• Pro-Am Events

  • The Southwest Kansas Pro-Am is filled with many events throughout the week. Events Include:

    Corporate Appreciation Party & Hall of Fame Inductee Ceremony
    On Wednesday evening, all the major, corporate, and special sponsors come together for the Corporate Appreciation ‘Pick’ Party.  Each sponsor has the opportunity to pick the professional golf to play on their team.  The evening begins with a social hour, hor d’ovueres, and a live band. 

    During this event is also the Hall of Fame Inductee Ceremony.  Each year, an individual who has had a tremendous impact on the Pro-Am is selected and inducted in the Pro-Am Hall of Fame. 

    Jr. Golf Clinic
    On Thursday evening the Jr. Golf Clinic is held for our younger golfers at Buffalo Dunes Golf Course.  The clinic is instructed by the head pros at both courses along with other professional golfers competing in the Pro-Am.  This is a wonderful opportunity for junior golfers interested in golf to learn more about the techniques used by the professionals.  All skill levels are welcome!

    Pro-Am Main Tournament
    More than 240 amateurs and over 90 professionals compete in the Pro-Am tournament each year.  Teams of 5 amateurs and 1 professional play on two alternating golf courses.  Amateurs and pros play on Friday and Saturday.  Amateurs finish on Saturday while the top 1/3rd of professionals come back for the final round on Sunday.  The professional winner is guaranteed 100% of professional entry fees.

    Friday Night Dinner Event
    The most popular event held at the Pro-Am is the Friday Night Dinner Party.  With the Pro-Am being a one of the most anticipated events of the year in Southwest Kansas, all community members are invited to attend.  After the tournament ends each day, everyone is invited to come out and enjoy dinner.  Friday night events include the popular Closest to The Pin Contest and the Helicopter Ball Drop, dinner along with a live band.

    Closest to the Pin Contest
    This crowd pleasing event begins with each corporate sponsor’s professional pick hitting a ball trying to get “closest to the pin”.  All other professionals may be purchased and entered into the contest.  The winner who is closest to the pin along with the sponsor/purchaser will win fantastic prizes. 

    Helicopter Ball Drop
    On Saturday night, 1000 golf balls are dropped out of a helicopter over previously marked “pins” for our Helicopter Ball Drop.  Previously sold golf balls are numbered and dropped onto the fairway for a chance at prizes.  With several “pins” previously set, the golf ball closest to each pin wins.  Anyone can participate in the fun event.
