Houston, Texas is included in well known golf destinations. The old world style of Brae Burn Country Club came up in conversations invariably when I was talking with golfing aficionados.
A traditional layout and one of the city’s oldest, established in 1926, this course puts a premium on shot placement off the tees. There are opportunities for long hitters to cut off some yardage but not without risk of posting a big number. A true thinker’s course.
Originally designed by architect John Bredemus in 1926, the course was redesigned in 1991 by Carlton Gipson. Today the course’s dramatic elevation changes and rolling character — unexpected in a location so close in — has earned BraeBurn the distinction of being one of the few sites in Texas to be chosen to host both a U S Open and a U S Amateur qualifying tournament in one year.
We now have Pam Terry co-coordinating the series of 7 tournaments in the Houston area. There will be six tournaments and a Tee Off all played before the end of July.
We’ll keep you posted on the dates as they are secured right after the first of the year. I am sure Pam will appreciate your help if you have any suggestions about playing in the Houston area.
She spent most of her time in the Houston area and is originally from Brownsville, Texas. She stays busy as the COO of Powerful Women International, the Sponsorship & Events Director for TechExecs, provides online and mobile marketing services.
Glena Stephenson is the co-coordinating the golf tournaments in the Houston area.
Most of the set up work, including the corporate sponsorship can be done from anywhere, so it is great to have Pam and Glena on the UBU team!
