The Heart of Texas Golf Association

The Heart of Texas Golf Association held its weekly Hully Gully Tournament last Thursday. Several other community activities on this same day seemed to hold down the participation as only 32 golfers signed up. The winning team, with a 9-under-par score of 27, was Barry Jackson, Gabe Moreno, Tommy Ruiz and Liz Rudder. Three teams tied for second place with scores of 28. Claiming the second place prize on a scorecard playoff was the team of Daniel Jones, L.A. Gotcher, Mike (Swede) Carlson and Ted Morton. Other teams with scores of 28 were Raymond Rubio, Tommy Howell, Jack Roberts and Joe Carrigan; and Ray Hawkins, David Graves, Abel Ledezma and Jamie Graves. The regularly scheduled monthly 18-hole Hully Gully Tournament was held Sunday, May 14. Since it was Mothers Day, the participation was light with only 32 golfers but it did not diminish the fun. Winning first place with a score of 57 was the team of Mike (Swede) Carlson, Tom Hollingsworth, John McNeely and Denise Nichols. Second place, with a score of 58, went to the team of Jack Roberts, Clay Jones, Bo McClary and Chere Agnew (guest of Jack Roberts). Congratulations to all the winners. The Memorial Day Tournament is nearly full. The field is limited to 128 individuals and 125 spots have already been filled. Invitations were sent to former out-of-town participants who traditionally make up over half of the total field. Local golfers can pick up entry forms in the golf shop. If you are planning to play in this big annual event, you should get your entry form and money turned in right away. You have probably noticed the golf course is looking better now that Craig Steffens has returned to active duty. His help is very obvious. In addition, the tank on hole number eight has now been cleaned out so it will hold it a lot of water (if we ever get enough rain!). We hope to get the creek bed cleaned out soon as well. Just like all the farmers and ranchers, we golfers recognize that now is the time to get these jobs done and be ready for that big rain when it comes.
