Director of the TGA Foundation and Director of Outreach. “I am excited that
Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort is having us again this year and I know it
will be a great time!”
The 2021 edition takes place Oct. 29-31 and will feature 54
two-person teams competing in men’s, women’s, and mixed team flights, each with
gross and net divisions. The format is a two-person shamble with handicaps, as

format, both players hit a tee shot, select the best one and play their own
ball from that point until the ball is holed. The team records the better of
the two scores as the team score for each hole.

the best resort golf courses in Texas. Winding through the beautiful countryside
of Central Texas, the course offers incredible views, many elevation changes, groves
of live oak trees, natural water features and holes that are challenging yet
playable—whether you’re a seasoned golfer or just beginning.
