The TaylorMade OB Sports National Team Championship presented by adidas Golf will be held December 10-12, 2010 at the award winning We-Ko-Pa Golf Club. The first round of the two-round competition will be played on We-Ko-Pa’s Cholla Course and the second round will be played on the Saguaro Course the following day. Nearby Eagle Mountain Golf Club will be hosting practice round festivities that Friday, including a TaylorMade demonstration and putting challenge along with the  Ashworth Welcome Reception.

In total 136 national qualifiers are participating in the event, representing sixteen OB Sports affiliated golf clubs from throughout the United States. Each team will field an eight-person team made up of seven qualifiers from the club and the club’s golf professional.

Other past team champions include Tijeras Creek Golf Club (2008) and Sandia Golf Club (2007).
