What's New

At the recent Shell Houston Open, Southwestern Golf Association President, John Ranslem, met with former Southwestern Amateur champion JT Poston (2013).

JT earned his PGTour card by ending up in the top 25 on the Web.com Tour in 2016. He has made the cut in most of the 2017 PGA events he has entered.

At the Genesis Open he was paired in the first two rounds with Kevin Dougherty, our 2012 champion and first runner up to JT in 2013. Read more....

Former Southwestern Amateur champions Nick Watney (2002) and JT Poston (2013) finished T14 in the recently completed Valspar Championship.

There is a new amateur tournament near us in time and place! The no cut “Sizzler Amateur” will be held from June 11-13 at the Troon North Golf Club, just a few miles from us at Desert Mountain.

 

Play both and you could play up to 10 rounds of golf on some of the best courses in the country and stay at the same accommodations for the entire time. Read more...
