We are very excited to again partner with The BMW Charity Pro-Am Presented by SYNNEX Corporation. We will be hosting a clinic for our participants and families on Tuesday at Thornblade Club (click here to register your child), participants over 12 years of age will be able to register to act as standard bearers, and many more exciting activities to be highlighted on the page.

Please support this amazing event in the Upstate by purchasing tickets, participating in Birdies for Charities or volunteering.

  • Earn money for charity!  Volunteers have the opportunity to earn $20 per day for one of the tournament’s charities. Make sure you designate which charity during the registration process.
  • You don’t need to know anything about golf to volunteer!  We have plenty of volunteer opportunities available for those not familiar with the game.

Birdies for charity

The Birdies for Charity Fund was established to support the continuing efforts of the BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation, a 501 (C)(3) not-for-profit organization, to provide bonus dollars to participating charities. To qualify, charities must be publicly supported and recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501 (C)(3) organization. All charitable contributions must come from a designated donor, and must not be part of a capital campaign. The Birdies for Charity program is intended to support charitable organizations, services, operations and programs.


Simply make a one-time flat donation OR a pledge one cent or more per birdie. If you make a pledge per birdie, you’ll be mailed a notice of your pledge amount due after the tournament.

To enter the contest, guess the number of birdies that will actually be made by the Tour Pros during the tournament Thursday – Sunday. A grand prize will be given who guesses the correct number. In case of ties, winners will be randomly selected.


When you chip in to help area charities, you can win some great prizes. But your designated charity will receive every single penny of the donations from this program. The Grand Prize is an outing for 4 people at the BMW Performance Center and a one-month lease of the BMW X5.


  • ›  Only one (1) grand prize awarded. Ties and other prizes determined by random drawing.
  • ›  All guesses must be on an official pledge card and received at the tournament office by June 5, 2019
  • ›  Rules are available at and
  • ›  No pledge or purchase required. Need not be present to win.
