Our table will feature the Junior Golf program and provide a sign up sheet for those who want to become a member, donate to our foundation, or help with our junior golf clinics. Give-aways include golf tees and monogrammed koozies. For the raffle, we will give away a box of Lady Bird logo golf balls. We anticipate that FMS and FHS golf team members will be on hand to add to the fun. Food and wine will be provided by the Red Bird Grill.
The next annual membership meeting of FOLB will be Wednesday, March 7 at 5:30 PM in the Cardinal Room at Lady Bird Johnson Golf Club. Election of a new Board of Directors will precede a presentation of our expanded Junior Golf program. Guest speakers will include Jim Penn and Brian Featherstone who will present their vision to introduce “the world’s greatest game” to all youngsters from third grade through high school. Inspired by the success of our local girls and boys high school golf teams, the program seeks to provide mentorship, instruction, and equipment. Other presentations will be made by Clinton Bailey, Assistant City Manager, and Chris Meade, PGA, our new General Manager.
We especially invite young golfers, parents, and all of the golfing community. Learn about the future of golf in Fredericksburg, sign up to join and participate in FOLB, and meet the new Lady Bird staff.
