“Houston is at its best and most beautiful when government, nonprofits, individuals, and businesses work together to make our city better for all Houstonians” stated Sylvester Turner as he unveiled Houston Golf’s newest crown jewel- the PGA-rated Memorial Park municipal golf course and it’s $18.5 million renovation.

This is especially true when it came to the dedicated efforts of Sylvester Turner, Houston Parks, and Astros owner and CEO Jim Crane in rebuilding and renovating Memorial Park to make it the second PGA-rated municipal golf course in the nation. Several Houston councilmembers were present for the grand re-opening of the new and improved Memorial Golf Course which will host the Houston Open in 2020, and puts Houston on the elite golf map.

On Monday, November 3rd, the Astros Golf Foundation and the City of Houston held the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new and improved course and park. With its’ new renovations, there are completely new irrigation and drainage systems that use flood water, and most importantly, it encourages young kids to become engaged and acquainted with golf. Additionally, the great signature park will be on full display for visitors all across the country during international golf tournaments!

Congratulations Mayor Sylvester Turner, along with Parks and Recreation Director Steve Wright, Astros Owner Jim Crane, and the Astros Foundation, for continuing to put Houston on the map nationally.
