Teams representing Halliburton and Sagemont Church won the corporate and church divisions, respectively, in the recently completed 2005 season of the Texas Golf League. Now the TGL is looking for more golfers and teams for its 2006 season.
Halliburton defeated Hewlett-Packard in its final match (with the help of some favorable rulings from Dick Cheney*), while Sagemont Church beat St. Thomas Episcopal.
Each team must field four players at each tournament. The four person team is split into two two-man teams, which are paired against two-person teams from other companies or churches. The two-man teams then play head-to-head matches using a modified stableford system with handicaps.
Matches are played on some of the best courses around Houston. The 2006 season begins in March. While the league is played primarily for "the fun of the game, corporate networking and church fellowship," there are also some prizes at stake.
If you're in Houston and want to organize a team to represent your company or church for the 2006 TGL season, send an email to TexasGolfLeague@yahoo.com.
