It Runs in the Blackmar Family

Great golf, that is. The Corpus Christi Blackmars are led by Phil Blackmar, a 3-time winner on the PGA Tour. Phil's father, Fred, was a legendary club professional and teacher for decades in Corpus Christi, based at Gulf Winds Golf Course on the Naval Air Station base.

And then there's Carol Blackmar, Phil's wife, who just keeps racking up city titles. She's the women's golf coach at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi now, and she recently won her ninth Women's City Match Play championship. Carol has won quite a few city stroke-place titles, too. In fact, she's dominated women's golf in Corpus Christi for about 20 years now.

Is there any question that the next generation of Blackmars will be winning titles on the links?
