Billy, I will hold you to it. Look forward to meeting you. I am definitely looking forward to 9 or 10 days of golf.
Billy, when you say “flights played straight up”…are you saying flights assigned and then everyone in that flight plays to their gross score? If so, that is incorrect. You play to your assigned handicap within the age bracket/flight you are in. The tournament, except for the gross division(s), are all NET.
Ahh come on Bob. Thought you told me you were independently wealthy. 🙂
Where does the idea come from that the $600 entry fee wholly goes towards green fees?
Thanks Maurice, great to hear that.
So, all of the other courses you played with exception of Beechwood were in great shape?
Worked fine for me.
Good luck Harry. I have been hoping my arthritic hands would get better for 2 years now but no such luck. Hope you find something that works for you.
Update – I called Doubletree in MB and got it handled. They booked me arriving 25th. I forgot that I had to do same first year I stayed there. They really are easy to deal with once you get to the right person.
According to the WA website here, the dates start August 25th, which is perfect as that is when I arrive.
But trying to book, it will only let me use Saturday August 27th.
Billy Burwick, welcome to the World Am. Let yourself have a good time and you will. And, if you do, you will be back.
Bruce Friend, good post. Hope to see you and Billy at the Convention Center.
David Baker…well said. After my first year here, 1988, I started telling others about the WA. They have come and they have told others. I think all in all, maybe 35+ people are coming this year as a result of my telling them or others about the WA. It is great for those guys/gals to come. But, along the way, I have met people I only get to see here every year and I look forward to seeing them. Most of us don’t even play in the same age bracket or flights but we still look for each other in the Convention Center every year. I have met many of the past and current WA staff and they are great people in an almost thankless job. Yes, some of the course conditions are truly beyond terrible. But you nailed it…the true value is the friendships. Take care and see you in August most probably at the CC.
@Charles Mines – best I can tell…yes it is official. Here is the link posted by Scott from WA Committee
Glenn Foster…the tee time/shotgun ship has sailed. The World Am Committee has already made the right decision…shotgun.
