12 March 2023: A movie about the San Felipe High School 1957 Class A Texas state champion golf team had its world premiere at the film festival part of SXSW (South by Southwest). The cast of “The Long Game” includes Cheech Marin and Dennis Quaid.

The five players were caddies at the San Felipe Country Club (located in Del Rio); they taught themselves the game and used hand-me-down clubs to win by 35 strokes. The team was inducted into the National Hispanic Heritage Hall of Honor in 2016.
