40th Annual ProAm moves to August in 2016

The 40th Annual Rockford ProAm will be held on Monday August 15th, 2016 at Rockford Country Club. Entering year 40 as the longest free standing ProAm in the country, the Rockford ProAm has donated over $3 million dollars to various northern Illinois health and human services organizations throughout the years. For 39 years, the event has always achieved its primary goal of bringing an entertaining day of high level professional golf to Rockford and the surrounding communities.

The ProAm traditionally has been held in mid-July and, over the last decade, has been up against the British Open to lure professional golfers to the Tournament. In 2016, the Olympic games in Rio have helped necessitate a one-time change to the PGA Tour schedule that moves our closest event, the John Deere Classic (JDC) in Silvis, IL to a Sunday August 14th finish. A potential benefit of moving the date away from the British Open offers a unique situation which will increase opportunities for the Rockford ProAm to draw from a larger professional golfers pool.
