110th Texas Amateur Returns to Dallas Athletic Club for First Time in 16 Years
The 110th Texas Amateur will be played June 13-16 on the Jack Nicklaus-designed Blue Course at Dallas Athletic Club. Conducted by the Texas Golf Association since 1906, the championship brings together the state’s most accomplished amateur players to compete for the H.L. Edwards Memorial Trophy. For non-exempt players, 18-hole qualifying will be held April 9 - May 24 at 18 sites across Texas.

This will be the seventh TGA major championship conducted at DAC and the third Texas Amateur. In 2003, the last time the club hosted the event, Ryan Baca of Richmond became the first person to defend the Texas Amateur title in nearly 20 years. Scott Verplank of Dallas was the last to accomplish the feat in 1984-85.

Originally designed by Ralph Plummer, the Blue Course underwent a major renovation overseen by Jack Nicklaus in 1985. It was a rather fitting and triumphant return for Nicklaus, who, as a then 21-year-old phenom, won the 1963 PGA Championship held at Dallas Athletic Club.
