We welcome you to the 12th Annual Kore Pro-Am golf tournament at the beautiful Journey at Pechanga. We are grateful for your participation in this year’s tournament. Dura Coat Products is proud to be returning as the title sponsor for this coveted event.

Dura Coat Products is happy to announce that we have joined the Axalta family. Axalta Coating Systems is a 150-year-old global company that dates back to 1866. The strong commitment to technology that we share will enable us to continue to deliver innovative products and offer them to an ever-expanding customer base. Axalta’s customer focus and global footprint will help open more doors for our products and will enable us to build on the successful legacy of Dura Coat Products.

Dura Coat Products is honored to partner with Kore Asian Media and Pechanga Resort & Casino once again, to celebrate the achievements of Asian and Asian American LPGA players and the community at large. We hope you enjoy your day at this highly anticipated event.

Welcome! On behalf of Pechanga Resort & Casino, we sincerely thank you for attending our premier event, the 12th Annual Kore Pro-Am golf tournament. Rated one of the top public courses in California by GolfWeek magazine and a favorite Inland Southern California course by Southland Golf magazine, Journey at Pechanga is pleased to offer a breathtakingly beautiful course amongst the Temecula Valley Rolling Hills for this celebrated pro-am tournament. You and your guests will be playing alongside top Korean female golfers, and the opportunity may present itself to be able to play with them as well. We hope you enjoy Pechanga’s unmatched experience featuring the pairings party, the tournament and the awards dinner.

As the largest casino/resort in California, Pechanga Resort & Casino offers AAA Four Diamond luxury set amid the Temecula Valley Wine Country. Voted the No. 1 casino in the country by USA Today, Pechanga offers thousands of slots, table games, a private Poker room, and an ultra-modern Bingo hall on a casino floor larger than that of any Las Vegas resort/casino. The resort also features a full-service spa, 11+ award-winning dining options, nightly entertainment in the Pechanga Theater and Comedy Club, a nightclub atop the Eagle’s Nest overlooking the Temecula Valley, and exclusive lounges.

Pechanga is also in the process of enhancing the resort to even better service its guests. The Pechanga Tribe has undertaken a $285 million resort expansion to include an additional 568-room and suite hotel wing, a two-story standalone full-service spa, two new restaurants, a 4-acre resort pool complex, and nearly 70,000 additional square feet of indoor/outdoor meeting and event space with an eco-conscious rooftop garden.

Journey at Pechanga golf course sits on grounds once occupied by the native Luiseño people. The land, dotted by sacred oak trees and other cultural sensitivities, leads golfers up and down the hillside more than 300 feet, challenging both beginner and expert players. Unique course areas including the serene hole 5 with a lake and babbling creek splitting the fairway, to the nearly 300-foot drop from the hole 6 tee box, give players plenty of reasons to recount their course experiences in the Journey’s End clubhouse.

Pechanga Resort & Casino and its team members offer our deepest appreciation for all the players and golf fans participating in this year’s Kore Pro-Am. Pechanga Resort & Casino is the event’s sponsoring partner.

We wish a wonderful success for everyone involved in this prestigious tournament.

On behalf of Kore Asian Media and the LPGA Foundation, it is our pleasure to welcome you to our 12th annual Pro-Am.

Each year, it is our honor to present exceptional professional players at our event. We would like to thank all the pros for being here with us at Pechanga Resort & Casino, with a warm welcome to both returning golfers and first-timers.

As Asian and Asian American women continue to top leaderboards in the LPGA, we view Pro-Am, more than ever, as a bridge between our community and the professionals who make golf great. It has been our pleasure to see so many pros who joined us in past years — Inbee Park, Na Yeon Choi, Sun Young Yoo, Amy Yang and So Yeon Ryu among them — go on to LPGA success. Our hope is that this year’s players follow in their footsteps.

We are prouder than ever that this event, which started with Korean pros, has now grown into a truly Pan-Asian affair. This is a prime opportunity to support the hard work and dedication of some of the world’s best players, while also providing a rare chance to mingle with and witness up close their exemplary talent.

Pro-Am would not be possible without the generosity of our host sponsor, Journey at Pechanga, our presenting sponsor, Dr. Mike Hong of Dura Coat Products and our parent company London Trust Media.

Moving forward, we hope to continue the success of this event with your enthusiastic support. Thank you to all participants — see you on the green!
