The Pro-Am Golf Tournament is an annual fund raiser that is a crucial source of funding for the Black Diamond Foundation. Teams of three amateurs and one pro attempt to "go low" on the Black Diamond Quarry. The event includes a dinner the evening before the tournament as well as many silent auctions and drawings.
The dates for this season's Pro-Am are January 19-20. The pre-tournament dinner will be Sunday, January 19 with the Tournament scheduled for Monday, January 20. This returns the tournament to its traditional slot on the calendar. The tournament marks the start of the main Black Diamond season and is scheduled adjacent to the PGA show in Orlando which allows our members to invite their pros from their northern clubs.
We are keeping the format the same as previous years; a shamble with three participants paired with a PGA professional. This format has proven to be enjoyable and allows a reasonable pace of play. It is not too early to invite your friends and summer pro!
Escalante golf does not charge the Foundation for use of the golf course. Because of this, we are not paying to play our own course with a greater percentage of the entry fee being a donation to the Foundation.
