Overview of LAGA™
LAGA™ (Ladies Amateur Golf Association) is an organization of female amateur golfers with a handicap index of 10.4 or less. LAGA was founded in 1989 as a way for low handicap women players in the North Texas area to play together on a regular basis. Because the majority of our members enjoy competitive golf, and also because many of our members play in amateur tournaments around the country, all of our playdays are conducted in accordance with the rules of the USGA, and play is from the tees that are generally from 5,500 – 6,200 yards in length. Typically there are approximately 30 golfers who compete at the playdays. The organization is proud to have three USGA champions, Carolyn Creekmore, Anna Schultz, and Mina Hardin who are members of LAGA. Additionally many of LAGA members are course raters for local and national publications such as The Dallas Morning News and Golf Digest. We also count amongst our membership 3 USGA rules officials, the former chair of the USGA Women’s Committee, and Executive Director of the Texas Golf Association. The culmination of our season is the Texas Cup where the 12 top amateurs from North Texas compete in a Ryder Cup style tournament against the 12 top amateurs from South Texas. Participation points accrue during the season for this honor.
