ages Golfing in the 90s is a lifetime sport for four regulars at Landa Park Golf Course By THOMAS GODLEY Sports Editors They average 85 years of age but you wouldnt guess it the way these men get around the golf course From hole to hole they step to the greens taking limber swings at the ball and humorous jabs at each other They can be found at Landa Park most Tuesdays and Fridays these four close friends who make it a point to meet for some exercise fresh air and scenery The sport has drawn them together over the last 15 years Locals say the oldtimers are proof that golf knows no age limit Its a game that people can play for a life said Bill Halbcrt Landa Park Golf Course manager There arent too many sports like that These guys have been coming out here without fail since I can remember We have quite a few older golfers who come out but I think these four gentlemen are the oldest group that show up on a regular The men carry 34 years of experience among them and each can boast of playing a good game of golf On fair days the foursome plays six to nine holes If the weather fails they settle for three Sometimes the game is skins but often its every man for himself Afterwards the long time friends take the ritual walk to the club house for a beer or two and a tally of the days wagers The stakes arent says Frank Hig gins 81 a retired cartographer Ten cents a hole is all We may Ipse forty cents or win forty cents We usually haggle over who pays for the Jim Eakle 79 the youngest of the group recalls when Landa Golf course went from a 9hole to an 18hole course in the late 1960s This course has improved every year since Ive been he said The big dif ference came with irri gation and enhance ments to streams that cut through the grounds They do a great job of keeping up the greens and the pic turesque Stewart Browning 91 and Ian Walker who turned 90 last Fri day go back a bit fur ther in the course his tory They talk of the 1930s when pastures and cattle stood where the greens now stretch Walker lived right across the street at the time and still resides within a mile of Landa He remembers how funding for the park stemmed from the Works Progress Administration under president Franklin Roosevelt The program provided jobs and built public facilities during the Depression Over the years Landa Golf Course has under gone several changes and become a topnotch HeraldZeitung photo by THOMAS GODLEY Golfers from left Frank Higglns Ian Walker Jim Eakle and Stewart Browning have been coming out to Landa Golf course together for 15 years They average 85 years old golf course Higgins added Local resident arent the only ones benefiting from the site Vacationers from across the country return year after year and they establish ongoing friendships with New Braunfels golfers The golf course also is a rich source for local groups like the Legends mainly golfers over 55 and the Landa Ladys Golf Associa tion which schedules competition throughout the year The women are a lot more organized than the Stewart notes The four friends say competition is not a priority at this stage of their lives They agree Stewart is the best golfer in the group but hes not one to keep a close tab on the scores The idea is to spend a day in the outdoors They each hold season passes to the facility and you can bet next Tuesday they will be the old est guys
