Hall of Fame LPGA Legend Returned for Fundraising Tournament
(Laredo, TX) — The MAX, Laredo’s award-winning golf course designed by distinguished architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr., hosted the second Nancy Lopez Scholarship Invitational on September 26. Five years ago, Lopez was a special guest of the City of Laredo when the new clubhouse was unveiled and the intent to establish a Nancy Lopez Scholarship fund for two high school golf team members (boy and girl) was announced.
“We were excited and pleased to welcome back our Madrina of The MAX golf course, Nancy Lopez. She has generously shared her love of the game with our community and especially our youth since 2013,” said Horacio De Leon, City Manager of the City of Laredo. “We celebrate the progress of this public quality of life enhancement project and her professional athletic career every time we get together. And this time is no different; I hope that Gabriela and Felix will carry her positive influence as they endeavor to achieve their higher educational goals.”
“Nancy is a great golfer but even a greater person,” said Dennis Gutierrez, General Manager of The MAX. “We love having her visit as she brings a smile to us all.”
