Tapatio Springs Hosts 2nd Texas Shamble
As George Strait, country music legend and co-owner of Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort, once sang, “Here for a Good Time.”
Judging by last year’s wildly successfully inaugural event, that song might just be put on continuous loop when the newly renovated resort in Boerne hosts the second edition of the Texas Shamble from Nov. 12-13.
Now, we’re not saying you shouldn’t bring your “A” game, because there’re are certainly going to be plenty of prizes up for grabs. But the overriding theme of the two-day event is to have fun, make new friends and play some golf for the sake of having a good time.
“The Texas Shamble was one of the most enjoyable events we had last year,” said Kelly Kilgo, the TGA’s Senior Director of Membership Services. “This year we plan on making it even bigger and better. There will be lots of prizes, giveaways, food and multiple hole contests each day.”
The Texas Golf Association added the Texas Shamble to the annual schedule in 2015 as a way to engage more of our members in Fun Golf activities. It obviously filled a void because a mere two hours after registration opened last year more than 20 two-person teams had signed up. In all, a total of 40 teams from across Texas were on hand for the first-ever tournament held at Horseshoe Bay Resort.
The starting field for the 2016 Texas Shamble will be limited to 50 teams and includes flights for men, women and mixed teams. Both men and women golfers are encouraged to enter. Partners do not have to be from the same course, but both players must be TGA members.
Registration opens at 9 a.m. on Sept. 7. Those hoping to secure a spot in the starting field are encouraged to sign up early to strengthen their chances of playing.
The tournament format will be a two-person shamble with handicaps, flights and competitive prizes. In a Shamble format, both players hit tee a tee shot, select the better shot and play their own ball from that point until the ball is holed. The team records the better of the two scores as the team score for each hole.
Since purchasing Tapatio Springs in 2011, Strait and longtime friend Tom Cusick were determined to return the resort to its original grandeur and beyond. They immediately started making improvements to the hotel and clubhouse, in addition to adding a new resort pool. In 2014, world-renowned golf course architect, Tripp Davis, was brought in to oversee the $2 million golf course renovation project.
Unveiled in the summer of 2015, the sparkling new layout at Tapatio Springs is once again popping up on every golfer's must play list. The course is sure to charm and entertain Texas Shamble contestants with its wide variety of holes, dramatic elevation changes, and panoramic views.
