The Texas Region of the NCCGA hosted its first Regional Tournament in Spring of 2013. The founding clubs of the Texas Region are Baylor, SMU, TCU, and Texas A & M. Texas A & M won the inaugural season of the Texas Region, and Baylor won the region in the Fall of 2013. The Bears represented the Texas Region well in the Fall 2013 National Championship, finishing T-2 at Barefoot Resort. Baylor University again won in Spring 2014, representing the Texas Region at Nationals for the second semester in a row. Winning the National Championship at Crystal Springs Resort in New Jersey, the Bears brought back Texas's first National Title. Eleven universities currently compete in the Texas Region, including Baylor, TCU, Texas A & M, Texas A&M Women's Team, SMU, UT, ACU, Angelo State, Golf Academy of America, Lone Star, and Tarleton State. The Region hopes to continue its expansion by adding more competitive teams and players in the future. The Texas Region has seen the emergence of many talented teams including multiple National participants in spring 2018 in Baylor, Texas, TCU and Golf Academy Dallas. Look for these teams to continue to battle this fall with the rest of the talented Zone 5. Baylor made a trip to Myrtle Beach for the 2018 Fall National Championship where they turned in a solid top 15 finish as a team. Their 2 day total of 772 was good for T13 as they were led by Lawson Klotz who was (+7) for the event. This competitive region will be one to watch for the upcoming spring season.
