Think you’ve got what it takes? Gross division options at the World Amateur include Men’s Gross and Senior Men 50+ Gross. Compete in a PGA TOUR style event in which all participants play from the same championship tee boxes without a handicap. Challenge yourself to 72 holes of stroke play on four different courses along the Grand Strand.
What's at stake?
The top three finishers of each gross division will get a chance to play on Friday’s Championship round for the chance to be crowned the World Amateur Gross Champion.
