2015 Texas South Mid-Amateur Preview
DALLAS, Texas — Lakecliff Country Club in Spicewood is set to host the 2015 Texas South Mid-Amateur presented by Club Champion from March 20-22.

Conducted by the Texas Golf Association, the championship is open to male amateur golfers 25 years of age or older by the first round of tournament play, have a certified GHIN Handicap Index of 8.4 or less, and reside in the South Texas region. The TGA uses the 31st parallel in Salado as the delineation between the North and South regions.

The format for the South Mid-Amateur is 54 holes of individual stroke play with no cut.

Both the winner and runner-up, if eligible, earn exemptions into this year’s Texas Amateur which will be contested June 18-21 at Bent Tree Country Club in Dallas. Additionally, the top three finishers and ties will receive automatic exemptions into Texas Mid-Amateur to be played September 25-27 at Royal Oaks Country Club, also in Dallas.

Opened in 2001, Lakecliff Country Club was designed by Arnold Palmer. Nestled against the banks of Lake Travis, the course stretches to 6,754 yards and plays to a par 71. The scenic layout has a great combination of long and short holes surrounded by lakes and streams, and five par 3s that test a player’s ball-striking ability.

Among the notable players in the 2015 starting field are Mike Booker of The Woodlands, two- time TGA Senior Player of the Year; John Dowdall of Fulshear, two-time TGA South Regional Player of the Year; and Jess Bonneau of Houston, 2014 U.S. Public Links semifinalist and winner of the 2011 Texas Mid-Amateur Match Play.
