Steve Anthony, 49, is the new Woodland Hills Golf Course  Clubhouse Manager in Fort Scott. The course is owned and operated by the City of Fort Scott.

Woodland Hills Golf Course, 2414 S. Horton, Fort Scott.

He replaces Shannon O’Neil, who left in July.

Anthony feels that he and Doug Guns, the golf course superintendent,  are a good team.

“I feel I have a good grasp of things and if things come up that need two heads to make a decision, Doug and I make the decision as we are pretty much on the same page and we make our decision on what’s best for the club and or our member’s,” he said.

Anthony’s hometown is Parkersburg, West Virginia and he is married to Stephanie Anthony.

“I have been an avid golfer since I was a young kid back in West Virginia,” he said. “I have been in Fort Scott for nine years now.”

“I have always had a love for the sport of golf and when the opportunity came to pursue the golf course (position) here, I jumped at the chance to take it on,” he said.

“When I started, I knew I wanted to do some different things that had not been done here,” Anthony said.  “For example, having watch parties for National Football League games and it has grown each week. My hope is once the colder weather sets in we will have more folks come out to join us for games as they will be tired of just sitting at home.”

He enjoys coming to work each day, getting to do something that he loves, Anthony said.

“The Woodland Hills Golf Course is in really beautiful shape as Doug (Guns)and his crew do a great job making it look beautiful,” he said.

In the community, Anthony has been involved with Special Olympics, a large sports organization for people with intellectual disabilities.

“I, along with Bourbon County Undersheriff Ben Cole, host a golf tournament each year to benefit Special Olympics,” he said. “I am also on the Board of Directors for Special Olympics Kansas.”

He enjoys coming to work each day, getting to do something that he loves, Anthony said.

Anthony can be reached at 620-223-5060 or his cell phone at 620-215-2392.


Golf carts that can be rented are lined up near the entrance to the Woodland Hills Golf Clubhouse.
