To Prospective New Members

We thank you for your interest in the Central Texas Golf Association (CTGA) and we’re glad you’re considering us as your golf league of choice.  We’re confident you’ll find us to be everything you’re looking for.  Browsing through our Website and the information here should answer most questions you may have about who we are and how we operate.

Our CTGA Tournament year begins with our first event following our annual Fall Classic (usually in October) and concludes with our next Fall Classic. Our tournament schedule consists of 32 tournaments, including 24 one-day weekend events, 6 weekday events, and 2 two-day weekend events.

CTGA Annual Membership Dues are $75.00, payable at your first tournament. For new members who join after May 31, annual dues are prorated to $35.00.

CTGA tournament fees include:

  1. Course green fee (and, if applicable, shared cart fee and range balls)
  2. Player Pool prize fee for competing in Flights and Close-to-Pin competitions
  3. Optional Skins competition ($5.00 entry)
  4. Optional Deuces competition ($5.00 entry)

Tournament fees are paid at the course on tournament day. CTGA does not burden Members or invited Guests with the need to pre-pay tournament fees.

Tournament formats are Individual (Medal Play, Modified Stableford, Chicago) and Team (2-Player and 4-Player Team) events. All Individual format events are Flighted based on individual CTGA established handicaps. Team events are Flighted based on total Team player handicaps.

Two additional year-long competitions for Members only include:

  1. CTGA competition (optional with one-time $10.00 entry fee)
  2. CTGA Challenge competition (optional with one-time $10.00 entry fee)

And finally, CTGA has a Hole-In-One fund to reward any Member or invited Guest who achieves this feat.

 CTGA welcomes all amateur golfers (male and female) in the greater Austin, Texas area.
