O ne of the best ways you can kick off your Super Bowl weekend in 2017 is by competing in the Indian Wells Pro-Am Invitational on Friday and Saturday, February 4-5. The event returns for its third year in a row at Indian Wells Golf Resort and will feature golf professionals battling it out for a $10,000 purse, while amateurs compete for big-time prizes and bragging rights. The event features a reception and mixer on Fri- day evening followed by the tournament on the Players Course and dinner on Saturday. The Super Bowl kicks off on Sunday afternoon, which means you can cap off an eventful weekend by watching the big game. Here are four reasons why you should play in this year's tournament: SUPER WEEKEND 4 reasons why you should tee it up in the Indian Wells Pro-Am 1) The competition Unless you're participating in the CareerBuilder Challenge (formerly the Bob Hope Classic), there aren't many events in the Coachella Valley where amateurs can compete alongside professional golfers like you can in the Indian Wells Pro Am. It's a unique format and experience. 3) The Players Course Contestants will compete on the John Fought-designed Players Course, which is in prime condition following fall overseed and a reno- vation of its cart paths and bunkers. It was also recently ranked No. 16 by Golf Digest among its best courses you can play in California. 2) The purse and prizes As much as $10,000 will be up for grabs for professional golfers, and amateurs will have the chance to compete for awards and prizes from event sponsors, including stay- and-play packages at some of the nation's top golf resorts. In 2016, the winning pro took home $3,000. 4) The extras From the evening reception and mixer to kick off the Pro-Am on Friday, Feb. 3, to the awards recep- tion and dinner at the completion of play on Saturday, Feb. 4, partici- pants will be treated to live music, great golf, savory meals, and a trip to the Titleist-FootJoy gift shop.
