Museum golf tournament pays tribute to Ed Cable


The eighth annual LBJ Museum of San Marcos golf tournament fundraiser, scheduled Saturday, June 12 at Quail Creek Country Club, will pay tribute to the late Edwin “Ed” Cable of San Marcos who passed away Nov. 24 at the age of 82.

Cable, who is credited as founder of the golf tournament, served many years on the museum board and worked hard to get it opened to the public in December of 2006.
Since its beginning, the tournament has been a valuable source of museum operating money.

The tournament’s 2010 director, museum board treasurer Theresa Schwartz says 11 teams are confirmed for this year’s competition.

According to Schwartz, silver sponsors thus far include Ted Breihan Electric Company, Carbajal and Associates, CenturyLink, Elliott Electric Supply Company, the Austin-based Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson, LLP law firm and local news website. Although not fielding a team, Ed Cable’s children – Mary Kaye, Pamela, Betsy and Mark – are gold-level sponsors. Mrs. Cable donated several items to be raffled at the tournament in her late husband’s honor.

Scheduled back on the green for the tournament are last year’s top three placing teams – the first place Insurance Agency of San Marcos, second place Ted Breihan Electric and third place John Clarke’s Farm Bureau Insurance team.

The tournament features a four-person Florida scramble format. Check-in will begin at 7:30 a.m. Golfers will tee-off with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. Plaques will be awarded to the first, second and third place teams. Individual golfers receive plaques for the longest drive, as well as closest to the pin. Each golfer will receive a door prize and all participating can purchase raffle tickets throughout the day.

A barbecue chicken lunch will be provided by veteran barbecue chef David Peterson, Hays County’s Precinct 1 constable, who coordinates San Marcos’ annual Juneteenth Barbecue Cook-Off.
