Heritage Park serves as a proud reminder of the colorful and successful history of England Airforce Base and the 23rd fighter wing. The famous Flying Tigers are yet another chapter in central Louisiana’s long history of support of our armed forces and our nation.
England Airpark traces beginnings back to 1939 when it served as an emergency airstrip for Esler Field Airport. However, as the possibility of war in Europe increased, The Army Air Corps leased the facility naming it Alexandria Army Air Force Base. Until 1945, the facility was used as a B-17 bomber combat training school, training an average of 45 crews per month. After the cessation of hostilities in Europe in 1945, the Base was used to train B-29 Crews for duty in the Pacific Theater.
In 1946, as the war ended with Japan, the base was placed on a standby status eventually being turned back over to the city of Alexandria for use as a municipal airport. With the outbreak of hostilities in Korea, the base was again reactivated as Alexandria Air Force Base in 1950. That same year it was assigned to Tactical Air Command. In June 1955, the base was officially named England Air Force Base in honor Lt. Col. John B. England who had been commander of the 389th Bomber Squadron at the base. The facility was once again closed by the Department of Defense on December 15th, 1992, and began its transition to civilian reuse as England Airpark and Community.

GUERINGER, BRUNETZ & ADAMS TAKE SUN MOUNTAIN-YAMAHA 3-PRO
Madison, MS: The 8th Annual Gulf States PGA Sun Mountain/Yamaha 3-Pro named its Champions for 2021 at Whisper Lake Country Club in Madison, MS on Monday, May 10th. Robbie Gueringer, PGA (OakWing GC), Matt Brunetz, PGA (Whisper Lake CC), and Reg Adams, PGA (Huntington Park GC) took the honors with a score of -14 (50). Their score bested a field of 12 teams.
The 18-hole event concluded with a separate “9-hole addon” competition pitting 6-man scramble teams in a match play, sudden death format. In response to his thoughts on the new horse race style, Matt Brunetz answered, “It was interesting, and at that last point when we had 18 balls on the green, it looked a little different, but it was fun. It was a good format, I think it was a really good edition to this event, and I look forward to keeping it in the future.” The winning team included: Marie Gateley, Bobby Flanagan, Dustin Diez, Fred Schroeder, Dean Baham, and Ronny Ross.
The Gulf States PGA would like to thank title sponsors Craig Gibson of Sun Mountain, Jeff Jungers and Shannon Caverly, PGA of Yamaha, and Matt Pollitt and Lauren Berard of PTE Golf.
