Golfers from Tierra Verde Golf Club in Arlington claimed their second consecutive state title with their June 1 victory over Lochinvar Golf Club of Houston in the Texas Golf Association League Play Championship in MarbleFalls. Tierra Verde golfers outlasted their Houston counterparts, 7-5, in the match-play finals after victories over Odessa Country Club and Dallas Athletic Club (Blue Team).
Participants on the winning team were Tierra Verde club pro Chad Williams, Zee Siddiqui, Ben Hicks, Doug Foster, Sam Saxton, Joe Bauer, Bret Maison and Shawn Walsh, the team captain. Tierra Verde is the only team in the league comprised of golfers from a public course, rather than a private country club.
