2018 Texas Teams Championship Disc

The Concept:

Happy Players

Every course in Texas and from around the USA is invited to send a team. Teams may also represent schools, ultimate teams, or other organizations. Some courses send more than one team.

Team member on teams must be from the same geographical area in that state so that they represent a course, club, city, school, or other organization. Multiple teams from a state or a course are acceptable.

The Format:

Texas Teams has been a Texas Disc Golf tradition since 2000. Teams represent individual courses or other organizations from a particular area and are composed of players of varying skill levels. Players compete for their team in head-to-head match play in nine-hole rounds. Points, rather than strokes, are totaled from all of the team's rounds to determine the winning team.

This year's three-day event and two-day tournament is much more than just competitive disc golf. It's an experience, a reunion, and a chance to see which community produces the most cohesive and talented team. We will be hosting a national teams event at the same time with teams around the country. Teams from all states are invited for the first time this year!

Team Makeup:

There are two divisions: Established and Merged. Every course or city is invited to send an Established team. Established teams have 9 players: 2 Pro, 2 Advanced, 2 Intermediate, 1 Master, 1 Amateur Woman, and one "swing" player (Pro Woman, Grand Master, or Advanced Master). Courses may send more than one Established team if space allows. Merged Teams consist of 6 players: 3 Advanced and 3 Intermediate and generally represent communities without pros. At Texas Teams 2011, we had 468 players.
