The Blonde Side at the 2016 Shell Houston Open

This weekend marks one of my favorite Houston events each year – the Shell Houston Open.

Aside from my favorite part of the event – the caddy races on hole #16, there are obviously a lot of other cool things about SHO, and even some new things, like the fan enhancements.

Here are just a few additions fans can expect to see at the 2017 SHO, the ones I think are the best, obviously!

Shell Houston Open 9-Hole Social Media Challenge: Patrons can participate in a fun social media challenge by completing a scorecard of different social media activations, like selfies, twitter questions and other fun photo opportunities located around holes 18, 17 and 16. Completed and returned scorecards result in free prizes Thursday through Sunday.


Regions Bank Greenskeeper Venue: Now presented by Regions Bank, the Greenskeeper located on No. 17 green features an open-air skybox. Food and beverages are included with ticket purchase.

Academy Sports + Outdoors Hole-in-One Challenge: Open throughout the tournament, fans are welcome to attempt a 50-yard chip shot for exciting prizes on The First Tee® of Greater Houston short course.

Hendrick’s Party Deck at 16: Get close to the action and excitement on 16. Guest will enjoy a cash bar, tables, and excellent views. Presented by William Grants & Sons, the deck is attached to public grandstands that offer additional seating options on the course’s famous par 3 hole.

Craft Beer Corner: Located by the No. 17 green, visitors can enjoy a wide selection of local Houston beers.

SHO is just another Houston event I’ve come to know and love and it’s one reason I have stayed committed to living in Houston at The Millennium Kirby.
