Declan Kenny finished with the low round of the tournament when he posted a 5-under par 67 in the final round to finish in solo fifth place.
Golf Course: Vaaler Creek Golf Club, located inside the Rockin’ J Ranch development in Blanco, opened in July 2009. Designed by Michael Lowry, Vaaler Creek features well-placed bunkers and beautiful water-features that provide a challenging, yet relaxing round of golf for players of all skill levels.
Tournament Format: The TGA Fall Series is a 54-hole individual stroke play event with no cut. The tournament field features 17 participants in the Men’s Division playing from approximately 6,800 yards.
Weather: Overcast skies each morning gave way to sunshine for the first two rounds, which saw temperatures reach the low 70s. The final round began with dense fog and a misting rain throughout the day.
What’s Next: The final TGA Fall Series – DFW #2 will be held at Hackberry Creek Country Club on November 16 – 18. The Texas Golf Association would like to extend our appreciation to the staff and members of Vaaler Creek Golf Club for hosting this year’s TGA Fall Series – Hill Country.
