We have made a lot of progress over the last 12 months, but the fight is far from over. It’s time to turn up the heat!
Lions Municipal Golf Course is Austin’s oldest and most beloved public golf course, a treasured urban green space recently recognized as a nationally significant civil rights historical site. It has also been named to the National Trust for Historic Places 11 Most Endangered Historic Places. Our city is in danger of losing this invaluable property to development, but Muny can still be saved with your support.
“This is an iconic Austin treasure, a place where Ben Hogan and Harvey Penick battled Morris Williams Jr. and Ed Hopkins, where Sandra Haynie of O. Henry and LPGA fame won four city championships, where Crenshaw and Tom Kite honed their Hall of Fame games, and where two young black men who caddied asked to play a round at Muny in 1950 and thankfully were not denied. Hard to put a price on all that.” – Kirk Bohls, Austin American
