I have not had a moment til now, but just
wanted to write and thank you for all your hard work and
organisation last week at Pinehurst. My team all had a wonderful
time, although I am sure winning helps, and I really hope
I can get to play in one of your events again in the future.
Rod Bastard PGA, Marbella Club, Spain
Thanks for a fantastic trip to Pinehurst;
you guys, as always were totally professional & the
courses were genuinely stunning. Simon Ingram, Sotogrande,

holiday and the whole team had a great time. Already planning
ahead for next year ... Simon Lowry, Ealing, London
Just a short e-mail to thank you both for
another great week (Sawgrass) .... as always impeccably
run with enthusiasm and passion to insure everyone has a
great time. I am more than hopeful for a return next year
and look forward to meeting you again soon. Richard Hall,
Sawgrass was a fantastic week, and as ever
run superbly well. Ben St John PGA, Woodcote Park
Thank you for another super week, and for
putting me with a top team. They were great company and
I got on really well with them. Such good fun. Zane Scotland
EuroPro Tour, Princes Golf Club
A big thank you as always for organising
such a terrific event (Sawgrass). My team had a great time
and could not get over how organised and polished the event
was run by you both. They came away feeling that they not
only had a memorable time but also what great value for
money the trip was, (they are not normally easily pleased)!!
They are already planning the next one! Richard Wheeler,
Braintree Golf Club
fantastic series of tournament golf holidays staged at world
class venues, such as Sawgrass and Scottsdale, where you
can actually follow in the footsteps of golf's greatest
players and play the courses in tournament condition. Sometimes
the events are held immediately after the PGA Tour with
the grandstands still in place.
All the events are professionally organised by John &
Alison Hooper, and I really enjoy the team competition
format and the camaraderie that is generated, but most of
all the golf courses are simply brilliant."
Matt le Tissier, Southampton
golf courses mixed with detailed organisation and played in
a competitive yet friendly environment. It doesn't get much
better than a golfing event with The Pro -Am Tour, playing
courses you have previously only dreamt of. Book me in next
year, it's the highlight of my golfing year." John
my twenty three years of playing top Pro-Am events I have
been fortunate to have played some amazing courses but never
have I experienced anything like this. One breathtaking venue
after another - simply stunning."
Chris Evans PGA - Tandridge Golf
"Just a quick e-mail to thank you both
for an outstanding trip (Sawgrass Classic Pro-Am).... the
organisation, hotel, courses, weather, hosts, minivan, everything
was excellent. We are already talking about a return next
year as we enjoyed it so much! All the best for the rest of
the season." Richard Hall, Secretary / Manager, Romford
to Alison and John, the most amazing week! In my mind there
is no better place on this planet (The Pro-Am Tour at Pebble
Beach, May 2011) and my boys agreed. Hopefully we will
get one in the calendar for next year! Thanks again for another
Craig Trower PGA - The Wisley Golf Club
"We recently attended our fifth pro-am
with The American Golf Holiday Pro-Am Tour and it was the
best yet. It really shows how good they are when people come
back year after year. You haven't played golf until you have
played in one of these events." Kevin Stanton, Kent,
"The Pro-Am Tour at Pebble Beach was truly a memorable experience
from start to finish. The Golf Courses were outstanding, the
hotel was fabulous and the organisation of the whole event
was first class - it really was a very special few days."
Richard Hall, Head Golf Professional - Turnberry
best team golf experience. Fantastic destination (Scottsdale)
for sun, fun & great golf."
Mathew Wilson PGA, Broadstone Golf Club
get world class golf courses, organisation so thorough you
don't notice it, and exciting competition allied to superb
camaraderie. It is an unrivalled product." Malcolm Wager,
just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for a great
week. As I said in my winner's speech, it was well run, great
course selection, awesome place to play golf and I congratulate
you on running a very successful pro-am. It was the best overseas
pro-am I've ever been in and I look forward to another one
Craig Lee, European Challenge Tour
"Thanks for hosting another great event in Scottsdale.
Despite our poor golf we all had a blast. The consistently
high standard of product that you offer is second to none.
We look forward partaking again in the not too distant future."
Paul Hetherington PGA - Great Hadham Golf Club
team and I had a great time in Las Vegas, thanks for hosting
a great event."
Adrien Mork - PGA of France
have played in many overseas Pro-Ams in the past, but the
The American Golf Holiday's Pro-Am Tour events are by far
the best events I have every played in. They are the best
organised, so much so that it is difficult to see how they
could be improved. I look forward to playing several more
next year." Gary Marks PGA - Worlebury Golf Club,
best holiday golf experience ever. Great golf and Scottsdale
is a fabulous place. A must play world experience." Mark
"The Las Vegas Classic Pro-Am has got to be the best in world
golf. Beautiful golf courses and amazing hotels in the city
where the fun never stops. John & Alison are fantastic hosts
who attend to every detail. Thank you for a wonderful week."
David Kennedy, County Sligo, Ireland
I would like to say on behalf of myself and my team a huge
thank you for once again running a fantastic event in Dubai.
The organisation of the event the hotels and the golf course
were perfect, we are already counting the days down to our
next trip with you." Garry Parker PGA, Knebworth Golf
Pro-Am Tour gives amateur golfers the chance to play with
professionals on some of golf's finest tournament venues such
as Pebble Beach & TPC Sawgrass. Golf experiences do not
get any better than this."
Dave Gordon, Chandlers Ford, Hampshire
"Absolutely superb! Great golf courses,
great company, and run like clockwork."
David Hodgson - Harrogate, North Yorkshire
thanks to you and all your team for another great Pro-Am.
