Actually, Leon and Shirley have been stock- holding members since 1961 and were associate members for three years prior when LBCC opened in 1958.

Until his retirement, Leon was an engineer for Clinchfield Coal Company and remembers doing the survey plans and work for the lake and the nine-hole golf course in 1953-54, Four years later LBCC opened to much fanfare and is still the oldest oper- ating private nine-hole course in Virginia.

In 2006. Leon won the men's senior club championship and will probably be a force to be reckoned with this year. According to Leon, LBCC was named by, then, president of CCC Kyle Tieche who had a summer camp in Canada named Bonaventure. The lake was filled and the course was constructed and, thus, the name Lake Bonaventure Country Club. While LBCC is active and ready to celebrate its 59th year in May, Leon and Shirley, with the help of son, Linky, blew out 64 candles on their wedding cake on February 4... a life- time of uch great memo- ries together, numerous rounds of golf and love.
