"Texas Swing" On PGA Tour's 2009 Schedule

The Texas Open, Byron Nelson Championship and Colonial will make up a three-week "Texas Swing" in 2009, it was finally confirmed when the 2009 PGA Tour schedule was announced.

The Valero Texas Open moves from the Fall Series portion of the schedule to a Spring date in mid-May, and is followed on the 2009 schedule by the Nelson and Colonial. The Shell Houston Open remains separate from the other three, taking place in April the week before The Masters.

Here are the four Texas events on the schedule:

  • April 2-5: Shell Houston Open, Redstone Golf Club (Tournament Course), Houston
  • May 14-17: Valero Texas Open, La Cantera Golf Club (Resort Course), San Antonio
  • May 21-24: HP Byron Nelson Classic, TPC Four Seasons Resort, Irving
  • May 28-31: Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, Colonial Country Club, Fort Worth

  1. All great news. San Antonio, TX is soon to be a MAJOR golf destination. With the new spring date and new location - the new AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio in 2010 - more people are sure to take notice of the great venues available in our area.

    Great names behind all of this. The AT&T Oaks Course is designed by Greg Norman and the AT&T Canyons Course designed by Pete Dye, both in the Hill Country... surrounded by rolling hills, the courses are part of the new JW Marriott Hill Country Resort & Spa opening in March of 2010. The new resort will be the largest of the JW Marriotts with 1002 rooms and 140,000 square feet of exhibit space.

    I’m looking forward to the New Year and having a new excuse to drive to the Hill country. The area is full of historic sites, vineyards, music legends and diverse culture. With 300 plus days of sunshine a year my first thought was that it was the perfect choice for these courses and this tournament!
