That’s the total number of USGA National
Championships held at Champions Golf Club in Houston, the most of any club in
Texas. The iconic private club established in 1959 by multiple Major
Championship winners Jack Burke Jr. and Jimmy Demaret first hosted the 1969
U.S. Open, which was won by Orville Moody. The Ralph Plummer-designed Cypress
Creek Course also played host to the 1993 U.S. Amateur (won by John Harris) and
the 1998 and 2017 U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateurs, respectively won by Virginia
Grimes and Kelsey Chugg.
