Austinites are fighting to keep this historic municipal course open and accessible to all. Erik Anders Lang and University of Texas alumnus/legend Ben Crenshaw wrap up Season 5 of Adventures in Golf, presented by United Airlines.
Lions Municipal has been a longstanding fixture in Austin, Texas, and recognized as the first desegregated golf course south of the Mason-Dixon back in the 1950s. The land the course occupies is owned by the University of Texas, and the lease is up, putting Lions' fate in jeopardy.
Erik visits the course and the town to speak with locals about the course's overall impact, including two-time Masters champion Ben Crenshaw, who designed the course and co-created a non-profit aimed to raise enough money to buy the course from UT.
Will Lions be saved? We're all hopeful for a future of affordable, accessible golf, but only time will tell. If you'd like to get involved, visit savemuny.com to donate.
