Bunkers so white you’ll need to wear shades!

Texas Star Golf Course is a 275-acre course spanning nearly 7,000 yards and is a par 71, guaranteeing a challenge to golfers of every level.  Course Architect Keith Foster strived to find the right balance between nature and golf.  In designing the course, Foster said that he tried to use the land’s natural terrain and features.  Hurricane Creek, clashes through the heavily wooded stie playing an integral part of holes 9, 11 and 18 while making a presence on 2, 8 and 10.  The course has a Hill Country feel.  Several holes have vistas with 40 to 50 feet rises and drops in elevation.

ABOUT THE TOURNAMENT

ALS_black-logo_trans__1_Frank Bennett with BC Hydro of Vancouver, BC, was a founding Board Member of USMA. He served as Chairman and played an important role in program development and USMA’s strategic plan. Several years ago he was stricken with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) and soon passed away. Frank loved golf and was a very important part of the annual conference and golf tournament. In 2006 the USMA Board of Directors decided to name the annual tournament in memory of Frank and designate the ALS Association as the tournament benefactor.
