Notebook: Lubbock Girl Named High School Player of the Year

Rachael Dansby of Lubbock has been named national Girls Player of the Year by the National High School Golf Coaches Association. In announcing the honor, the NHSGCA said of Rachael:

This past spring, Dansby helped Lubbock Christian School win the 4A district and state championships. She was the individual district champion and runner-up at the state championship. She has earned All-State honors three times and was an NHSGCA All-American last year. Rachael shot a career low round of 65 in 2007. A member of the National Honor Society, Rachael has tutored other students in chemistry, geometry and algebra. She was junior class vice-president in 2006-07 and president of 4-H. She is a talented musician and singer.

How she finds the time to golf, I'll never know. I flunked chemistry, geometry and algebra, and I still can't find enough time for golf ...

Other items of note:

  • After two months closed due to waterlogging, the Masters Course at Houston's Bear Creek Golf World is open again.
  • San Antonio's brand new Municipal Golf Association - which will gradually take over management of the city's munys, a process that will include shutting down Brackenridge Park Golf Course for a redesign - is finally up and running.
  • In his Backspin blog for the Austin American-Statesmen, Kevin Robbins takes a look at the Golf World college golf preview issue, in which Texas colleges don't fare so well.
  • Have you ever played a course, checked the scorecard for the No. 1 handicap hole, and thought to yourself, "No way is that the toughest hole"? The Houston Chronicle explains why the No. 1 handicap hole isn't necessarily supposed to be the toughest hole.
  • A nearly $1 billion project is slated for Ingleside, near Live Oak Park and close to the soon-to-be-closed Naval Station Ingleside, that will include a golf course in addition to all the homes, plus a marina, town center and condos.
