The $2 million renovation of all 18 holes and practice facilities at the Lady Bird Golf Course will transform not only the golf course but the economy in Fredericksburg. The impact on the 42-year-old course is astounding. New greens, bunkers, fairway grass, and facilities will attract golfers who have bypassed Fredericksburg to golf and other courses in the Hill Country.

The Visitors and Convention Bureau of the City of Fredericksburg encouraged the $2 million investment to benefit tourism in the city. According to Ignatius Garcia with KXAN in Fredericksburg, the facilities will bring in more tourism, conventions, charities, and major events that will greatly impact the economy. Garcia quotes Alan Wooley, the director of golf at the Lady Bird Golf Course.

“There is over $1 million from economic impact just from the wages that are paid to the employees here at Lady Bird.” Fifteen employees tend golf course activities. Wooley also talked about the anticipated sales tax revenue for the city. Besides immediate revenue, the municipal course expects to turn a profit within three years.

The par-72 Lady Bird Johnson Golf Course features 6,432-yards of championship play, 20 hitting stations, 2 practice greens, and a practice bunker. Rolling hills of tree-lined fairways, beautiful live oak trees, the meandering Live Oak Creek, and three lakes accent the picturesque golf course. Inside the clubhouse, golfers enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the Red Bird Grille.

Except Monday mornings, the Lady Bird Johnson Golf Course is open seven days a week. It is located out State Highway 16 South inside of the Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park. Contact the golf course at 341 Golfers Loop, Fredericksburg, Gillespie County, TX 78624; Phone 830-997-4010.
