Golf Club of Houston site of 2019 Houston Open
The 2019 Houston Open will be played on the Golf Club of Houston Tournament Course the week of October 7th - 13th.
Past Champions: Ian Poulter (2018), Russell Henley (2017), Jim Herman (2016), J.B. Holmes (2015), Australian Matt Jones (2014), D. A. Points (2013), Hunter Mahan (2012), Phil Mickelson (2011), Anthony Kim (2010), Englishman Paul Casey (2009), Australians Adam Scott (2007) and Stuart Appleby (2006) and native Texan Johnson Wagner (2008) won the first 10 events played on the Tournament Course, designed by Rees Jones with input from PGA TOUR player David Toms. Sandwiched in between the Dell World Match Play Championship in Austin and the Masters, tournament officials are optimistic about attracting another world class field.
The Tournament Course opened in August of 2005. It is an open-to-all daily fee facility with added amenities like fore caddies.
Designed to host Houston's PGA TOUR event, the Tournament Course is adjacent to the former tournament venue -- the layout now known as the Golf Club of Houston Member Course.
Redstone Golf Club opened in December of 2002. Marquee players Fred Couples (2003) and Vijay Singh (2004, 2005) entered the winner's circle during the Shell Houston Open's stay on the Member Course, designed by Peter Jacobsen and Jim Hardy.
The Golf Club of Houston's proximity to U.S. 59 and Beltway 8 has proven popular with golf fans throughout the region. The property is located only 20 minutes from downtown Houston and only five minutes from Bush Intercontinental Airport.
Houston's PGA TOUR stop was played on The Woodlands Country Club from 1975-1984 and on the Tournament Players Course at The Woodlands from 1985-2002.
The Golf Club of Houston's complex is located on heavily forested property just east of the intersection of U.S. Highway 59 North and the Sam Houston Tollway. There is no commercial real estate development on the Tournament Course.
