Golf.com World Amateur Handicap Championship participants will test their games on the best golf courses Myrtle Beach has to offer.
Sixty-three Grand Strand layouts will be hosting the World Am, including 12 that have been ranked among the nation’s top 100 public courses by either Golf Magazine or Golf Digest.
Among the high profile courses hosting this year are Caledonia, Grande Dunes Resort Course, Heritage Club, King’s North, Tidewater, Tiger’s Eye and Leopard’s Chase at Ocean Ridge Plantation, Rivers Edge and TPC Myrtle Beach.
Forty-five of the 63 host courses have earned at least 4 stars in Golf Digest’s prestigious Best Places to Play guide, bringing tremendous quality and depth to the tournament’s course lineup.
“The quality and quantity of Myrtle Beach’s golf offerings are what allows the area to host 3,500 players for a 72-hole tournament,” said Jeff Monday, the World Am’s tournament director. “The event has always enjoyed great support from area golf courses, and this year’s lineup is the best yet.”
Barefoot Resort’s Dye Club will be hosting the World Championship Playoff for the first time. The Dye Club has been home to the Hootie & the Blowfish Monday After the Masters Celebrity Pro-Am the last 11 years and is one of the area’s finest facilities.
