Tour Descriptions and Information

NOTICE: Due to circumstances beyond our control, those early registrants paying less than the final price for a meal, or activity, will be asked to make up any difference at the reunion. If one has paid for a tour or activity that does not occur because of a lack of participation, or paid too much because an original price has been reduced, he or she will be given a refund at the registration table in Fredericksburg with an association check.








For all of you who love the links, an event has arranged for Tuesday morning, 0900 tee time, at the Lady Bird Johnson course.   There’s a lot to like about the new Lady Bird Johnson Golf Course. Thanks to nearly $2 million in renovations, it’s been transformed into one of the finest municipal courses in Texas. The course has been lengthened to a 6,686 yards, Par 71 design. Fairways have been carefully sculpted to reward good shot placement. Greens are firm and fast. The course now has 46 bunkers and water on 10 of the 18 holes.   The golf outing will be individual play.  Cost will be $60.00  per person.



When registering for golf, be sure to include your Handicap, or the scores of your last three rounds of golf. Rental clubs are available at the course. The $60.00 Golf fee includes your greens fee and money for prizes.  There will be prizes for first, second, and third place, and a custom made driver for the winner. For additional information contact Bob Mattingly at E-mail    bobc130d6@yahoo.com    or phone 321-482-7115.  (Eastern Time).
