Professional-Amateur Championship


The Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship Pro-Am is a highly competitive, stroke play, 36 hole event which is played over two days. The competitors are battling it out for their share of the €150,000 prize fund. Professional players will be competing for the coveted championship title, in addition to the team prize for winning the Pro-Am Partnership.

Playing format – 36 hole event. Each team consists of one professional and one amateur with the best nett medal score to count per hole. Maximum handicap for amateurs- 18, half allowance.

Wednesday 9th & Thursday 10th August 2017

The Pro-Am format is similar to that of the renowned and highly successful Dunhill Links competition which forms part of the European Tour schedule each year. Each professional golfer will team up with an amateur over the two days of the competition and the better ball score for each team will count towards a fantastic Pro-Am Team prize.

Participating in the Pro-Am is a once in a lifetime experience, during which amateur golfers can experience the highs and lows of participating in a professional golf event.
