About the Ben Hur Golf Unit:
The Ben Hur Golf Unit was organized in 1967 with 10 members, three of whom are still active. Membership in the Unit is made up of regular members, social members, and honorary members but voting privileges are limited to regular members. Social and Honorary members are usually Shiner's who belong to other Units but enjoy good fellowship and the game of golf.
Tournaments are held locally at municipal courses and country clubs once each month, March through December. They are arranged by the Unit Tournament Chairman who calculates and maintains handicaps for all members, calculates prize winners and distributes prizes. Special tournaments are held at the Annual State convention and at the Golf Association mid-winter meeting which is held in various cities in Texas.
A Tri-Temple tournament is arranged twice annually by the Ben Hur, Al Amin or Alzafar Golf Units and is participated in by these units and other Texas Shrine Temples.
The Ben Hur Golf Unit provides a lot of healthful fun for golfers. Skill at playing the game ranges from mighty good to down right awful, but with accurate handicaps even the hacker has a chance to shine on occasion. If you enjoy the game, come join us for an outing or two and then decide if you want to be a Ben Hur Golfer.
