ABOUT THE Texas State Club Team

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.
