The First Annual Gene Eubank Tribute Challenge was held at the Flying L Ranch Golf Club in Bandera on April 27, 2019. Gene, a longtime avid golfer and resident at the Flying L , was a great friend to many of us until his passing on April 15 of this year. The tournament’s opening ceremony included the dedication of a memorial tree just off the 10th tee.
The tournament was a 2-person scramble. Anita Kopplhuber and Sandi Johnston won the ladies division with a net 60, followed by a 63 by Louise Henson and Marilyn Dawson. Van Tom “Coach” Whatley and Roy Rodriguez won the men’s division with a net 62. Don Bateman and Larry Henson shot 63 to tie Woody Baker and Bob Haueter for second place. Jim Martin and Bob Bashaw took fourth with 65.
