintenance work done by City of Aztec crews the course is in beautiful shape and the greenery is breath taking. Just be careful the hummingbirds don’t take you out as they buzz around the flower baskets on the patio!
