Jordan Spieth Partners With Invited as Brand Ambassador

Three-Time Champion Began His Golf Career at Brookhaven Country Club

Invited has welcomed pro golfer Jordan Spieth as both an investor in Invited and a strategic adviser and brand ambassador for the company.

Spieth’s charity, the Jordan Spieth Family Foundation, will also partner with Invited on charitable and community efforts benefitting youth organizations, American veterans and military families. Invited plans to host events at Invited Clubs across the United States to raise funds for Spieth’s Foundation and will create further member programming to support these efforts.

“I was introduced to the game and grew up playing at Invited’s first Club: Brookhaven Country Club in Dallas. I’ve witnessed first-hand how Invited’s Clubs unite people and build relationships that reach well beyond its fairways, greens and courts,” said Spieth. “I’m excited to work with the team at Invited to help grow the company and leverage their unmatched platform to create an even greater impact in our communities. The partnership makes perfect sense as golf continues to expand in exciting ways, reaching new audiences while growing the impact on those who need a helping hand.”

Invited CEO David Pillsbury added, “Since his incredible rise from Junior golf into the professional game, Jordan Spieth’s achievements as a player are astonishing. And while he has already accomplished more on the course than most will in a career, his focus on philanthropy and altruism will leave an even greater impact than any trophies he lifts.

“Our Clubs play an integral role in the lives of communities and of our Members where they play, celebrate and build lifelong friendships. We take great pride in our Clubs and the ways in which they connect social, charitable, family and business elements of a community. We see an incredible opportunity to have Jordan’s investment and expertise join in the momentum our Clubs have as pillars and hubs in the communities we call home.”

Kamaiu Johnson Wins APGA Tournament at the Clubs of Kingwood in Houston

Invited Clubs Gateway ambassador Kamaiu Johnson took home the top prize at the Advocates Pro Golf Association (APGA) Charlie Sifford Centennial Tournament, one of the APGA Tour Farmer’s Insurance Fall series, held at the Clubs of Kingwood in Houston last October.

“The Gateway Club is making a big difference for minority kids like me by welcoming them and giving them resources and facilities that most of us on the APGA Tour didn’t have access to at their age.”

The win placed him in the top of the APGA Lexus Cup standings, thanks to an earlier win at the APGA Mastercard Tour Championship earlier in 2022.

“To win at an Invited property, after playing a practice round with some of the youth Members of the Gateway Club, is the icing on the cake, to be honest,” Johnson told African American Golfer’s Digest. “The Gateway Club is making a big difference for minority kids like me by welcoming them and giving them resources and facilities that most of us on the APGA Tour didn’t have access to at their age.”

88s on the 48th

Legendary Dallas Cowboys Wide Receivers Join Post Malone at Tower Club Dallas

Michael Irvin, Dez Bryant and Drew Pearson, along with rap superstar Post Malone, got together at the Tower Club in downtown Dallas in October to dine with a view from the Club’s 48th-floor setting and make a few bold predictions and promises about the Dallas Cowboys.

Irvin, one of the most beloved #88s in Cowboys history, offered to replicate the dinner if the Cowboys made it to the Super Bowl in February, while Cowboys superfan Malone promised to get the number 88 tattooed on his forehead if the team won the big game.

As of publication, the former Cowboys #88s and Malone were waiting to see if they’ll get their redo (or tattoo) depending on how the Cowboys did in the playoffs, starting January 16 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
