It's so nice to see the cooler weather coming our way. It has been a great summer with temperatures in the mid-90's and some frequent rain showers.
Annual LGA Member/Member
The LGA held their annual LGA Member/Member on September 18th and 19th. After round one the team of Joan Spear and Cheryl Wood were tied for the lead in Flight 1 with Marian Ezell and Michelle Tomlinson. Maria Swann and Sherry Brown led day one by three strokes for Flight 2. The eclectic format is played for this event so on day two they have the same pins, same tees, and players are given the chance to improve their hole from day one. With a great round, Marian Ezell and Michelle Tomlinson won Flight 1 and Maria Swann and Sherry Brown won Flight 2 of the LGA Member/ Member. Coming in second was Ariana Almond and Margaret Wheless in Flight 1 and Amaya D’Amore and Nancy McKeen in Flight 2. Congratulations to all the winners and great play!
The course has been in great condition all summer; hats off to Scott’s crew for maintaining the course and keeping it so lush. The course is being overseeded once again and they have begun laying seed on the tee boxes and fairways. The course has been closed from Monday, September 30th to October 2nd for preparation and laying the seed. We will be cart path only for up two weeks in order to water and germinate the seed. By winter we will have a beautiful, lush course to play on again. We have some great events lined up immediately following overseeding, so get ready for some beautiful Fall play. Several events are in October and November and we hope that all members will participate this year. The first big event is the 3rd Annual Rally for the Cure Breast Cancer Awareness tournament on October 23rd. Next, the MGA has their two-day MGA Championship to determine the overall gross and net winner of the year on Saturday and Sunday, October 26th and 27th. Following closely on October 31st we are hosting the Halloween Glow-in-the-Dark Challenge. Players will shotgun in the evening at 5:00 p.m. and play 9 holes. Dinner will then be served while staff prepares for the final 9 holes of the evening, complete with glowsticks and glow-in-the-dark balls. It’s sure to be lots of fun and the best dressed team for Halloween wins a prize! In November we will host the three-day James Avery Hill Country Classic on November 8th, 9th and 10th. This two-man event is open to all amateurs and is a great, traditional event to play in.

The 2013 Futurity Men's Member Guest
The 2013 Futurity Men’s Member Guest was held at the end of September and we had fun meeting new guests and watching some fantastic golf. The men played for two days, taking their combined quota for both days. The three-day all inclusive event was very successful with some of the best food, hospitality, and course conditions in the Hill Country. The staff would like to thank all the members who played in this event.
