HARLINGEN — With an early morning ceremony, Harlingen Country Club members yesterday celebrated the 50th anniversary of the club.
The celebration involved current club members as well as ambassadors from the Harlingen Chamber of Commerce, who participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony and held a commemorative opening tee shot.
The club first opened its doors in 1949, but moved to its current location in 1969.
What used to be Harlingen’s airport is now an 18-hole golf course that has been ranked one of the best in the Rio Grande Valley, according to membership director Estella Coello.
“It feels wonderful to do this 50 years later. I come to the club four or five times a week and play three times a week,” Gorges said. “I think it is a wonderful thing that it is turning 50 and we have about a hundred new members. It is a great place to be, a great organization and a great group of people. Everyone is welcome.”
Current club President Dr. Jim Rowe said the growth of the club is what excites members for the future.
