It was Europe vs. USA at Solheim Cup


The Ladies Golf Association (LGA) of Pecan Plantation is always up for some fun, and Tuesday a week ago was no exception.

LGA President Clara Garcia writes that the ladies played a “Solheim Cup Match” after dividing into two groups, Europe and the USA, and playing a match format. According to Clara, “We had a great time!”

The LGA has “front nine” play on the calendar for Tuesday, and the Men’s Golf Association plays “individual low gross/low net” on Thursday.

A big event comes for the LGA on September 24-26 when “The La Tee Esta” hits the fairways. Watch for more details as this date comes closer.


Wednesday morning’s Breakfast Club will receive a refresher course in Texas history as well as enjoy “Texas, the Big Picture” film from the IMAX theater of the Bullock Texas History Museum in Austin. Attendees of all ages are welcome. Come at 8 a.m. for breakfast and the program.



Lake Granbury Newcomers Club will commence a new year on Sept. 5 with a meeting in Pecan’s ballroom. The day will mark 35 years of friendship, and Helen Shorter, the founder of Newcomers, will attend along with several past club presidents.

Lunch will consist of quiche made from a recipe served many years ago when it was an uncommon dish in our area.

Groups within Newcomers focus on books, needlecrafts, home and garden, supper club, and games such as bridge, bunko, Mahjong, and hand and foot. Any female resident of Hood County, no matter how long she has lived here, is welcome to join.
