100 Texas Women

100 Texas Women

Since the founding of the Women's Texas Golf Association in 1916, Texas has played a leading role in women's golf.  Over the last 100 years, the greatest names in golf have been engraved onto our trophies and announced on our first tees.  World Golf Hall of Fame members "Babe" Didrickson Zaharias, Betty Jameson, Betsy Rawls and Sandra Haynie all claimed Women's Texas Amateur titles before they moved on the professional glory.  Leading amateurs the likes of Polly Riley, Toni Wiesner, Carolyn Creekmore and Martha Leach also have made their mark in Texas women's golf.  Many of the visionaries guiding the evolution of women's golf throughout our history and across the nation also have roots in the Lone Star State.  Aniela Godthwaite,  Bea Thompson, Martha Lang, Pam Murray, 'Nez Muhleman and many more have contributed countless hours as volunteers and represented Texas on USGA Committees and other national associations.

100 Texas Women is an ongoing blog that will highlight 100 of the special women that have called Texas home and are part of the century-long story of women's golf in our state.  Most of the content for each post comes from the scrapbooks that have been compiled and curated by volunteers since the very beginning - photos and news clippings dating all the way back to before our founding in 1916!
