Northwood Club to host 2013 Texas Shootout
Northwood Club located in Dallas will be the host of the 2013 Texas Shootout. This popular year-end event is the Texas Golf Association’s version of the Ryder Cup matches. Twelve players from North Texas and twelve players from South Texas are selected by Player of the Year point totals to represent each region. Players accumulate points throughout the year to earn their way onto the teams, made up of eight mid-amateur players and two senior players.
Players will get the rare chance to play in team match play formats for the Shootout. The first day of competition is comprised of alternate shot and four ball matches. A full day of singles matches provides an exciting finish to the team event. A 3-point scoring system is utilized, with 1 point for the winner of each nine holes and 1 point for the overall match winner. In the event of a tie for 9 or 18 holes, half points are awarded. Team captains are chosen by the TGA and have the responsibility of setting the team lineups.
For those lucky players making the 2013 Shootout, having the chance to play such an elite and exclusive country club will certainly be a reward for having a successful season. Originally designed by William H. Diddel in 1946, the course underwent a renovation in 1990 by Jay Morrish and Tom Weiskopf. Tucked quietly and conveniently in the heart of North Dallas, Northwood Club holds a rich history that includes playing host to the 1952 U.S. Open won by Julius Boros.
The 6,868-yard, par-71 course, features four ponds and three creeks that run through the property offering beautiful yet challenging obstacles for players to navigate. With an array of oak, elm and cottonwood trees intertwined with the multiple Azalea landscapes, Northwood provides each golfer with a majestic setting for each round. Rated a Top 30 Golf Course in Texas by the Dallas Morning News, Northwood Club is sure to provide a great stage for the state’s best Amateurs vying for the Shootout title.
At last year’s Shootout played at Whispering Pines the South Team won its third title in a row. Captained by Woody Fail, the South team claimed their victory with an ending total score of 44 to the North team’s 28. Since its first playing in 2003, the Shootout has been contested at some of the finest courses in the state and the TGA is looking forward to adding Northwood Club to that legacy.
