TEXARKANA — The Texarkana mayor says he will manage a golf course rather than seek re-election.

Mayor Wayne Smith said Monday at City Hall that he would have run for a second term if he hadn't gotten the golf job. He announced he has taken a job as operational manager of the New Haven Golf Course.

He was elected mayor in 2010. His last day is Dec. 31.

Smith said he's a golfer and called the new job "an ideal situation." He added that he'd like to get his golf game into single digits.

Smith said former state Rep. David Haak's decision to run for mayor didn't influence his decision.
