The 2021 Houston Open Golf Tournament will begin this November with the Astros Golf Foundation. The foundation made additional renovations to Memorial Park which is now open for the public. Foundation President Giles Kibbe is looking forward to the upcoming games, “We’re going to have a great field. Today we’re honoring our past winner Carlos Ortiz who will be playing this year. We also have several of the top 25 players in the world who have already committed and we’ll be rolling those names out in the next few weeks.”
$7 million dollars worth of purse will be up for competition by top golfers. Kibbe says, “We have the largest purse of any PGA fall event. We obviously have a great city for them to visit. The players recognize the work that has been done here. The way the PGA scoring system works now, the fall events have a lot more importance than they have had in the past.”
Kibbe also announced a concert series set to come this year. “With all the synergies with the Houston Astros and Minute Maid Ball Park we see this as a great opportunity to have some big names come in.” Jake Owen will perform on Friday, November 12 and Kygo will be here Saturday, November 13.
