In our 5th year, the First Dakota National Bank Pro Am Jam is the most anticipated Sioux Falls golf tournament. Players from the Dakotas Tour are matched with novice golfers for a weekend of friendly competition. Pro Am Jam is also known for its big-name musical performances, with past guests like Gavin DeGraw, Matt Nathanson, Huey Lewis, and Big and Rich who have taken the stage during our Saturday night concerts.
Event proceeds benefit the First Tee of South Dakota—a non-profit improving the lives of youth by providing educational programs and learning environments that build character, instill life-enhancing values, and promote healthy choices through the game of golf. Money raised is used for scholarships, equipment, and educational materials for youth in our community.
This event only happens once a year. Join us at the Country Club of Sioux Falls August 11–14, 2016.
Pro Am Jam events are only open to members and guests of the Country Club of Sioux Falls and event sponsors.
