What Makes the K2 Golf Pro-Am Series Special?

 

Most Pro-Am settings are similar in makeup; a foursome with one professional and three amateurs, a shotgun start with a meal included, and at the end of the day the hand full of winners are announced and the amateurs cash in at the host facility golf shop and then heads for home.  K2 Golf is structured to accommodate its players differently:

 

Currently there is no limit to the number of amateurs a professional can bring.  The team format is one professional and one amateur with the professional pairing up with each of their amateurs.  Instead of trying to choose three amateurs for the team, each club brings as many as they like. 

 

The professionals win cash and the amateurs receive gift certificates, however the amateur winnings go to their own golf shop.  The amateurs cash in at their own golf shop which helps support their club.  They can save up their winnings to make a big purchase or do their Christmas shopping, all at their own club. 

 

A lunch is only included in the Pro-Lady events.   There is no lunch included in the Pro-Am events to keep the purse as big as possible.

 

We use a modified stableford system (a quota points system) for the events for both professionals and amateurs.  Once a player participates we maintain a quota for them.  The only scores that apply to this system are tournament scores from the K2 Golf events.  Plus, safe guards are in place to prevent a player from purposely attempting to drastically adjust their quota.  This system proves to be very accurate in reflecting the correct quotas for the participants.  

 

The Pro-Am Events use a tee time starting system instead of a shotgun start.  Now you can plan your starting time to accommodate you and your amateurs’ schedule. 

 

Six different games are available for the professionals and seven different games for the amateurs.  Every player has a chance to win in either the team or individual events regardless of how the other players in their group play.  See details on the “Professional Information” and “Amateur Information” page.

 

Professionals do not pay a membership fee.  Amateur memberships are an annual payment but are good for twelve months from purchase.  They can join any time of year and still have a year’s worth of value.

 

The events run continuously year round.  A typical year includes 24 to 30 Pro-Am events and 6 to 12 Pro-Lady events.  Some Pro-Am events are on back-to-back days to create a road trip for the players.

 

Each event sports four different sets of tees: one set for junior professionals at approximately 6700 to 6800 yards, one set for senior professionals and amateurs under fifty at 6400-6500 yards, one set for amateurs age 50 through 64 at 6100-6200 yards and one set for amateurs 65 and over and female professionals at 5800-5900 yards.  Everyone enjoys their round at a length that suits them!

 


 

Back to Back Events are Very Popular


During certain times of the year many of the Pro-Am events are at multi-course facilities.  These events are structured to give the participants a chance to play two events in two days.  Many of the participating clubs use these events as a road trip for their members.  They are two separate events and players have the choice to play on either day or on both days.  What a perfect time to gather the gang and make a trip to a great facility!



Pro-Lady Event Pick Back Up in the Fall

 

There are no Pro-Lady events scheduled during the summer months.  They will pick up again in the fall.  Our first fall Pro-Lady will be held at Harbor Hills Country Club in Lady Lake on Thursday, October 18.  This rolling course, high above Lake Griffin is a favorite stop for the K2 Pro-Ladies.  Look for more detail on the “News and Information” page in the near future.
