Texas Cup Qualifying Process and Point System

STXLAGA would like to announce that the association will now be running the organization of the South Team for the annual Texas Cup Matches. The Texas Cup is a match play event, similar to the Ryder Cup/Solheim Cup, with ladies from North Texas competing against ladies from South Texas. This year will be the 31st playing of the Texas Cup. You must be at least 25 years old to compete and no longer competing on a college golf team. You must also have a handicap index of 8.0 or less.

A Texas Cup Committee was approved by the STXLAGA Board and this committee will run the Texas Cup for the South Team. The Committee members are currently Lecia Alexander, Cindy Gilkeson and Jenn Hoyt and they will rotate off the Committee every two years.

The 2022 Texas Cup will be held September 13-15 at The Woodlands Tournament Course. A qualifier will be held to determine 6 players, 3 players will be based on points and 3 players by captains picks.

2022 Texas Cup Qualifier will be held at Cypresswood Golf Club, Tradition Course on July 9-10th.
