Shriners Hospitals for Children Open 2018 at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas

The Shriners Hospitals for Children Open requires more than 800 volunteers and 35% come from outside of Las Vegas!


“The Shriners Hospitals for Children Open is an event that is built around so many interactive actives and most importantly the mission of our title sponsor, they will always remain our most important factors. However, the past three years we made it a priority to bring some of the PGA TOUR stars to Las Vegas – we believed it would be them ultimately that would move our spectators and clients more than anything. And after an amazing week of golf at TPC Summerlin, the method to our madness worked. We had record crowds, great golf and crowned an outstanding champion in Bryson DeChambeau on Sunday. Thanks to the Las Vegas community, sponsors, volunteers, staff and our title sponsor Shriners Hospitals for Children ”
