Stars of PGA TOUR Champions to return to The Woodlands in April for Insperity Invitational
THE WOODLANDS, TX – Many of golf’s greatest names on the PGA TOUR Champions will be returning to the tee at The Woodlands Country Club Tournament Course, April 26 – May 2, for the 2021 Insperity Invitational presented by UnitedHealthcare.
The Tradition of Excellence returns to The Woodlands after the 2020 edition of the Insperity Invitational was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be back on the PGA TOUR Champions schedule this year and are thankful to our corporate partners, including Insperity and UnitedHealthcare, for sticking with us during these unprecedented times as we developed a plan to safely welcome golf’s best back to The Woodlands,” said Bryan Naugle, Executive Director, Insperity Invitational, who added the tournament will follow health guidelines outlined by the Center for Disease Control and the PGA TOUR.
“To ensure the safety of our entire community, we are planning a scaled-down version of our traditional tournament week festivities, but we will ensure there are plenty of opportunities to engage the community in our award-winning event on the weekend of tournament week.”
The focus of this year’s tournament will be two-fold. Tournament staff are putting the finishing touches on plans to host the Woodforest National Bank Championship Pro-Am, April 28-29. The 17th edition of the Insperity Invitational championship play will take place April 30 – May 2. No other events will be scheduled during tournament week.
While spectators will not be permitted access to the golf course during practice rounds and Pro-Am days, Naugle and his staff look forward to welcoming golf fans in Houston area back to The Woodlands Country Club Tournament Course Friday through Sunday to enjoy FREE admission to watch the 54-holes of competition play. Masks will be mandatory for ALL spectators on-site. Parking and transportation information will be released in the coming weeks.
“The players, volunteers and community-at-large remains our primary concern in our preparation to safely allow for a return to play while the pandemic continues to run its course,” added Naugle. “That said, we remain committed in making a positive impact on our community through hosting the Insperity Invitational while continuing to entertain golf fans with an incredible field that is taking shape.”
Volunteer opportunities still exist for those looking to get involved with the Insperity Invitational. Walking Scorers, Marshals and a new Safety committee are just a few of the options. The Insperity Invitational has implemented an extensive set of COVID-19 health and safety measures to ensure all volunteers feel comfortable and safe on-site.
