Our ProAms

 We have two types of ProAms:

ProAm Pro+ Event

Professional + designated amateurs
Professional assembles the team
Professional players play for a Professional purse, while amateurs team with the professional and play for a team prize.
Professional players at these events pay nothing to play if they stay with another team member. If they choose a single room, they pay extra for that, and they pay for a guest if they choose to bring one.

An example of pricing for a ProAm Pro+ Event:

Professional entry $ 0 (if staying in double occupancy with a team member)
Amateur entry (double occupancy) $4,795.
Single room +1,200
Non playing guest +1,500
The Amateur entry fee partly offsets the professional costs, so professionals play free.

ProAm Destination Event

Teams of 4 or 5 (depending on course)
May include a professional, or may be all amateurs.
All players pay the same rate. Team members may choose to contribute to professional entry fee if they include a professional player, but the same rate applies to each player.
Destination events are priced lower because the pro portion is not distributed to each amateur.
There is NO professional purse
Everyone plays according to the Tournament format rules. Pros scores are included for the team at net—no handicapping.

An example for pricing for the SAME event as above, but as a ProAm Destination event:

Professional entry $3,795
Amateur (per player-double occupancy) $3,795
Single room +1,200
Non playing guest +1,500
