Get in the Game.

Joining you in Myrtle Beach will be more than 3,300 golfers from all 50 states and more than 25 foreign countries who share your love of the game and your drive to become world champion.

The largest and most fun-filled amateur golf tournament on the planet was first played back in 1984 with 684 participants. Numerous celebrities have been part of the fun over the years, including Major League Baseball stars Roger Clemens and Tony Womack, LPGA champion Annika Sorenstam, NASCAR great Jeff Gordon, and CBS Sports and Golf Channel Commentator, David Feherty.

The granddaddy of all such golf events features 72-holes of intense stroke play competition, a thrilling 18-hole championship playoff, lots of gifts and prizes, plus nightly parties and entertainment. And it remains one of the best values in competitive golf. But at the heart of its enduring success is the camaraderie among participants. This is where lifelong friendships are forged.

Anyone can play. Anyone can win.

The World Am is open to all golfers - 17 years old and above – with a certified USGA handicap or foreign equivalent. It features six competitive divisions, ranging from men 49 and under to the super seniors (70+), Women's division and Men's Gross Division. Within the divisions, golfers are flighted by closely grouped handicaps. The event features around 70 flights and the winner of each advances to the Flight Winner’s Playoff, an 18-hole shootout that determines the World Champion. 

The tournament is played on approximately 60 different Myrtle Beach area courses, including several Top 100 public layouts, and each flight plays a different course each day. Take a look at our PAST CHAMPIONS list to see who has taken home the hardware!
