Golf etiquette dictates that all players do the following:
 
*  Repair all ball marks on the greens
*  Repair all divots on tee boxes and fairways
Observe the white lines for carts near the green
Slow players should let other players play through
*  Observe the 90 degree rule for carts on the fairway
*  Rake the sand traps you enter and LEAVE the rake in the trap
The golf course is our main asset and we should all treat it that way.

News from the WGA:

2017

 

Welcome FBCC WGA members! I am pleased to be your President this year and looking forward to making and sharing many friendships and memories.  For new members, I’ll give you a little info about our WGA.
 

Our play day is every Tuesday at 9:00 a.m.  (weather permitting).  If you would like to play, please call the Pro Shop (281 342-8368) by 8:30 Tuesday morning and sign up.  We also have a Saturday play day if there are members who want to play (or who can’t play on Tuesday). 


We have several tournaments scheduled during the year, either all ladies or a combo of guys/ladies, so please put those on your calendar when the Tournament Schedule comes out.  The WGA also plays in the Southwest Interclub, which includes a total of 6 clubs (including but not limited to Sweetwater, Pecan Grove and Sugar Creek).  We play the third Thursday of each month starting in March.  It's partnership play and a lot of fun as you get to meet members of other clubs and play at different courses.


Our WGA Board meetings are scheduled the first Tuesday of each month after golf (except holidays, which would be the 2nd Tuesday of each month).  We have lunch and go over our business for the month.


I sincerely hope all new members and old members will come out and play with us on Tuesday (or Saturday) and participate with us in our tournaments.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact any of our members or the officers listed below.

WSIGA News:


MGA Members 50 Years of Age and Older!

The WSIGA will continue its 2017 season at Falcon Point, on Tuesday, June 20th.  Eight clubs, Weston Lakes, Sweetwater, Falcon Point, Sugar Creek, Willow Fork, Fort Bend, Pecan Grove and Quail Valley compete.  This expands your opportunity to play some of the best golf courses in the area at a nominal fee in a competitive (but friendly) setting. 

We play a Stableford format with FULL handicaps and the best 5 out of our 8 players' scores will be used for figuring our competition results.  A continuous, cumulative correction factor is used to even out the disparity in handicaps/course difficulty.

For more info, go to the Westside Interclub Golf Association (WSIGA) website or ask any of the guys who have participated.  The bottom line is it is a lot of fun, it's a chance to compete at different venues at a great price ($50), and a chance to meet some new folks.  So, sign up in the Pro Shop, first come, first serve, and come on out, we need seniors of all handicap ranges.

Del Webb News:


This liveoak tree is one of 43 trees given to the club by Del Webb homeowners.

Del Webb Trees Uproot and Move to FBCC

Some of the trees which were planted between sidewalks and streets in Del Webb Sweetgrass were determined to not be a good idea after all, as they could heave the concrete walks and curbs.  Stock member, Frank Hayward resides in Del Webb Sweetgrass.  He worked with Del Webb, who were good enough to consider us a viable recipient and make over three dozen trees available to us for transplanting.

The trees have been planted all over the course, in tree lines and in other areas which will be beautified by them as they grow.  So far only one tree is showing any stress from being transplanted.

The club's members, golf associations, board of directors and management are grateful for this gift from the many Sweetgrass homeowners who originally paid for the trees and now for having them removed.

The Del Web Sweetgrass community continues to grow around us.    Here are a few photos from the golf course:


As the landscaping in the front of these new homes on Persimmon Grove matures, the neighborhood increasingly reflects the beauty of the golf course. 

 


Zoom across #6 and #5 fairways to homes with Golf Course frontage and some pretty landscaping along the creek. 

 


Looking across #15 Tee Box and Rabbs Bayou, the neighborhood takes shape. 

History Corner

 

A snowy day at the entrance gate of Fort Bend Country Club in 1973

 

 Artist's rendering from about 1964

Back in 2010 after the tornadic winds vacuumed the roof off the ballroom, the walls had to have the sheetrock replaced.  While the walls were open we took the opportunity to run some new wiring for the phones and computer network, in the small gap between the office ceiling and the flat roof above.  The space and everything in it were buried an inch deep in the crumbled, lightweight concrete which had fallen there from a previous roof replacement.

The only thing visible in this long forgotten space was a green corner of something poking out of the dust.  It was a full arm reach to just touch this one corner.  Between thumb and forefinger the object was slowly pulled free and toward the steel structure which blocked it’s removal.  After a little of the dust was brushed off it revealed itself to be an intact glass picture frame about 21” by 32”.  It was too wide to remove through the opening but above the 12” steel beam there was a 1” horizontal slot which was just high and long enough to get the frame through but due to its height was very awkward to feed through from the other side.  Eventually the frame was freed.  The glass was caked solid so we washed one corner of it and discovered that it was a watercolor.  Thinking that it was worth saving just for the frame, we cleaned it up.

When the artist’s rendition was revealed it took a minute to figure out what it was.  It was similar to the clubhouse but more like a version that had slipped through from another dimension, like in a Rod Serling Twilight Zone.  It will remain a mystery why the artwork was stored where it was but the mystery of what it is, is no longer.  It is the clubhouse that never was....in some respects.   Our clubhouse was built in 1966 and the new 19th Hole added in 1991.

It is a valuable piece of history because it reveals how ideas come together, step by step, as the reward for the work done by folks who work together over time to create a more beautiful tomorrow.  If you would like to see the original, it is on display in the FBCC front office.
