The Cameron Champ Foundation is proud to host the Mack Champ Invitational, a tournament for the game’s best junior golfers of diverse backgrounds.

Named in honor of Mack Champ, Cameron’s grandfather who passed away in October of 2019, the tournament focuses on identifying talented diverse players as a way to honor Mack’s legacy.

Our home course is Houston’s Memorial Park Golf Course, which is made available to us by our generous partners at the Astros Golf Foundation. The 36-hole event, for boys and girls ages 11-18, is played every March.

Our invitational provides these junior golfers the opportunity to showcase their talents and attend a clinic with Cameron Champ, a three-time winner on the PGA Tour who played his college golf at Texas A&M.

Memorial Park, which was recently redesigned by Tom Doak to become the new home of the PGA Tour’s Houston Open, is an ideal setting with world-class practice facilities.

Cameron Champ and the Cameron Champ Foundation are proud to host what is sure to become one of the most prestigious tournaments in the world of junior golf.
