Win Free Entry And Lodging For 2009 World Am
By Kickntrue on 3/23/09

The 2009 World Amateur Handicap Championship will take place from August 31st- September 4th in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. oobgolf has a free entry and lodging to give away. Since entry costs $550 (holy crap, that's cheap) and you'll receive lodging for each day you're down there (4 nights), that makes this prize worth over $1000!

So how do you win? It's pretty simple actually. Write an "essay" of 100 words or less on what you think golf will look like in 10 years.**

We realize that is pretty wide open- and that's very much on purpose. You can tell us about equipment, courses, fees, golf carts, pace of play, etc. We really don't care- we just want to see your unique ideas.

Email me your essay today to enter. (

Dave Macpherson, the Tournament Director of the World Am will help be selecting the randomly picked essay which will be announced on April 15th. Seriously, check out the details and I don't think you'll want to miss this event. Kevin and I will be there representing oobgolf and we want very much to meet as many people as possible.

Here are some details of the event (included in your entry):
* Four rounds of net stroke tournament play on a different course each day.

* Opportunity of competing in a fifth round championship playoff on Friday, September 4, 2009 (for flight winners and ties). The World Am is Held on Championship Myrtle Beach Golf Courses

* Coffee, bagels & donuts at the golf course each day.

* Top players in each flight receive a gift certificate to PGA TOUR Superstore and receive a trophy. Daily low net, long drive, closest-to-the-pin, closest-to-the-line, and hole-in-ones also share the spoils of victory. Over $130,000 in gift certificates will be awarded.

* A gift bag upon arrival with tournament logo'd golf merchandise.

* Four evenings of food, drink, golf expo, games, and live entertainment at the World's Largest 19th Hole for you and a guest. [OPEN BAR]

Kevin and I look forward to seeing as many oobers in Myrtle Beach as possible. As an added incentive, the World Am Championship is going to work with us to count oobgolf handicaps as official so you don't need to worry about going out to get an "official" handicap card. Just keep entering your stats and we'll see you there! Feel free to ask any questions you may have. We'll see you there!

Kickntrue says:
svj- grammar and spelling are NOT in fact important. you've been visit'n for awhile now. you should know we cannt spell.
theredmission says:
"To enter with no essay required mail your name, address, phone number and email address to"...Wait so, legally it doesn't matter what the essay says because you legally have to just pick one at random?
Kickntrue says:
That is mostly correct. The essay is for fun and provides a method of enty. The point is that this is a prize/giveaway, not an essay contest. If you choose to have your entry method be mail, that is fine too.
