We are excited to be hosting professional golf in Raleigh again this spring. The health and safety of all associated with the REX Hospital Open is our top priority. The tournament setup may look different due to the pandemic, but we are planning a top-tier experience with a focus on safety. We are working closely with the PGA TOUR to implement measures on site to provide a safe environment. NC state and local guidelines will be followed closely to ensure a safe and memorable experience at the course.
