Houston Open moves to new course in 2003

The Houston Open, a PGA Tour fixture at The Woodlands for the past 27 years, will move to the new Redstone Golf Club in 2003, the Houston Golf Association said Tuesday.

``Our board said all along that it would take a compelling reason to move the Houston Open,'' said Steve Timms, HGA executive director and Shell Houston Open tournament director. ``The Redstone Companies offered reasons that truly were compelling.''

The HGA's contract at The Woodlands expires after the March 28-31 tournament. The PGA Tour event has been played at The Woodlands, 25 miles north of downtown, since 1975, including the past 17 years at the Tournament Players Course.

Redstone will host the tournament through at least 2012 under the new contract, officials said.

The Redstone Golf Club complex already contains a 7,350-yard championship golf course, designed by pro golfer Peter Jacobsen and former PGA Tour player Jim Hardy.

Construction will begin in March on a 24,000-square foot clubhouse including a 300-space parking lot.
