On Monday, two tournaments take place on 4 golf courses simultaneously. LPGA and Texas PGA golfers participate in a ProAm event while all the other participants play in the main GAC golf tournament.
Walden on Lake Conroe
In its inaugural 2004 event, tournament organizer and Board Co-Chair Dan McIntyre, raised $10,000 for cancer research. Players took on the challenging and picturesque Walden on Lake Conroe golf course, approximately 40 miles north of Houston. Today, participants in this annual event continue to enjoy golf, a party and live and silent auctions and proceeds exceed $150,000 annually. Winners participate as platinum sponsors at the GAC Houston November events. Walden on Lake Conroe also holds a 100 Holes of Golf event where participants play 100+ holes in a day. Sponsors commit to a donation for each hole played. Walden on Lake Conroe enjoys tremendous support from the Club Members and local community who look forward to the tournament each year.
