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.

Tip of the Month

 

How to improve your golf self-talk: What do you say to yourself on the golf course?



Becoming more aware is the first step to improve your golf self talk.  Start taking control of what you say to yourself during your golf round and improve your golfing performance.  Many golfers have a negative critical voice inside their heads which will appear as soon as they make a mistake.  The good news is you do not have to listen to this voice.

1 - Decide to become more aware of it.  Do not get upset with your old critical voice just notice it at first.

2 - Imagine you have the best caddie inside your head.  Replace any unhelpful voice with the words of your best caddie.  Instead of, “you stupid idiot" your caddie would say, “OK forget it.  The best golfers make mistakes.  Now focus on your next shot.”

3 - Start to measure how good your inner voice is after each hole.  Give yourself a score from 1-10 and write it down on your score card.  This will help you become more and more aware of your inner voice.

WA News

FBCC Women's Association Dissolved

 

At the end of 2018 the Women's Association leadership informed us (the current management of the Fort Bend Country Club operations) that effective January 31, 2019, the association was to dissolve.  The ladies of the WA have enhanced the Country Club for many years and deserve all the gratitude we can impart to them.  Their collective entity is one that the staff, many members and the larger community, beyond, will miss.

2017 Annual WGA Meeting and Awards Luncheon

 

 

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 will 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 (281 232-7825) 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 cannot 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.

Results For WSIGA 2018

#1


Larry Davis, George Lising, Joey Perez (Falcon Point Golf Professional) and Jim Gentry
(Not Shown: Jim Stegemiller, Bobby Stegemiller, David Yannone, Charlie Neal and Ted Koen)

Details, above, originally posted at:
http://www.wsiga.org/results.htm

 

MGA Members 50 Years of Age and Older!

The WSIGA will begin its 2019 season in March.  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.

History Corner

 

The Son of FBCC Founder Passes

 

The father of Tom J. Fatjo Jr. was the primary founder of Fort Bend Country Club, in 1950.  He and 31 other founders created the Fort Bend Country Club (A Texas Non-Profit Corporation) on July 17th, 1950, in preparation for the purchase of the property, known today as Fort Bend Country Club.

Here is Tom J. Fatjo's signature, top, left on the Articles of Incorporation of Fort Bend Country Club.  Each of the 32 founders signed this historic document.

Here is Tom J. Fatjo, Sr., as featured in one of the historic scrap books of Fort Bend Country Club historian, Jacque Roberts.  He was, in fact, Member #1.

 

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 its 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.

 Pool:

The pool was professionally removed in November of 2017.   It was seldom used other than as an landscaping feature.  To remove it correctly would have cost the members the same as maintaining it for five or six years.  Now the new owner, HW 589 Holdings LLC, has removed it in accordance with to the highest engineering standards.  All concrete was broken out and hauled off.  Then the hole was cleaned up, back to the undisturbed soil.  A lab-tested backfill was trucked in and was each load was compressed with a heavy vibrating roller as the hole was filled.  The area was graded with a laser and then was then covered with St. Augustine sod.

 

Prepping the Equipment

Concrete is Broken Out

 

To break the concrete, this track hoe operator used the chunk of concrete which once served as the pool stairs and came out in one big piece, by lifting it about 30 feet and dropping it, repeatedly.  It shook the whole area.  Quite a few light bulbs needed replacement afterwards.

 

They were very careful to keep the soil free of any remnants of the building materials.

 

A week later:  What pool?  You sure we used to have a pool?  Must have been a while ago.
