Signups have been coming in at a brisk pace with today’s registration launch for the 2020 PlayGolfMyrtleBeach.com World Amateur Handicap Championship, with early entrants enjoying a $120 discount and eligibility to win gifts from an exclusive prize pool valued at more than $10,000.
Event organizers say entries are being completed at a rate similar to last year, where more than 3,200 participants ultimately took part in “the largest, most fun and most valuable golf tournament on the planet.” The 37th annual edition of the World Am is set for Aug. 31-Sept. 4, 2020, and will be contested on some 60 of the Myrtle Beach area’s best and most popular courses.
Each entry includes four rounds of golf, with the opportunity to compete for a fifth round of championship golf played on Friday, Sept. 4. It also includes a gift bag each golfer receives upon arrival, filled with quality golf products valued at more than $300.
In addition to great golf and gift bags, participants also partake each evening in “The World’s Largest 19th Hole” held at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, a nightly gathering of thousands for free food and drinks, live nightly entertainment, celebrities and special guests, and a golf expo showcasing some 70 exhibitors with innovative products and services.
Every World Am participant is eligible to win a gift from a total prize pool worth more than $100,000. Those who sign up before April 15, 2020 are also eligible to win from an additional $10,000 prize pool, while the current $120 discount off the player entry fee is available to all those who sign up before May 15.
