The Houston Telephone Golf Association (HTGA) provides competition and fellowship for
its members through monthly golf tournaments and other special events throughout the year.
Membership is open to all who wish to participate.
History / Background Information
The HTGA was originally formed as a sponsored employee organization of Southwestern Bell Telephone Company.
The organization has evolved much over the years and is now simply a member-supported golf club that organizes
competitions at Houston area golf courses for the benefit of the membership. These competitions encourage
fellowship, sportsmanship and entertainment for all participants. Prizes are awarded based on performance using
the member's GHIN handicap index to insure a fair competition.
Every year the HTGA schedules play at a dozen or more courses around the Houston area. Occasionally, play is
extended out of the Houston Metro area to SW Louisiana or points north and west of Houston. Every month there is a
course scheduled for play. Annual match play brackets are conducted for additional competition along
with occasional weekday events to supplement the regular monthly tournaments.
The HTGA is a small club with less than 100 members. Membership consists of male and female players from young adults to seniors.
All members receive a GHIN handicap index through our affiliation with the Texas Golf Association (TGA) and the United
States Golf Association (USGA). Official tournament event scores are posted by the HTGA's handicap chairman, while
regular round scores are the responsibility of the individual member and posted for review on this website.
Every tournament awards prizes to the top players in each of the flights. Members simply need to sign up, show up, and play.
The association maintains handicap indexes through the USGA's GHIN system. Membership includes this handicap service.
