The true colors of the golfing community at Robson Ranch keep coming through for all to see. This time, the recipient of the Men’s Golf Association’s philanthropic nature was the First Tee of Fort Worth. Spearheaded by Lawry Cohen, he and our director of golf, Craig Pullen, gathered together donations from the members of the Robson golfing community, and on Dec. 8, headed down to the First Tee of Fort Worth to deliver the bounty. Like the recent successful Toy Drive, Robson golfers donated beyond belief. The haul was epic to the tune of 23 sets of clubs, 15 slightly used golf bags, and two brand new bags, a practice putting mat, and no less than 30 single clubs including drivers, fairway woods, wedges, and hybrids. Added to that cache were 11 putters, 50 dozen golf balls, 4 training clubs, 5 pairs of golf shoes, 3 golf umbrellas, and 75 club covers of all brands and club designations. And to make sure the junior golfers felt comfortable on the course, 30 pieces of golf apparel for both men and women were donated, some of which were still in their original packaging.
You have made yourself proud Robson golfers. Although you may not hear them say thank you or see it in their eyes, know that on behalf of the First Tee of Fort Worth, and all the junior golfers who have access to some top-quality equipment, that you have made a significant impact.
