Dean & DeLuca Invitational at Colonial TicketsSet amid the Fort Worth's modern landscape of museums and cultural institutions, the Colonial Country Club provides an exclusive, quiet escape to its private members. Borne out of a desire to bring bentgrass greens to Fort Worth, the original Colonial Golf Club hosted the US Open in 1941. The club was sold to its members the following year when it took on its current name: Colonial Country Club. In 1946, the club hosted the first Colonial Championship, a PGA Tour tournament that continues to take place annually despite many name changes. Colonial is the home of a course that is still considered one of the best golf courses in the country. As a result, the club has received every honor in existence that can be bestowed upon a golf club. Dean & DeLuca sponsored this particular event in 2016 and 2017. In 2018, the name reverted back to Fort Worth Invitational. The event is currently known as the Charles Schwab Challenge, named after its current title sponsor, financial firm Charles Schwab. Today, you can witness the famed tournament live. Get your Dean & Deluca Invitational tickets at StubHub.
