Eligibility: Entries are open to male amateur golfers who reside in the state of Texas, with a WHS Handicap Index of 18.0 or less. To be eligible teams must consist of blood or legal relationship (stepfather/stepson). Teams consisting of ‘in-laws’ are not permitted. Both father and son must be a member of a TGA member club with a WHS Handicap Index and both must be a current resident of the state of Texas.

Entry Procedure: The field will be established in the order in which entries are received with a priority for exempt players in each division until the published exemption deadline of Wednesday, June 2 at 5:00 PM. Once the exemption deadline has passed, and if the field or a division is not full, the TGA will fill the remaining spots in the field with waitlisted entries, which may affect the size of each division. For additional information regarding the wait list and when the number of applicants exceeds the field capacity, please refer to the TGA Policies and Procedures.
Waitlist Procedure/Priority: When a spot becomes available in the championship field, the TGA will fill that spot with the top ranked waitlisted team in the division respective to the withdraw. Once all waitlisted teams in a specific division have been exhausted, the TGA will then fill the spot in the field with the highest ranked waitlisted team, regardless of division. For example: If a team from the NET Flighted Division withdraws, the highest ranked NET Flighted Division team on the waitlist will be contacted to fill that spot. If there are no remaining NET Flighted Division teams on the waitlist, the highest overall waitlisted team will be contact. This could be a Championship Division team.
The TGA reserves the right to select players to be in the field. For exemption request details, please view TGA Policies and Procedures. Exempt players must enter by the published deadline or they will lose their exempt status and spot in the final field.
Format/Field Size: The field will be limited to 80 teams. The Championship Division will consist of a maximum 40 teams. These teams will play four-ball stroke play in rounds one and two. After 36 holes, the Championship Division will be separated into two flights. The low 50% (and ties) will make up the Championship Flight and will play Combined Score (individual stroke play using both players scores) in the final round to determine the overall champion. The team with the lowest 54 hole total will determine the overall champions. The remaining teams from the Championship Division will be placed in the Presidents Flight, and will play another round of four-ball stroke play for their final round. Teams will carry their 36-hole total score forward to determine the President Flight winner. The team with the lowest 54 hole total will determine the winner.
All events will take place at Crown Colony Country Club, unless otherwise noted. Championship schedule is subject to changes and additions.
