Welcome to Champions Golf Club

Where the Game Comes Alive!



Champions Golf Club, a staple of American dreams made real by founders Jackie Burke Jr. and Jimmy Demaret (1910-1983).  A year after his 1956 Masters victory in Augusta, Georgia, Burke opened Champions with Demaret, himself a three-time Masters champion (1940, 1947, 1950), in their hometown of Houston, Texas. They enlisted fellow Houstonian Ralph Plummer to be the architect of the esteemed Cypress Creek course, which opened in 1959.  Five years later, the Jack Rabbit course, designed by George Fazio, was constructed adjacent to the Cypress Creek course. In 2002, George’s nephew, Tom Fazio, helped update his uncle’s course design.  

Over the years, Champions has achieved a well-earned reputation for hosting high-profile events including:
·   1967 Ryder Cup
·   1969 U.S. Open
·   1993 U.S. Amateur
·   1998 Women’s Mid-Amateur
·   The TOUR Championship  

Fundamentally, Champions is a place where golf is played for the right reasons. Competition, skill and fair play remain core values among its members who are committed to excellence.
