PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem announced in October 2008 that the Valero Texas Open will be moving to the AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio.
Finchem spoke of the tournament's future move during a Founder Membership launch evening in San Antonio. The confirmation of a site change followed an announcement in June of 2008 that the Valero Texas Open is moving from the PGA TOUR Fall Series to become part of the FedExCup competition.
TPC San Antonio is a 36-hole golf facility adjacent to the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa that currently is under construction. The resort complex opened in early 2010. Greg Norman has designed the AT&T Oaks Course, with input from Sergio Garcia as the player consultant. Pete Dye designed the AT&T Canyons Course with the assistance of Champions Tour member Bruce Lietzke.
"I'm very pleased to confirm what long has been speculated, that the Valero Texas Open will be moving to TPC San Antonio, with a target date of 2010," Finchem said. "We are very excited about the prospect of the AT&T Oaks Course serving as the host course and the JW Marriott Resort as the new home for the tournament. Combined with the shift to May as part of the FedExCup schedule, we believe the Valero Texas Open is well positioned for the future in terms of growth and continued strong charitable contributions."
