New Course at Redstone

Last week, the Houston Chronicle's weekly golf notebook included information about the new Tom Fazio course at Carlton Woods. This week, there's news of an addition at Redstone.

Redstone, of course, hosts the Shell Houston Open. Beginning next year, the tournament will be played on the new course designed by Rees Jones and called, not surprisingly, the Tournament Course.

The Chronicle reports:

Redstone Golf Club's new Rees Jones design, straightforwardly named the Tournament Course, hosts the Shell Houston Open beginning in 2006 and is almost
ready for daily-fee play.

A tour of the layout with Redstone's Charlie Epps and pro Billy Sitton turned up interesting holes that make this a great track to play and a better one at which to watch a golf tournament.

The new track will open for daily fee play on Aug. 1. More info is available at
