Whispering Pines Golf Club in Trinity is one of the most celebrated golf courses in Texas. If it’s not at the top of everyone’s Texas Golf Course Bucket List, then it’s certainly in their top 2 or 3. Everyone wants to experience Whispering Pines and all who do come away impressed and itching to return.
This year’s crown jewel of TGA Championships, the 109th Texas Amateur, will be contested at the exclusive, Chet Williams-designed oasis. Now every male amateur in Texas with a GHIN Index of 6.4 or better has a chance to punch their ticket to play Whispering Pines, the No. 1-ranked course in the state for 10 of the past 12 years.
Only one thing stands in the way of those eligible to compete in the 109th Texas Amateur. They must advance through an 18-hole, do-or-die qualifying tournament. This year there are 17 sectional qualifiers spread across the state from April 10-May 23. There’s also one “Last Chance” qualifier on June 4.
We greatly appreciate all the TGA Member Clubs who stepped up to host a qualifier for the 109th Texas Amateur. Keep scrolling below for a list of qualifiers near you and more information on each site.
