Texas Teams Update 2006
Texas Teams will be held November 18th and 19th this year. Circle R Ranch near Wimberly will host the event once again.
From the website www.circularproductions.com
Every course in Texas is invited to send a team. Teams may also represent schools or other organizations. Some courses send more than one team.
Teams compete head-to-head, so when A-Town plays B-Ville, A-Town’s #1 plays B-Ville’s #1, A-Town’s #2 plays B-Ville’s #2…etc. The team that wins the most individual matches gets the victory.
Rounds are 9 holes, and it’s all match play, so it’s not your total score that counts – it’s how many holes you win.
Most teams will play 4 rounds on Saturday and 2-3 rounds on Sunday.
$45 per player. Every player gets a tournament sweatshirt, a tournament disc, greens fee, and free lunch on Saturday. Camping is free for Texas Team Championships.
There are two divisions – Emerging and Established. Smaller towns and newer courses compete in the Emerging division. Teams consist of 6 players: 3 Advanced and 3 Intermediate.
Bigger cities and older courses compete in the Established division. Established teams have 9 players: 2 Pro, 2 Advanced, 2 Intermediate, 1 Master, 1 Amateur Woman, and one “swing” player (Pro Woman, Grand Master, or Advanced Master).
No cash, no prizes. It’s all for team pride and fun. There will be trophies for the top teams, plus awards for Best Dressed Team and Most Spirited Team.
There are only 9 spots on each established team...
Open Pro (2)
Pro Master (1)
Am Woman (1)
Swing Player (Pro Woman, Grand Master or Advanced Master) (1)
I know there were many who felt left out or just didn't know about the tournament till we had already made up teams. so if you are interested in playing let's start talking about it now.
Some communities have had a tryout to determine the spots.
If we have enough players we could field an established Team A , B and C or have an emerging team (3 advanced, 3 intermediate).
So lets hear your ideas on this.
