My wife and I are both playing in the World Am.
It is our first time.
We are driving in from Pittsburgh for the week.
Any ideas, we will obviously be going to 2 different courses each morning.
Is there a ride share system set up for participants.
We will be staying at the Anderson Ocean Club, which I believe is slightly North the board walk.July 18, 2016 at 9:53 am #35121Jason CORUMParticipant
There should be a ride share table when you register. You definitely need to find one. Some days you could be playing 20 to 30 miles apart.July 18, 2016 at 10:39 am #35123Ricky HermanParticipant
What age group will you be in. I will be in the 50-59 group.

Jim – welcome to the World Am. Happy to have you join us. You and your wife will be on two different courses each day however we will try to make it as easy on you as possible.
Firstly, we have a ride share program set up to assist. When you fill in your handicap forms we will ask you where you are staying in addition to ‘will you be able to offer a ride to a fellow participant in the same flight as you’. This option will give us an idea of fellow competitors that may be willing to carpool with you. We recommend you also check that box for yourselves to return the favor.
When you arrive at check-in Saturday/Sunday ask a staff member for help carpooling and we will contact those that have offered their help. It is not a guaranteed system (and this bulletin board will also help) but we are usually able to find someone to assist! Staying near the convention center will help your cause.
Lastly, there may be one or two days where you and your wife will be going in the same direction as each other and won’t require a ride every day.July 19, 2016 at 2:06 pm #35152david tianoParticipant
Also one other big help is that you are playing with the same 40-50 guys all four days and I am sure that you will have more than one volunteer to pick you up or drive you back to your hotel.
Good luck and enjoy.
