Bringing Up Golf’s Next Generation

This summer’s Boot Camp attracted a record 24 campers ages 14 and under for four days of golf instruction and other recreational activities. Members’ children, grandchildren, and their friends enjoyed expert instruction on the full swing, pitching, chipping, putting and golf course etiquette from the Boot Ranch golf professionals. The kids dramatically increased their skills while cultivating self-confidence, new friendships and a love of the game.

At Boot Ranch, however, the commitment to junior golf goes way beyond summer camp.

The Boot Ranch Scholarship Fund each year supports the educational ambitions of young golfers in the area with Tommy Hale Memorial Scholarships. For the past several years, Boot Ranch has donated new golf bags to each player on the high school team and hosted clinics at our 34-acre golf Practice Park.

A group of Boot Ranch members recently led the charge to restart the Junior Golf Program in Fredericksburg by teaming with the Friends of Lady Bird (Golf Course) Foundation. This three-year, $250,000 initiative will introduce and teach the game of golf to all interested juniors in the area. This summer, more than 50 juniors are signed up for the free bi-weekly clinics led by Boot Ranch and Lady Bird PGA professionals. A Fredericksburg Juniors team of 7 to 13 year-olds, including eight Boot Ranch kids, is competing in 6-hole Saturday afternoon traveling competitions. The Junior Golf program also supports the 25 girls and boys in the Fredericksburg High School golf program.

If you’re interested in lending financial support to the Fredericksburg Junior Golf Program, checks payable to the FOLB Foundation may be sent to 341 Golfers Loop, Fredericksburg, TX 78624. FOLB Foundation is a non-profit exempt from Federal income tax under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Our Second Home

"We love Boot Ranch! Everyone is so welcoming, warm and helpful. We thought when we joined that it would be an occasional go and play golf weekend place, but find that each week we can’t wait to go back. It really is our second home."

A Happy Place

"My wife calls Boot Ranch her 'happy place.' I love it, our kids love it; it is a place where there is something for everyone to enjoy. Best of all, our young daughters have the opportunity for outdoor adventures, something that is not readily available living in a big city."

AN INCREDIBLE STAFF

"We travel a lot, and this is the first home we’ve ever owned outside our own residence. We knew when we got here that we wanted to be part of it. The staff is just incredible and they take such good care of you. Everybody knows you, and they’re here to please you and make sure you have a great time."

A Happy Place

“Every time we go there, the sky at night, seeing the stars, you just don’t get that in the city. We just love it. It’s breathtaking. You forget about that living around so much light pollution.”

A Happy Place

“We went bike riding one time at dusk and had stopped in the valley to take a breather when my oldest daughter had a deer come right up to her. When does that ever happen?"

The Beauty of the Course

"The changes to the course are both subtle and striking. The new greens look great and putt true and the sand traps really show off the beauty of the course."
