I've played in the World Amateur Handicap Championship for the past two years and remain excited to compete again this year, Aug. 25-29.

What I've been most impressed with during my World Amateur experiences, is the event's ability to slot each flight at a top-notch course throughout the four key days of the tournament.

Last year, for instance, I played TPC Myrtle Beach and Carolina National, a top-notch Fred Couples signature just over the border in North Carolina.

With the event's recent news that another stellar golf course lineup awaits the roughly 3,000 competitors this year, it's evident that tournament golf at fantastic courses is in my future yet again!

“The diversity of our golf course offerings here in Myrtle Beach are a primary reason for the event’s success,” Jeff Monday, the World Am’s tournament director, said. “We are fortunate to have some of the best golf courses not only in Myrtle Beach but all of America, and it helps us deliver a great golf experience for all 3,000+ players.”

With the championship round slated at the Dye Club, more than 60 standout courses along Myrtle Beach's Grand Strand are scheduled to host golfers during the event this year.
