When people think of Texas, they often conjure up cliche images of cowboys, 10-gallon hats, tumbleweeds, rodeos, and wide-open ranges. While it’s true that the history of our great state includes all of those elements, what people may not realize is that there is so much more to the Lone Star State than meets the eye. Introduced by the growing number of influential immigrants and their culture, the game of golf gained a foothold in the early 1900′s and very soon after the Texas Golf Association was founded.
The mission of the TGA is the same today as it was more than 100 years ago: “To promote the playing and advancement of the royal and ancient game of golf in Texas, by bringing the clubs and the players together.”
The TGA conducts some of the State’s most prestigious tournaments and championships and as its reach and services have grown, so has its membership along with it. Today the TGA is one of the most respected golf organizations in the country and continually receives recognition for providing top resources, having dependable staff, and preserving traditions of the game.
Seeing as though GolfBOSS calls Texas home, we are proud to be able to share the same state with one of the leading golf associations in the United States. For more information about the TGA and how you can become involved visit www.txga.org.
