SGA Golf Challenge at Falconhead Golf Club

This year we are honored to host the SGA Golf Challenge at the beautiful Falconhead Golf Club.  This course was designed by the experts from the PGA Tour Design Center in the rolling terrain of the Central Texas Hill Country, one of the most beautiful areas of Texas. They kept all the flavor of this unique land shaded by gnarled trees and crisscrossed by meandering streams and creeks.  The fee is $98 per person including range balls, cart, greens fees, and dinner during the awards ceremony. Beverages and prizes sponsored by HDR Engineering.

February 19, 2014 - Registration at 12:30pm, shotgun start at 1:00pm

15201 Falcon Head Boulevard

Austin, Texas  78738

$98 Fee Includes:  Range balls, cart, greens fees and dinner during the awards ceremony.
