With great enthusiasm 84 golfers teed off at Boot Ranch for the first annual Junior Golf Foundation of Fredericksburg Golf Tournament. All participants received an official Junior Golf Foundation hat and divot tool and enjoyed food, wine, rum shots, plus healthy popcycles along the course. Many thanks to our sponsors for their support and fabulous prizes.
FOLB and the Junior Golf Foundation of Fredericksburg will participate in the next Chamber of Commerce FunAfterFive event to be held at Lady Bird Golf Club at 5-7PM on Thursday, September 20. 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.
