DEFENDING CHAMPIONS.  First Tee of Dallas, with a score of four under par 136. 

FORMAT.  Each Texas First Tee chapter may enter four players.  From those four players, the chapter will identify two two-person teams who will play in a two-person scramble.  A mix of male and female players is encouraged.  The combined gross score of a Chapter's two two-person teams will be the team's tournament score.  If Austin's Joe and Jane score 70 and Austin's Bill and Bob score a 72, Austin's score is a 142.  Each two-person team will play with a two-person team from another chapter. 


VENUE:  Onion Creek Club, Austin, Texas.  See    

ENTRY FEE:  $400.00 per team due with entry by March 1, 2024.  March 1, 2024 is a firm deadline.  Pay online via PayPal or Debit/Credit Card.  Fee includes golf, range balls, cookout, awards and gratuities. 


AWARDS:  Gold, Silver and Bronze medals (from world-renowned Alex. Kirkwood & Sons, Edinburgh, Scotland). A hickory-shaft golf club will be awarded to all players on the first three teams. The Team Champions will have custody of The Texas Cup until the 2025 tournament. All players receive a golf book. 

AWARDS PRESENTATION:  Following play, we will gather for a cookout and awards presentation.  Other persons associated with a Chapter's team are invited to attend the cookout at $20.00 per person.  Cookout reservations and payment for these additional persons must accompany the team's entry into the tournament, due on March 1, 2024.  Pay online via PayPal or Debit/Credit Card.  For reservations, select the Cookout Registration tab above.


EQUIPMENT:  All players will use hickory-shaft golf clubs (originals or reproductions). Mr. William Reed of Des Moines, Iowa will generously provide loaner sets.  A team’s coach has responsibility for working with Mr. Reed to ensure appropriate distribution and collection of clubs.  Soft golf balls are highly recommended when playing with hickory shaft golf clubs.
