Home CHANGE CAN BE A GOOD THING!

The Valero Texas Open is on the move. PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem has announced that it will be moving to the AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio once the facility is completed and ready for play, likely in 2010. Finchem spoke of the tournament’s future move during a Founder Membership launch in San Antonio. The confirmation of a site change follows an announcement in June that the Valero Texas Open is moving from the PGA Tour Fall Series to May in 2009 to become part of the FedExCup competition.
“I’m very pleased to confirm that the Valero Texas Open will be moving to TPC San Antonio, with a target date of 2010,” Finchem said. “We are very excited about the prospect of the AT&T Oaks Course serving as the host course and the JW Marriott Resort as the new home for the tournament. Combined with the shift to May as part of the FedExCup schedule, we believe the Valero Texas Open is well positioned for the future in terms of growth and continued strong charitable contributions.”
The tournament has been held at La Cantera Golf Club since 1995. “We look forward to hosting the Valero Texas Open for the 15th time at La Cantera this coming May. The success we’ve enjoyed there has put us in a position to take advantage of the tremendous growth opportunities that TPC San Antonio will offer,” said Tony Piazzi, President and CEO of Golf San Antonio, which produces the Valero Texas Open.
The TPC San Antonio is a 36-hole golf facility adjacent to the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa, which is currently under construction. The resort complex is scheduled to open by early 2010. Greg Norman designed the AT&T Oaks Course, with input from Sergio Garcia as the player consultant. Pete Dye is designing the AT&T Canyons Course with the assistance of Bruce Lietzke.
