The Texas State Open is scheduled to return to Tyler for the third straight year. It will be played in July at The Cascades Golf & Country Club.

The registration deadline for the 50th Texas State Open is quickly approaching.

The entry deadline for the tourney, which is scheduled for July 28-31 in Tyler, is set for 5 p.m. Thursday, June 4.

The Cascades Golf & Country Club will host the event. The Open is presented by Joyce Crane and Veritex Community Bank.

The 72-hole stroke play event will consist of 156 professionals and amateurs competing for a $120,000 projected purse. The field will play 36-holes before being cut to the low 55 scores and ties. All four rounds will be contested at The Cascades Club.

Unless otherwise exempt, professionals and amateurs will gain access into the Texas State Open via an 18-hole qualifying event conducted at 17 sites in Texas and surrounding states during the months of June and July.

The first qualifying tourney is at The Clubs at Comanche Trace in Kerrville. On June 24, The Cascades will host a qualifier.

The Northern Texas PGA Foundation is the charitable partner of the 50th Texas State Open, and proceeds from the Championship will benefit the organization.

Founded in 1983, the nationally acclaimed Northern Texas PGA Junior Golf Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt organization, was rebranded in 2019 as the Northern Texas PGA Foundation.

The Junior Golf Foundation was established to promote and grow the game of golf to a diverse group of kids in North Texas and instill in them the positive character developing traits for which the game is so well known. Each year close to 10,000 children and their families were impacted through the Junior Golf Foundation’s full circle of programs and services.

The Northern Texas PGA Foundation now reaches a greater audience through four additional pillars including, college scholarships, fellowships, inclusion and military and veterans. Over the years, the mission of the Foundation has stayed the same — to positively impact lives and communities through golf.
