ABOUT THE ASTROS GOLF FOUNDATION
The Astros Golf Foundation, founded by Houston Astros Owner & Chairman Jim Crane, is the 501c3 non-profit organization responsible for operating the annual Houston Open.


The Astros Golf Foundation took ownership of the tournament in 2018 with three key objectives: to ensure the PGA TOUR event remained in Houston, to bring the tournament back to its glory and into the heart of the city, and to provide much needed resources and funds to the citizens and community of Houston through park improvements, charitable fundraising and investing in youth. These objectives were achieved through a $34 million renovation to Memorial Park Golf Course completed in two years. The renovations include an upgrade of the municipal course to PGA TOUR standards, construction of a short course for First Tee participants, an expanded driving range, and a new clubhouse that will serve First Tee Houston programming throughout the year.


Additionally, the Astros Golf Foundation will operate and serve underprivileged youth throughout the city with a state-of-the-art facility, the Chevron Center for Education and Golf. This facility will operate year-round and not only provide First Tee instruction, but also serve as a STEM educational center for children in need. The Astros Golf Foundation has also made investments in both scholarship and youth programming at the facility.
The mission of the Astros Golf Foundation is to enrich the lives of Houstonians and empower the community through the game of golf. For more information on the Astros Golf Foundation, please visit HoustonOpenGolf.com.
