2017 Partner Luncheon
The luncheon included special guest speaker, Lance Barrow, CBS Sports Coordinating & Lead Game Producer of Golf & NFL.
Earlier this week on Tuesday, the Valero Texas Open hosted lunch at The Hotel Emma’s beautiful Elephant Cellar to reconnect with current sponsors and provide an opportunity for prospective sponsors to co-mingle and learn more about the partnership opportunities available through the tournament.

This Partner Luncheon was led by the Trailblazers, a volunteer group of business leaders dedicated to supporting the Valero Texas Open and its charitable mission through the sale of corporate recognition and benefit packages associated with the tournament. Trailblazers come from diverse professions and industries, providing their time, talent and energy, contributing valuable insight and a wide range of experience to the Valero Texas Open.

This intimate luncheon included special guest speaker, Lance Barrow, CBS Sports Coordinating & Lead Game Producer of Golf & NFL. Since 1997, this Texas native has produced all of CBS’ golf coverage for the PGA TOUR, including Valero Texas Open’s broadcast on CBS last year. Barrow shared his insight into the production of one of the toughest sports to broadcast since it includes 18-hole locations over hundreds of acres of land, 100+ golfers competing over four days and all the other behind the scenes details that help deliver television broadcasts to more than 1 billion households around the globe.

Barrow, a long-time friend of the tournament, thanked existing sponsors for their continuous support and encouraged other guests to consider how their respective companies can get involved.

For those who weren’t able to attend but are interested in learning more about becoming a sponsor of the Valero Texas Open, please reach out to our sales team ( to discuss the many partnership opportunities that help further our tournament’s charitable mission in the community.
