The Houston Parks and Recreation Department (HPARD) recommends adopting a maximum non-resident greens fee for Memorial Park Golf Course. If Council approves the proposed fee, HPARD projects an increase in revenue to cover costs needed to operate and maintain the course to PGA Tour, Inc standards. In partnership with the Astros Golf Foundation, PGA Tour, Inc., and Memorial Park Conservancy, the City will host the Houston Open on November 2-8, 2020.
The proposed non-resident greens fee is a maximum fee and is only applicable to individuals who are unable to provide documentation of City of Houston residency. The published green fees may be lower than the proposed maximum fees listed below to allow for market adjustments. HPARD will request Council approval only if higher fees are warranted. There will be no change to the current resident greens fee, and residents will have preferential access to the tournament course by limiting the number of rounds available to non-residents. The proposed fees derive from an evaluation of fees for similar regional tournament standard golf courses and an analysis of Memorial Park Golf Course players' zip codes over the past five years.
