Texas Lions Camp Golf TournamentOne of the most important fund raisers for The Texas Lions Camp for kids in Kerrville is the State Lions Golf Tournament in Fredericksburg held each year around the first of August. In 2015 the Wimberley Lions Club sent 6 teams of 4, 24 players, to play in the tournament where one of the teams came home with the 3rd place trophy. In 2014 this team won the first place trophy. This is a fun tournament with golfers of all levels participating with the goal of raising money for disabled kids that will attend the Lions Kids camp in Kerrville.
