The entry fee also includes a gift bag ($300 value) and nightly access to "The World's Largest 19th Hole" at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. The vast festival of golf features equipment demos, entertainment, open bars, concerts, prize drawings and food from superb area restaurants. Golf Channel analysts Charlie Rymer and Brandel Chamblee are among the celebrities scheduled to appear.

"Few destinations could hold an event of this magnitude as comfortably as we can here in Myrtle Beach," says Jeff Monday, tournament director. "With so many outstanding courses to choose from as well as accommodation options for all budgets, this tournament showcases why we're the golf capital of the U.S."

World Am participants are flighted based on gender, age and handicap index. The tournament is comprised of approximately 70 flights and all flight winners advance to the 18-hole world championship playoff where a champion is crowned. The event's inclusiveness is apparent in its past champions as winners with handicaps as low as three and as high as 34 have won. Four women have hoisted the championship trophy.
