The PGA Tour now moves from Mexico to Texas and a new/old venue. This will be a new venue to the current tour players, but it was home to the Houston Open from 1951 to 1963. Memorial Park Golf Course is known as one of the best municipal courses in America, designed by John Bredemus the course was originally a 9-hole course with sand greens, built near the hospital at Camp Logan for use by convalescent soldiers.

In 1994, on behalf of Mayor Bob Lanier, Houston Park Board member Nancy Reynolds began a campaign to restore the golf course and preserve its historical quality while allowing for modern maintenance methods to help sustain the courses future. In 1995, the newly renovated 600-acre course opened with a floodlit driving range, putting and chipping greens, and a new clubhouse.
