Spring Fling and Jimmy Walker Celebration

golfThe Club recently celebrated member Jimmy Walker’s three PGA Tour victories by honoring him at the annual Spring Fling Celebration. With over 180 people in attendance, the Club presented Jimmy with framed, commemorative Frys.com Open flags (from his first PGA Tour victory) signed by members and Jack Nicklaus. Jimmy currently leads the Fed Ex Cup race and his victories include the Frys.com Open, Sony Open and AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Also given to Jimmy was a signed, framed letter from Cordillera Ranch golf course architect Jack Nicklaus congratulating Jimmy on his great start to the 2014 season. A beautiful ice sculpture was done with Jimmy’s initials and the Club also presented him with personalized and engraved bottles of wine for each win.

Director of Golf Marc DeWall summed up the evening’s festivities: “I think so many of our members are first of all just genuinely happy for Jimmy. Most of them know the health challenges he has faced in the past and the work he has put in on his way to the top. They recognize and appreciate that this success has not come instantly, but instead a slow and steady rise through hard work. I think they can identify with that in their own lives. Of course all of us are proud Jimmy calls Cordillera Ranch home. He has been gracious with his time and often plays with many of our members. He is humble and appreciates everything. It has been a lot of fun getting to know him and now wish him nothing but continued success. What a year it is going to be!”

Fish Stocking in Swede Creek Lake

Swede Creek Lake is an outstanding resource and amenity at Cordillera Ranch, and during my 16 years on the Ranch, we have watched the fish populations remain fairly healthy. In 2015, we did a fish survey in Swede Creek Lake to get an estimate of the health and numbers of fish and that report found a very healthy population of bass and several species of sunfish. Over the years, we have caught the following species out of Swede Creek Lake: largemouth or black bass, Guadalupe or spotted bass, rock bass, red breast sun fish, long ear sunfish, green sunfish, bluegill, channel catfish, striped bass and a few turtle species that include the red-ear slider, Texas river cooter and softshell turtle. We have also seen nutra rat and beaver using the lake as home.
