Valero Texas Open at TPC San Antonio
The Oaks course, designed by PGA TOUR legend and World Golf Hall of Fame Member, Greg Norman, with player consultant, Sergio Garcia, reflects the TOUR’s departure from the modern tournament style course (expansive grass areas and spectator mounding) to a more natural look and feel, without sacrificing the fan experience making it very tournament friendly. The Oaks course will host the 100th Anniversary of the PGA TOUR’s Valero Texas Open from March 28th – April 3rd, 2022.
The 2022 edition of the Valero Texas Open, will return to TPC San Antonio’s Oaks course for the 13th year. This will be the fourth year of a 10-year contract extension between the PGA TOUR and Valero Energy Corporation; a deal which positions the tournament in a coveted slot on the TOUR schedule– the week preceding the Masters Tournament.
ABOUT THE VALERO TEXAS OPEN
The Valero Texas Open, first played in 1922, is the 3rd oldest PGA TOUR tournament. It’s only younger than the Western Open (1899) and Canadian Open (1904). If you include the U.S. Open (1895) managed by the USGA, and the PGA Championship (1916) managed by the PGA of America, then the Valero Texas Open is the fifth oldest professional tournament in North America. The Valero Texas Open is the oldest Professional Golf Tour tournament to have been held in the same city its entire existence. Every tournament (92) has been played in San Antonio, Texas.
Its list of champions includes some of the greatest names in golf history: Walter Hagen, Byron Nelson, Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer, Ben Crenshaw, Hale Irwin, Lee Trevino, Nick Price, Justin Leonard, Zach Johnson, Adam Scott, Jimmy Walker and 2021 champion Jordan Spieth, to name a few.
Since Valero became title sponsor in 2002, The Valero Texas Open is always driven by its charitable mission – in 2015, the tournament raised $10.4 million for charity, making us proud yet humbled to become only the fourth PGA TOUR event to eclipse the $100 Million milestone in funds raised for charity. Thanks to generosity of the community, the 2021 edition of the Valero Texas Open, along with the Champions fore Charity fundraising program, and the Valero Benefit for Children, raised a record $16 million, bringing the grand total to $187 million in charitable giving.
