The 2021 BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation opened ticket sales on March 17.
This year’s tournament will return to Thornblade Club and The Cliffs Valley, June 10-13, and will celebrate its 20th year of play after the cancellation of last year’s anniversary tournament due to COVID-19.
While the charity golf tournament is returning, spectators will be allowed in a limited capacity at both courses, and the event will have testing, screening and cleaning protocols in place, as well as monitored social distancing and mask requirements on the property.
“While this year’s tournament will look different, we are ready to bring professional golf back to the Upstate with a limited number of spectators,” said Bob Nitto, president of South Carolina Charities Inc., the nonprofit that manages the BMW Charity Pro-Am “We will continuously work with our local officials and partners at the PGA Tour to ensure we are taking appropriate precautions to create a safe and responsibly executed event. Our beneficiary groups have been on the front lines of this pandemic, and we look forward to make a significant impact on each of the organizations that benefit from our tournament.”
Due to the new capacity restrictions and COVID-19 protocols, all tickets must be purchased prior to attending this year’s tournament. Tickets will be available for digital purchase with contactless delivery.

The tournament will also welcome back a military and first responders weekend June 10-13 in support of the Upstate Warrior Solution and the Palmetto State Chapter of Folds of Honor.
The funds raised from tournament programs, including ticket sales, volunteer hours and Birdies for Charity, which allows individual donors to make a one-time flat donation or pledge one cent or more per birdie during the tournament, have allowed the BMW Charity Pro-Am to donate over $13.7 million in charitable funds to the tournament’s featured beneficiaries and ancillary charities in the Upstate community.
