DELL MATCH PLAY
The 2019 boating season has begun and it’s again time for the PGA Dell match play. This event is hosted and brought to you by the Austin Country Club. This is the 4th year of the event being hosted here in Austin. It is to be held from Wednesday March 27th to Sunday 31st. The top 64 players in the world will be playing for a purse exceeding 9 million dollars. Attending will be defending champions Bubba Watson, Dustin Johnson and Jason Day.
Austin Country Club is a private golf club in the southern United States, located in Austin, Texas. Established 120 years ago in 1899, the club moved to its third and present site in 1984, a challenging layout designed by noted course architect Pete Dye. The course spans 180 acres and it is one of the oldest clubs in Texas. The Austin Country Club was home of Harvey Penick who is one of the greatest golf instructors who ever lived.
The present Davenport Ranch site is west of central Austin on the south bank of the Colorado River (Lake Austin), just southeast of the Pennybacker Bridge. Following a renovation in 2015, it hosted the WGC Match Play championship in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
The previous location was in east Austin and is now the public Riverside Golf Course, adjacent to the Riverside campus of Austin Community College. Expansion of the college altered several holes, but the majority of the course is intact. At this location, Austin Country Club spawned major champions Ben Crenshaw and Tom Kite, coached by teaching professional Harvey Penick.
