Birdies for Charity

Tuesday, October 9, 2018 - Friday, April 12, 2019

Birdies for Charity® is a fundraising program that gives participating charities and schools the opportunity to generate contributions through the Valero Texas Open. Funds are generated by soliciting donations from individuals and corporations and 100% of the funds we generate are donated to Kinetic Kids.

Benefits for Kinetic Kids

Since 2012, Kinetic Kids has raised over $65,000 through donations, a 7% match and incentive prize money from Valero.  Every dollar donated is maximized to help even more children with special needs participate in our programs

What is a birdie?

In golf, a birdie is a score of 1-under par on any individual hole. Par is the expected number of strokes it should take an expert golfer to complete a hole.  For example, if Hole 13 is a Par 5, the golfer makes a “birdie” when they only use 4 strokes to get the ball from the tee box into the hole.

  • 2014 – 1,784 birdies
  • 2015 – 2,103 birdies
  • 2016 – 1,834 birdies
  • 2017 – 1,975 birdies
  • 2018 – 2,904 birdies
