Lufkin’s Crown Colony Country Club is bringing professional golf back to East Texas.

About 100 players on the Adams Pro Tour will tee off July 8 in a five-day tournament.

The Dallas-based tour attracts a field of aspiring PGA Tour golfers with an estimated purse of $100,000. The champion’s share is $15,000. Crown Colony’s head golf pro Ben Burns says it will be an economic boost for Lufkin.

Commentator Brian O'Nuanain revels in this year's Rider's Cup and an unexpected victory.
