For the 25th year, it is time to grab your clubs and put on your baddest pants for the most fun golf tournament in town, supporting the tiniest patients at Texas Children’s Hospital Newborn Center.

Whether you’re one of the best golfers or the worst dressers, the annual Bad Pants Open is your opportunity to be one of the staunchest supporters of Texas Children’s Newborn Center®. On Monday, October 16, 2023, Houston’s worst dressed and most generous will gather at The Clubs of Kingwood to save the lives of the city’s tiniest patients.

The Bad Pants Open provides funding for services that go above and beyond the expert medical care provided at Texas Children’s Newborn Center. These include nurse training and education, hands-on bereavement care programs and ensuring each family’s most urgent needs are met -- from covering parking costs to providing meals, transportation, car seats and more. Our goal is to guarantee all families in Texas Children's Newborn Center are comfortable and well cared for, so they can focus on getting their baby healthy and ready to go home sooner.

Please contact the Office of Philanthropy at or 832-824-2945 for more information regarding The Bad Pants Open or to reserve your sponsorship for the tournament today.

Since 1998, the Bad Pants Open has raised more than $7 million to enhance innovation and excellence in the research, treatment, and care of infants at Texas Children’s Newborn Center®. Texas Children’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), is one of the largest specialized facilities of its kind in the nation, and the first designated by the Texas Department of State Health Services as a Level IV NICU — the highest level of care available for premature and critically ill newborns.

Highlighting Support from Bad Pants Open to the NICU in 2022

Transportation support provided over 600 rides to NICU families since May 2022, ensuring families time to be present for their child’s medical care and critical bonding time.

Over 400 families received parking assistance during their NICU admission.

Special NICU backpacks were given to NICU families. These backpacks provide a safe and productive way for our families to transport breastmilk from home and to the hospital.

Over 300 Milestone Bead necklaces have been given to NICU families providing a way for families to celebrate each milestone that their baby hits in the NICU
