Golf Course: Founded in 1927, Midland Country Club opened as a nine-hole course with sand greens. From these modest beginnings, the championship golf course has evolved into one of the premier private clubs in West Texas. At its center is a classic parkland course that was designed in 1951 by Texas Golf Hall of Famer Ralph Plummer. In the fall of 2015, the club hired Weibring-Wolfard Golf Design to oversee a major renovation of the golf course and practice facility. The $8.9 million project finished in 2017 and includes a modernized 7,354-yard, par-72 championship course to better test the skills of today’s players. Over the years, Midland Country Club has played host to many elite amateur tournaments, including eight TGA Major Championships (the 1965, 1971 and 1997 Texas Amateur, 1995 Texas Mid-Amateur, 1970 and 1979 Texas Senior Amateur and the 1963 and 2001 Women’s Texas Amateur).

 

Weather: The temperature reached 100 degrees with steady winds at 16 mph out of the south.

 

In Contention: Elle Fox of Copperas Cove and her partner Jackie Feldman of Austin carded a 5-under-par 67 and sits two shots off the lead. The team of Megan Daleo of Plano and Allie Bianchi of Allen are tied for third with the team of Hanna Harrison of Plano and Evelyn Arguelles of Dallas after carding a 3-under-par 69.

 

What’s Next: Round 2 starts Tuesday morning at 7:30 a.m. at Midland Country Club.
