Since the inaugural Texas Amateur Championship in 1906, the Texas Golf Association (TGA) has conducted the state’s most prominent amateur competitions on an annual basis. Ten (10) annual statewide championships are contested by the TGA each year, in an effort to crown the Lone Star State’s best amateur golfer(s) in various championships.
Catering to different age divisions, Texas Golf Association (TGA) Regional Events provide a competitive opportunity in the North and South regions of the state for Amateur, Mid-Amateur and Senior-aged players on an annual basis. In addition, a Four-Ball competition is also held to start each season.
With three (3) events played in the North Texas and Hill Country regions, the Texas Golf Association (TGA) Medalist Series provides competitive opportunities conducted in conjunction with TGA Member Clubs. The Medalist Series provides players with an organized, enjoyable, competitive environment with fewer eligibility parameters than Regional and Statewide Championships.
Texas Golf Association (TGA) policies and procedures are comprised of championship-specific policies, conditions of competition and local rules (hard card). These policies and procedures govern all competitive play in TGA Competitions in an effort to ensure the best possible competitive experience for TGA members and clubs.
For any golfers that reside in the state of Texas wishing to regain their Amateur status, the Texas Golf Association can help. An application for reinstatement to amateur status must be completed in duplicate before the USGA will consider you for reinstatement. Once the applications are completed, they must first be sent to the Texas Golf Association for review.
