Jim Brown of Dallas Elected TGA President
At the Annual Membership Meeting, Jim Brown of Dallas Athletic Club was elected to a two-year term as President of the Texas Golf Association effective January 1, 2016. He succeeds Bill Hanley of Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, who served from 2014-15.
Other executive officers elected to two-year terms were: Carey Schulten of Dallas National Golf Club, 1st Vice President; Leslie Henry of Memorial Park Golf Course in Houston, 2nd Vice President; and Jonathan Shipley of Champions Golf Club in Houston, Secretary/Treasurer.
“I am truly honored and deeply humbled to have been elected the next president of the Texas Golf Association,” said Brown, who also serves on the board of the TGA Foundation and The First Tee of Greater Dallas. “It has been my distinct pleasure for the past several years to work with, and alongside of, the dedicated staff and volunteers that make up the TGA.
“As the TGA enters its 110th year of service to the game, I look forward to building on the success achieved by my predecessors and the talented staff led by Executive Director Rob Addington. Together, we will continue to strive to bring the best golf experiences to all our Members and Member Clubs.”
Brown, 70, is in his seventh year as a Director of the TGA and fifth as an Executive Officer. Prior to being elected President, Brown served two-year terms as 1st Vice President and 2nd Vice President. In addition, he will continue to serve on several sub-committees, including Nominating, Finance, Compensation, and Rules & Competitions.
A longtime advocate for amateur golf, Brown has also been a member the Southern Golf Association’s Board of Directors since 2001 and a member of the Executive Committee since 2011. Currently the SGA’s 1st Vice President, during his tenure Brown has also served as 2nd Vice President (2013-14) and Treasurer (2011-12).
Brown, a retired personal injury lawyer, received his BBA and JD from SMU in Dallas. He was a letterman on the Men’s Golf Team from 1963-65 and continues to support his alma mater by taking an active role on the Payne Stewart Cup Committee – the SMU Golf fundraiser – since 2003, serving as Chairman in 2009 and 2011.
