We’re honoring the Fort Worth people who have made the Colonial a success. The Colonial Invitational – in its inaugural year as the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational – begins May 23 at Colonial Country Club.

Colonial Invitational - Briggs Freeman Sotheby's International Realty - M.C. Hamilton

M.C. Hamilton was as widely known for his quail lapel pin as he was for his love of people. Whether it was playing golf, hunting quail or serving as the 1992-1993 Colonial Golf Tournament chairman, he was always looking for a way to bring people together. It seemed only fitting when he first invited the tournament’s hosting committee to his home for a fried quail breakfast.

Where do you watch the action when you’re at the Colonial Invitational? The Colonial Invitational – in its inaugural year as the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational – begins May 23 at Colonial Country Club.

If you’re not at Hole 13, you’re not at the party. At 171 yards, 13 is the shortest hole on the Colonial Country Club course and one of the most difficult. Time and again the challenge sets back even the most skilled golfers. Double bogeys and worse are not uncommon.

We’re counting down the days with tributes to some of the tournament’s invaluable volunteers. The Colonial Invitational – in its inaugural year as the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational – begins May 23 at Colonial Country Club.

Steve Gray has been offered many positions in his 20 years volunteering at the Colonial Golf Tournament, but has never been tempted to give up what he calls the best volunteer job at the tournament. As director of the Pro-Am competition, Gray manages 12 assistants and 80 volunteers and spends about eight months planning the event each year. But, he said, “It’s all about having a good time.”

The Colonial Invitational – in its inaugural year as the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational – begins May 23 at Colonial Country Club. We’re counting down the days with tributes to some of the tournament’s changemakers.

Susan Nix had a hard time finding her niche at Colonial Country Club. Admirable but futile attempts at golf and tennis proved neither were her sport. Deciding that her strengths could be put to better use than sitting at the pool all day, she took up volunteering. Thanks to Nix’s passion and poor putting skills, the Colonial Golf Tournament has benefited from 35 years of her dedicated time, marketing savvy and contagious enthusiasm.

This year’s tournament is May 23-29 at Colonial Country Club.
