Renowned Visionary: R.D. Hubbard Pens His Autobiography

BIGHORN Golf Club Chairman R.D. Hubbard released his autobiography, “All You Can Worry About Is Tomorrow,” in November, receiving tremendous accolades. Several professors have even added it as assigned reading.

Hubbard, the last of eight children in a family of modest means, grew to become a successful entrepreneur who was not content to make his mark in just a single industry. Beginning as a young CEO of Safelite Glass, he led a series of lucrative takeovers and turnarounds involving the founding of glass manufacturer AFG Industries, which Hubbard sold in 1992. In 1988, Hubbard bought his first of many racetracks, Ruidoso Downs Race Track in New Mexico. He also served as the CEO of Hollywood Park Inc. in the 1990s, overseeing the company’s unique and inventive private clubs in the country.

Throughout the book, Hubbard shares milestones of his own experience that will support and encourage entrepreneurs in many capacities, from sizing up competitors and discovering how to motivate specialized talent, to earning trust from financial decision makers and staying focused on tomorrow.

“I wanted to share some of my most inspirational stories with the quality businesspeople of today,” shares Hubbard. “I take pride in surrounding myself with top professionals who continue to drive our success.”

The book opens with a foreword by the late famed Hollywood producer Jerry Weintraub, who was a close friend of Hubbard.

Goldie Hawn, actress, producer, and director, as well as Founder and Board Chair of The Hawn Foundation & MindUP, has this to say about the biography: “R.D. Hubbard’s journey is the embodiment of the American Dream. Born of humble means to great success, Hubbard all the while tirelessly gives back to the less fortunate to help them reach their dreams.”

Net proceeds from the sale of this book are being donated to the scholarship programs of BIGHORN Golf Club Charities, benefiting
employees and their families. Copies are available through and on
