With our Summer Series already back and in full swing, the STPGA is ready for another exciting ten weeks on the greens!

THE COURSE

Recently ranked by The Dallas Morning News as number 54 in the “Top 100 Golf Courses Across Texas,” The Palmilla Beach Golf Club is a beautiful challenge to all who play there. Nestled in the native dunes along the Gulf of Mexico, there is a perfect balance of intentional design and natural elements that make this Arnold Palmer signature course a crowd favorite. The only links-style golf course in the state of Texas, the conditions are above-par from tee to green over all 6,900 yards the course covers.

2016 CHAMPIONSHIP IN THE DUNES
When we visited the course last June, our junior golfers seemed to be up to the challenge that the rolling fairways and ocean breezes of the course entail. The impressive scores of last year’s winners attest to that, with Billy Teichman (Boys 15-18) topping off his division at 141 and Jondi Murphy dominating our girls division with a total score of 160.
