The National Car Rental Pro-Am Series is a series of 81 pro-ams held across the country and conducted by the 41 Sections of the PGA of America. “As we looked at what events in our calendar we wanted to make an NCR Pro-Am Series it was obvious to us we needed to make sure to include our Pro-Lady” stated Steve McMillen, KPGA Executive Director. “Based on the feedback from the players and pros today, it sounds like we hit a home run and can’t thank National Car Rental enough for their support.” The other National Car Rental Pro-Am Series held in Kentucky was earlier this year and hosted at Big Spring Country Club.
