Mark Harrison, director of operations for the NTPGA, said:

"The Texas Women's Open is one of the premier state opens for females in the United States. The event has steadily grown over the past eight years thanks in part to our partners at Eastern Hills Country Club. The club and its members look forward to hosting the event every year and role out the red carpet for all our contestants and sponsors. The golf course is always in tremendous condition and provides a difficult, yet fair test of golf. We look forward to enhancing the event even further and are excited about the future."

The Texas Women's Open was first played in 1935, and continued into the early 1950s, when it was part of the earliest LPGA schedules. The tournament discontinued play after 1954, however, until the NTPGA revived it in 2001.
