The holiday season is here, and the Houston Holiday Classic—Golden Tee’s final tournament of the year—is closing in fast.
Power Events’ finale weekend is expected to be a doozy; two tournaments for the price of one. Jake's Philly Steak will play host to the event, which will get underway starting Thursday, Dec. 5. It will run through that entire weekend, and by Sunday, Dec. 8 two champions will be crowned.
First, the Houston Holiday Classic (at least $7,500 added) will take place starting Saturday with a five-course qualifier. Entry into this event is $100.
Once qualifying is complete, match play will begin later on Saturday evening, which is a slight change from other events. On Sunday, the tourney will conclude and the first winner of the weekend will be crowned.
After a brief timeout, Power Events’ Player of the Year Tournament will get rolling. The results from the Houston Holiday Classic will be tallied with the other events from earlier this year, and the 32 players who have earned the most PEGT Points throughout 2013 will be placed in a 32-man bracket.
It will be double-elimination, and the winner will be crowned Player of the Year. At that point, the door on a wonderful year of tournament play will officially close.
Later on Sunday evening, the second champion of the weekend will be crowned. And with that, the Golden Tee tournament season will officially conclude for 2013.
It’s not just these two events that will take place over the weekend, either. There will be a Closest-to-the-Pin Contest on Thursday night, and the always-popular Handicap Tournament will take place on Friday.
It’s not just about the tournament—or in this case the tournaments. It’s about the weekend and the celebration of our favorite game.
If you can’t make it to Houston, we have you covered. We’ll be streaming all the tournament action on Power Events’ website and also on Goldentee.com. While there’s nothing quite like seeing it in person, you’ll want to tune in regardless.
You can reserve your spot in tournament by visiting Power Events’ official website, although walkups are always welcome.
Celebrate the end of the year and the holiday season in style. Head to Houston for Power Events' superb final GT weekend.
