2008 amateurgolf.com Pinehurst Invitational accepting entries

CARLSBAD, Calif. (Aug. 13, 2008)--amateurgolf.com, the only website devoted completely to the amateur game, is proud to announce the latest in our Tournament Series "travel events" which include stops at Bandon Dunes and Kiawah Island. The inaugural Pinehurst Invitational is a three day, two person best-ball event that will be held November 1-4 at Pinehurst Resort and Country Club and is open to men and women golfers. Scratch, Net, and Senior Divisions will consist of two person teams either registering together or individually (with amateurgolf.com pairing them with another player).

Prices start at $1145.00 per person and include three days of golf, including one round at historic No. 2, three nights lodging, daily breakfasts, a welcome reception and tournament dinner. Tee gifts and tournament prizes will be provided by Bridgestone Golf, Lamkin Grips, UST Golf Shafts and Cutter & Buck Apparel.

"With our coverage of the 2008 US Amateur bringing us to Pinehurst for a preview and event story, we realized what a historic and grand resort it is, and decided to start our own event there," said amateurgolf.com Founder Pete Wlodkowski. "Everything about the resort, and town, is pure golf, and we're looking forward to introducing some first time visitors to the charm of Pinehurst."

For west coast golfers, the amateurgolf.com tournament series is still going strong this summer, with stops in Northern and Southern California on the horizon and still accepting entries.

The second annual Carlsbad Coastal Championship will be held Oct. 4-5 at one of the most talked-about new courses in Southern California, The Crossings at Carlsbad. And on December 6-7 our most festive (and well attended) event of the year, The Christmas Classic, is being played at Del Monte Golf Course in Monterey and Pacific Grove Golf Links, often called "The Poor Man's Pebble Beach."

Join us in historic Pinehurst, North Carolina as we kick off an event we plan on becoming a regular part of our Tournament Series' "travel events" that now includes annual stops in Bandon Dunes, Oregon and Kiawah Island, South Carolina. We'll play the famed No. 2 course in the final round, and also No's. 4 and 6. We never promise perfect weather (it's golf, after all) but the Pinehurst area usually enjoys a warm, dry climate thanks to the sheltering Appalachian Mountains which stave the cold Midwestern winds. And temperatures should range in the 60's and 70's on the high side with lows in the 40's and 50's. We are playing both courses being used for the 2008 US Amateur, being played August 23-26.

Please see the registration page for package prices and details. All packages include:

(3) Nights lodging in either Carolina or Manor Inn (nights of Nov 1-2-3 with dept. on Nov. 4)
(3) Rounds of Golf including one round on No. 2
(3) Breakfasts
(1) Welcome Reception
(1) Tournament Dinner

* plus: Tournament trophies and a nice tee gift from Cutter & Buck, prizes from Bridgestone Golf, Lamkin Grips, and UST Golf Shafts
* optional: Skins and Overall prize pool to be collected at the welcome reception

We'll play three days of two man best-ball (women's division if enough players) and break the field up into scratch, net, and by-age flights (e.g. Masters or Senior) based on number of players who register. We always have enough scratch players in these events, and expect a first year field of 36-48 players.

You may register as a team (indicate your partner's name in the "comments" field when registering) or as an individual (if registering as an individual, please select one of the single occupancy lodging options only). Individuals will be paired by amateurgolf.com. Don't hesitate to register in this manner...you might make a lifelong friend!

Contact Pete Wlodkowski at 760-929-9297 or go to the contact page on the website for email and mailing info. If you don't wish to register online, feel free to call to have your registration done over the phone.
