The state of Texas has a new Tournament for competitive women golfers. Board members of LAGA and STXLAGA approved a friendly challenge between each organization. The challenge will be known as the North South.

The Inaugural event takes place on August 5-6, 2016 at Crown Colony in Lufkin, Texas. We are so pleased to play at Crown Colony, it is a wonderful golf course and a hidden jewel in East Texas, said Lynn Keefe, President of LAGA. The Challenge will consist of forty players, twenty representing LAGA and twenty representing STXLAGA.  This should be fun and social, as well as competitive, stated Julie Robichaux, President of STXLAGA.

Members of LAGA and of STXLAGA will compete in a Four-Ball Match Play, gross only competition. Four-ball match play is where two players play their better ball against the better ball of two other players.  Each match will compete for one total point on each hole. If a hole is halved, each side will receive a half point. The total points available for each match are 18 points.

More information will be out soon on how to participate in the North South. The purpose of LAGA and STXLAGA is to provide women with low handicaps, competitive events to participate in on a regular basis.
