The Albertson's Boise open is just over a month away.

This year's tournament will again take place at Hillcrest Country Club. Organizers hope to make a lot more money for local charities this year with some great golf.

"It's going to be super competitive -- it's definitely PGA golf...they're coming through, they're on their way," said Jeff Sanders, executive director of the Boise Open.

There will be new events at this year's Open.

Blue Cross of Idaho and Albertsons are matching $60,000 each for Birdies for a Cause, which helps local non-profits. Spectators are welcome to chip in money as well.

Pro golfers told CBS 2 on Monday that you'll want to keep a close eye on some of the people playing at this year's tournament.

"That's one thing that people here need to realize is there's a lot of players here that are going to be major champions in the future...," said Graham DeLaet, a pro golfer.

There will also be a new Fan Zone on the 18th Hole. For tickets and information click HERE.