Perfect weather, great courses and super company." Ken
& Kate Simpson, Oxfordshire
"I was thrilled to win The Pro-Am Tour
at Whistling Straits. The venue was world class with a fantastic
hotel and amazing golf courses, and like all the Pro-Am Tour
events it was all organised to the highest possible standard
by John & Alison Hooper." Rob McGuirk PGA - Director
of Golf , Princes Golf Club, Kent
wanted to say a big thank you for all your hard work over
the last few weeks at Sawgrass & Whistling Straits. We
all had a fantastic time and I have to say that the pro-ams
just seem to get better and better. They are without doubt
the best organised events I have ever played in, and I am
certainly encouraging everyone I speak to, to get involved.
Once they have played in one they will be hooked, that's for
Andy Herridge PGA - Director of Golf, Leeds Golf Centre
"The Pro-Am Tour at Pebble Beach by The
American Golf Holiday was without doubt the best 5 days golf
we have all experienced. The golf courses are stunning with
Chris Mather, Dumfries, Scotland
"Great attention to detail. Superb organisation.
Fantastic selection of courses. Relaxed and professional atmosphere."
Diego Wauters - Oxshott, Surrey
would like to thank you and Alison for putting on a great
week for all the competitors, truly amazing place with the
finest courses and coastline anywhere in the world. Pebble
Beach is without doubt the most incredible golfing destination
I have visited anywhere in the world. The American Golf Holiday
organised everything perfectly which left myself and my team
with nothing to do but enjoy ourselves, and at Pebble Beach
I can't imagine you can do much else, happy golfing."
Scott Henderson, Kings Links, Aberdeen
"Such well run events - an awesome opportunity
to play world class golf courses under tournament condition."
Julian Reason PGA - Sweetwoods Park
a non-PGA professional this is the first time I have been
able to play in a Pro-Am Tour event, and to play TPC Sawgrass
the week after The PLAYERS Championship is simply amazing.
The Sawgrass Classic Pro-Am is without doubt one of the best
organised events I have ever played in."
James Heath - European Challenge Tour player, Surrey
"Anyone who plays golf should experience
one of your trips. They tick every box and ooze excellence.
Thank you!" Jason Kelly PGA - Surrey
Pro-Am Tour is a fantastic opportunity for professional golfers
to play some of the best courses here in Arizona. The organisation
by Alison & John is second to none everything is to perfection,
from restaurants, golf, entertainment and more. A great way
to spend a week or two with your club members or sponsors.
Highly recommended." Chris Doak PGA - European Tour
thanks for your and Alison's organisation and attention to
detail during our recent week at Pebble Beach. I thoroughly
enjoyed every aspect of it and have many happy memories of
the trip and hope to come again on one of the other locations."
Raj Parmar, Oxford
fabulous week played over 6 tremendous golf courses. Once
again a week that never fails to impress." Gavin Clark,
best Pro-Ams I've ever played in - nothing else comes close.
In fact I know many professionals consider The Pro-Am Tour
to be the finest tournament holidays available, combining
a world-class golf holiday experience for the amateurs, and
a professionally run tournament with good prize money for
the PGA professionals."My favourite events on The Pro-Am
Tour are the Scottsdale Classic & The British Columbia
Classic, but my favourite course is Spyglass Hill played in
the Pebble Beach event. But all the courses are superb, and
they are always in great condition because Pro-Am Tour events
are always held at the best times of the year."
Darren Prosser PGA - Halfpenny Golf Club
"The American Golf Holiday's Pro-Ams are
by far the best tournament golf holidays we have ever played
in. The combination of world-class golfing venues, the fun
and camaraderie with the other competitors, and John and Alison's
superb hospitality make them a regular fixture on our winter
golfing calendar." Mr & Mrs R Saunders, Sutton
Coldfield, West Midlands
Pro-Am Tour offers the best golf courses in peak tournament
condition, and the prize money is excellent. Overall the quality
of the destinations, golf courses and practice facilities
is second to none. I try and play in at least 3 or 4 every
year." Simon Lilly PGA - Wellingborough Golf Club
"The California Classic Pro-Am is my favourite
event because of the world class courses and the fantastic
camaraderie between the Pro-Am teams which makes for a superb
event. But if I had to choose a single favourite course it
would have to be TPC Sawgrass which I played during the Sawgrass
Classic Pro-Am back in May. Simply because to play tournament
golf, in tournament conditions, on that course straight after
The PLAYERS Championship has to be one of golf's greatest
Matt McGuire PGA - Stoneleigh Deer Park
"Great stuff" Olli Riikkala -
"Best golf experience ever! Highest standard
of organisation. Excellent competition and quality golf courses."
Peter Nikitaidis - New Canaan, Connecticut
Alfonso Gonzalez Macho - Harrogate
Arizona Classic Pro-Am is definitely my favourite event because
the courses are all exceptional. In fact we play two PGA Tour
venues, TPC Scottsdale and Grayhawk, which are both superb,
but my favourites are We-Ko-Pa which is visually stunning,
and the exclusive Desert Highlands which is millionaire's
golf at its most spectacular."
James Ablett PGA - Lee-on-the-Solent Golf Club
"Very good - excellent" Emilio
Rivera - Knaresborough
"All the events are great but my favourites
are Las Vegas, which combines world class golf with world
class entertainment, and Hilton Head, which also provides
fantastic golf, but by contrast the coastal setting is just
really relaxing and idyllic. Also in early April Harbour Town
Golf Links is presented in pristine tournament condition just
prior to the PGA Tour's Verizon Heritage Classic."
Peter Allan PGA - Ashton in Makerfield Golf Club
company's understanding and professionalism is second to none.
After four American Golf Holiday Pro-Ams we will continue
to support these great events." Stephen Gilhooley,
