OUR MISSION: The Houston Golf Association exists to make a difference in the Houston Community, and its youth, through golf and charity.

HGA, a not-for-profit, tax exempt 501c (3) organization, uses golf promotion to generate funds that can help worthy causes make a difference in our community. A prolific charitable fundraiser, bolstered by a strong group of volunteers, the HGA has generated more than $62 million for local charity through its golf-related activities since 1974.

In addition to making sure the funds generated by the Shell Houston Open are put to work locally in a diverse manner, the HGA annually funds three ongoing benefiting charities. It also underwrites the costs of a junior golf tournament program, The First Tee of Greater Houston and the HGA Academic Scholarship Program. Find out more about these HGA programs by visiting their respective web pages.

Since 1946 the HGA has brought high profile professional and amateur golf events to the Greater Houston Area. In addition to the Shell Houston Open PGA TOUR event (at Golf Club of Houston's Tournament Course), the HGA has helped secure:

  • 1969 U.S. Open
  • 1967 Ryder Cup Matches
  • 1981 USGA Men's Amateur Public Links
  • 1989 USGA Senior Men's Amateur
  • 1989 USGA Senior Women's Amateur
  • 1993 USGA Men's Amateur Championship 
  • 1998 USGA Women's Mid-Amateur Championship 
  • 1990, 1997, 1999, 2001, 2003 PGA TOUR Championships
  • 2006 Nationwide Tour Championship
