Pro-Am Teams for the Sanderson Farms Championship Sold Out
JACKSON, Miss. (September 12, 2017) — Tournament officials announced today that all 76 of the available Pro-Am teams have been sold for the 50th Sanderson Farms Championship, to be played October 23-29, 2017 at The Country Club of Jackson, MS.
“The Pro-Am events are unique to the PGA TOUR, differentiating it from other professional sports,” said executive director Steve Jent. “Having both the John Soules Foods and the Allen Explorations Pro-Ams sell out this early is an exciting show of backing from not only our community partners but the many Sanderson Farms vendors who participate.”
“We are delighted to have sold all available Pro-Am teams for 2017,” said Jeff Hubbard, president of Century Club Charities, the event’s host organization. “The loyalty our corporate community has shown our tournament through charitable giving is remarkable and embodies what a great market Jackson is for professional golf.”
The John Soules Foods Pro-Am will be played on Monday, October 23, 2017. The Allen Exploration Pro-Am will be played Wednesday, October 25, with 7:30 a.m. and noon tee times. Free admission tickets to the Wednesday Pro-Am are available online or at Will Call at the Northpark Mall parking lot.
