T he Indian Wells Pro-Am Invitational is back for 2016 – and it's going to be better than ever. The second annual event, spon- sored by the City of Indian Wells, will now run over two days, begin- ning on Friday, Feb. 5, with a mixer and reception for all participants. The tournament will tee off on Saturday, Feb. 6, with competition on the Players Course. "We made this change be- cause we wanted all of the par- ticipants in the event – from amateur players to professionals and event sponsors – to have more of an oppor- tunity to mingle, network, and spend time together," said Leven Shirey, Senior Golf Sales & Marketing Man- ager at Indian Wells Golf Resort. "A big aspect of this event is the cama- raderie, and we wanted to facilitate that at an even greater level this time around." The Friday night reception will in- clude food and drink, as well as live music, for an all-around festive at- mosphere. Titleist-FootJoy will also be presenting its mobile retail shop at the reception, and amateur players will each receive a $100 gift card to spend there that night. Another difference to the 2016 event will be the food and beverage offerings. Look for savory barbecue stations on the course during play throughout the day, followed by a prime rib dinner with carving sta- tions on Saturday night. But the real highlight will be the golf on Saturday. With competitors hailing from clubs from all over the West Coast, the tournament will feel more like a national competition rather than sim- ply a Coachella Valley event. "Having teams come from all over the West Coast has increased its fol- lowing and prestige, and it has al- lowed the event to extend its reach and become more of a regional fix- ture, rather than just a Coachella Valley competition, " said Shirey. Lastly, as always, there will be great prizes for golf package getaways. Don't miss your chance to play in this incredible, once-a-year event!
