Houston Open to welcome return of PGA Tour fans in U.S.

The Nov. 5-8 event at Memorial Park will allow 2,000 daily, following the preceding week’s Bermuda stop in admitting fans

Allowed: A limited number of spectators for the PGA Tour’s Houston Open next month, officials announced in a news release. The Houston Open, to be played Nov. 5-8 at Memorial Park Golf Course, will be the first U.S. site to allow fans since the season was suspended March 12 after the first round of the Players Championship because of the growing coronavirus pandemic. Masks must be worn when onsite. Next week’s Bermuda Championship also will allow a limited number of spectators. In Houston, daily tickets will be priced at $79 (Thursday’s first round) and $109 (Friday through Sunday), including grab-and-go food options, for the return to municipal Memorial Park Golf Course for the first time since 1963. Tickets will go on sale beginning Wednesday at HoustonOpenGolf.com. Since the PGA Tour returned in mid-June, spectators have been banned from tournament grounds because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Nov. 12-15 Masters Tournament, which will follow the Houston Open on the PGA Tour schedule, announced earlier this year that it will ban spectators.
