Want to play in the American Express pro-am? A spot could be yours for $30,000

“We’re not taking out ads,” said tournament director Pat McCabe, who noted that the field is made up of returning business, inquiries from word of mouth, and current players bringing clients and friends along. There are various sponsorships and packages available, but the off-the-street buy-in is $30,000 (a portion of which is tax deductible). Other than the AT&T Pebble Beach, which tends to be on an invite-only basis, there’s no other opportunity to play alongside a Tour pro during competitive rounds.

Pretty exclusive club to play in a PGA Tour Pro-Am.
