The 2nd Annual Tamarisk Pro-Am was contested on Thursday April 30th at Tamarisk Country Club. With 26 teams comprised of 1 professional and 3 amateurs it was bound to be a fantastic event. The players were met with world class conditions and warm temperatures that eventually led to low scoring. Shane Ponchot, Director of Golf at The Hideaway lit up the course with a stellar 9-under par 63 to clip Kirby Pert of Callaway Golf by two. Following the round Ponchot stated “It was just one of those days where the bounces all went my way. Every shot I hit just seemed to end up close to the hole.” Seven other players managed to finish their rounds in red figures to find their way into the money. In the Pro-Am portion of the event the team of PGA Professional Dave Licalsi, amateurs Fred Beiersdorf, Terry Kelly, and Vickie Kelly finished with an outstanding team total of 122 to take home the team title.
Thank you to Tamarisk Country Club, Callaway Golf, and the Boys and Girls Club of Coachella Valley for allowing us to have such a fantastic event. After all items were finalized the event was able to raise over $5000 for the Boys and Girls Club of Coachella Valley, another successful year for the Tamarisk Pro-Am.
