LBJ Museum announces golf tournament


The LBJ Museum of San Marcos will return to Quail Creek Country Club on June 12 for its eighth annual golf tournament fundraiser.

A key source of museum operating money, this year’s tournament is dedicated to the memory of the late Edwin “Ed” Cable, who passed away last Nov. 24.

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.

Golf teams, sponsors, raffle items and door prizes are currently solicited by museum board members. The signup deadline is June 4.

The tournament features a four-person Florida scramble format. Check-in will begin at 7:30 a.m. on the day of the tournament. 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. Door prizes will also be raffled off throughout the day.

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