A four-person team fielded by San Marcos Mayor Susan Narvaiz captured first place with a low score of 57 at the eighth annual Lyndon Baines Johnson Museum of San Marcos Golf Tournament Saturday, June 12 at Quail Creek Country Club.
Playing on the mayor’s winning team were her husband 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 PEC General Manager Juan Garza’s team that posted 72.
Insurance Agency of San Marcos’ Connie Fite won the closest to the pin award in the women’s division. In the men’s division, Butler Manufacturing Company’s Darby Howle won closest to the pin.
Dead Last’s Michelle Stern won the longest drive in the women’s division while Philips-San Marcos Operations’ golfer Gilbert Luera had the longest drive in the men’s division.
Seventeen teams participated in the museum fundraiser which was dedicated to the memory of long-time museum board member Ed Cable who passed away in November of 2009. Cable started the tournament. Playing for the first time were the mayor’s team, a City of San Marcos Community Service team, Dead Last, Blanco River Village Bigelow Homes and a team from the Austin law firm of Linebarger, Goggan, Blair and Simpson LLP.
Receiving special recognition at the tournament were silver sponsors Ted Breihan Electric Company; Lupe Carbajal and Associates; CenturyLink; Elliott Electric Supply Company; Linebarger, Goggan, Blair and Simpson LLP; and Scott Gregson’s San Marcos Local Newes.com, Although they did not field a team, the children of Ed Cable were gold sponsors for the tournament.
LBJ Museum Board President Pat Murdock made special presentations to Quail Creek Country Club’s John Ferguson Jr. who provided guidance during the planning and conduct of the tournament and San Marcos’ Precinct 1 Constable David Peterson who provided the barbecued chicken for lunch.
“We are indebted to Quail Creek Country Club and its staff — particularly John Ferguson Jr. — for helping make the tournament a success. Tournament Director Theresa Schwartz and I are non-golfers, so we needed more than a little advice. We are also indebted to David Peterson for providing the barbecued chicken,” Murdock said, adding that Peterson has promised brisket for up to 100 golfers next year.Email | Print
