Registration deadline for LBJ tourney nears


The team registration deadline is rapidly approaching for the LBJ Museum of San Marcos’s ninth annual golf tournament set for Quail Creek Country Club Saturday, June 11.

The deadline for tournament registration is June 4. Last year’s tournament, dedicated to one of the museum’s founders, the late Ed Cable, attracted 17 teams.

Golf teams, sponsors, raffle items and door prizes are needed. The tournament features a four-person Florida scramble format. Check-in will begin at 7:30 a.m. on June 11. Golfers will tee-off with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. Trophies 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.

This year’s participants are again in for a treat. Veteran barbecue “chef” David Peterson, Hays County’s Precinct 1 constable, who coordinates San Marcos’ annual Juneteenth Barbecue Cook-Off, will be providing brisket for lunch.

A four-person team fielded by then San Marcos Mayor Susan Narvaiz captured first place with a low score of 57. Playing on the mayor’s winning team were hubby Mike Narvaiz, Jerry Garcia, Gary Gilbert and Daniel Gibson. Second place went to CenturyLink’s team, composed of Domingo Medina, Luke Wester, Ronnie Saathosf and Noe Alvarado. John Clarke’s Farm Bureau Insurance team, with Clarke and teammates Robert Shroyer, Darrell Beakley and Mike Tate, was third for the second year in a row. Both teams posted 59s.

Team scores ranged from the 57 low to a high of 72. The self-titled “Dead Last” team, which scored a 70, wasn’t last. That honor went to then PEC General Manager Juan Garza’s team that posted 72.
