All About the 'World Am'
A unique golf tournament experience you cannot get anywhere else. With around 3,200 players competing each year, there is a different feeling when standing on the first tee than you get when playing in your weekly league or local Am Tour event.
The World’s largest golf tournament is also the most inclusive. From scratch golfers to 36 handicaps, The event features all playing abilities and is one of the biggest women’s tournaments with 400 participants!
Flighted by Gender, Age and Handicap
Handicap ranges within the flights are very small. In addition to the net flights, we offer gross divisions for women, men, senior men, and mid senior men who prefer medal play. Our motto is, we can make your experience as much or as little like a PGA TOUR event as you want!
Anyone can play. Anyone can win.
The most inclusive event on the planet, the World Am is truly open to any player with a valid WHS (World Handicap System) handicap index or international equivalent. Not only do we utilize the handicap of each player to flight the event, but the competition is conducted as a net, stroke play event to offer a level playing field for each player. For those concerned about the true equity of handicap golf tournaments, rest assured the organizers spend countless hours scrutinizing handicaps prior to and during the event
A lot to win and a lot of winners
Paying out the top 5 in each flight means 300+ winners! With a great prize sponsor in the PGA TOUR Superstore, we’re dishing out great gift card prizes to those top finishers in each of the 64 flights! Even if you didn’t play your best, there are daily contest prizes each day. Not to mention we give away $30,000 in random drawing prizes throughout the year! We even give away prizes to entire flights randomly!
