2008 State Amateur Results

Dallas, TX - The State Amateur Championship was held at Dallas Athletic Club July 27 – August 1, 2008. The Jack Nicklaus designed Blue Course offers natural waterways, rolling hills and a splendid variety of trees. All Bentgrass greens, 419 Bermuda fairways, waterfalls, white sand and grass bunkers make the Blue Course a pleasure as well as a challenge to play. DAC is honored to be represented by the Blue Course in the Dallas Morning News Best of Texas Golf Guide. The Dallas Morning News has published this ranking since 1987. The State Amateur championship was held at D.A.C in 1982 which happen to be the first year of D.A.C’s legendary golf pro, Dennis Ewing. The WTGA had the pleasure of returning to the course this year, which is also Ewing’s last year before he retires. Dennis Ewing, his D.A.C staff, and the D.A.C Ladies Association were amazing and helped make this championship one of our best!

Monday the qualifying round began at 8 a.m. in groups of 3’s. The course played tough and the 100 + degree weather did not make it an easy qualifier. However the ladies stuck it out and posted some great scores, which included Carolyn Creekmore’s Overall Medalist and Senior Medalist score of 69. Jennifer Park, 15, brought in a score of 74 to win the Junior Medalist award. Park also would win the Team Cup Award for Brookhaven as her and Teresa Hood’s combined qualifying score was 155. The low 32 qualifying scores, which happen to be 80 or below, would advance to the championship flight and the rest of the field was then flighted in four flights of sixteen.

Match Play began on Tuesday and went through Friday. There were some great matches throughout the week, which ultimately led to some very deserving Flight Winners. The championship match was between Haley Brown of Austin and Stefanie Page of The Woodlands. Brown played an incredible match and won 8 & 7. She finished the day at six under after hole #11. Congratulations to our new champion as well as all of our flight winners.
