UPDATE: In 2005, after an 8-year hiatus, the
Texas Golf Association brought back the State
Club Team Championship as a way for member
clubs to get together and enjoy the spirit of
camaraderie and competition.
However, the championship failed to attract
much interest among member clubs and players
over the ensuing years, despite continued
enhancements to the event.
The TGA has surveyed many players to get their
opinion and assessment for the low participation
rate and have found that there are multiple
areas of concerns: number of players per team,
championship format, date, and host site.
After an internal review, the TGA has elected to
suspend the State Club Team Championship in
2013, allowing time to discuss possible solutions
and recommendations for its future.
Eligibility: Clubs / Courses that are members of
the Texas Golf Association in good standing
may enter (1) one team per facility. If by the
