Golf Course: Founded in 1969, Royal Oaks Country Club is nestled between luscious trees and serene lakes in the heart of Dallas. Today, the club has become one of the premiere golf courses in Texas. With its opening design by Don January and Billy Martindale, the course was tough enough and made even more challenging by the renovation by Jay Morrish in 1985. Royal Oaks has been host to many TGA majors, including the 2010 Texas Amateur and the 2015 Texas Mid-Amateur.
Weather: The temperature reached 96 degrees with steady winds at 13 mph and gusted up to 26 mph out of the south.
In Contention: Grand Prairie’s Aysis Azarcon and Grace Cassity of Katy are three shots off the lead entering the clubhouse at a 3-under-par 69, tied with the Jones duo, Shanna and Madelyn, of Austin. There’s a three-way tie for third, all teams sitting at 2-under 70. Allen’s Allie Bianchi and Pflugerville’s Hannah Choi, Simone Campise of Lewisville and Sidney Stramel of Allen and defending champs Faith Delagarza of Midland and Amari Smith of Mckinney are all in the hunt for the title.
What’s Next: Round 2 starts Tuesday morning at 9:00 a.m. at Royal Oaks Country Club.
