Texas Cup Invitational Heads to Stonebridge Ranch CC
Dallas- The Texas Cup Invitational will head to Stonebridge Ranch Country Club’s Dye Course for the first time in the tournament’s 12-year history and move up in the year to add another round, making it 54 holes.
The LJT took over the Texas Cup Invitational in 2008 and has seen the tournament’s field strength grow each year. This year, the tournament is being held in March to accommodate the extra day of golf for the 84-player field. The tournament is an elite boys-only event with players traveling from all over the state of Texas and the surrounding area to compete.
This will be the first Major Tournament for the Boys 15-18 Division in 2019, offering double points towards the Player of the Year standings as well as AJGA Performance Stars including fully exempt status for the winner. The tournament is also ranked by the World Amateur Golf Ranking, Junior Golf Scoreboard and Golfweek.
Stonebridge Ranch Country Club is located in McKinney, Texas and the 18-hole Pete Dye Signature Golf Course opened in 1988 and is a true test to golfers. The course features mini verde greens along with numerous bunkers spread throughout the property that has knee-high fescue sitting just off the fairway to challenge the field. The course will play as a par 71 for the Texas Cup Invitational and stretch out to 6,893 yards for the field.
Other past sites that have hosted the Texas Cup Invitational include, Ridglea Country Club, Mira Vista Country Club and The Honors Club of Dallas, which was recently renovated into Maridoe Golf Club. The tournament has produced some stellar past champions including Chandler Phillips, Stratton Nolen, Braden Bailey, Ryan Grider and last year’s champion Thomas Bockholt III.
Bockholt won the Texas Cup Invitational with a birdie on the first playoff hole at Ridglea Country Club’s North Course last year. The Austin-native and Rice University commit posted rounds of 71-69 to get to 140 overall and into a tie with Prosper’s Matthew
Griggs. They played the 18th, which is a 500-yard par 5 and Bockholt was able to avoid the trees on the right to land his approach on the green in two. He cleaned up his birdie to win the Texas Cup Invitational and went on to secure the Boys 15-18 Division Player of the Year Award.
The Texas Cup Invitational is a Major Event on the LJT schedule with players earning spots in the field based on exemptions from previous events. Players earn exemptions by playing in LJT events along with Texas Junior Golf Alliance events including the Northern and Southern Texas PGA sections as well as the Houston Golf Association.
The first round of the Texas Cup Invitational gets started on Monday, March 11 at 8:00 am.
