HOUSTON – Due to the effects of Hurricane Harvey as it moved through the area, the Insperity Dave Williams Cougar-Am – hosted by the University of Houston Men’s Golf program – has been postponed and will be played in February at Golf Club of Houston.
The Cougars’ annual event now tees off with a shotgun start at 1 p.m., Monday, Feb. 12, 2018, on the Tournament Course at Golf Club of Houston. All proceeds from this annual fundraiser benefit Project 17, the Houston Men’s Golf booster club. The tournament was originally scheduled for Sept. 22.
Individual and team spots are open, but interested fans are encouraged to make reservations. Teams can purchase a foursome for $5,000, while individuals can play for $1,250 per person. That provides participants with opportunities to play with a Champions Tour professional or former Houston Golf star and includes food, drinks and a tee gift.
Fans who are unable to play in the tournament can still contribute to the program and receive Houston Golf apparel with a $500 donation.
