It's almost time for the 2012 World Am!
By mustang6560 on 8/22/12
The 2012 Golf.com World Amateur Handicap Championship starts next week, so it's time for me to start making you jealous that you aren't going.

On Monday, the World Am released the course assignments for everyone who is playing next week in Myrtle Beach. Last year, I played Indian Wells Golf Club, Heritage Golf Club, Legends Golf Club, and Heather Glen Golf. I was hoping I would get to play all new golf courses in the Grand Strand, and sure enough, I am.

This year, I'll be playing Hackler Course at Coastal, Caledonia Golf & Fish Club, Rivers Edge Golf Club, and Myrtlewood Golf Club (Palmetto Course). If anyone has played any of the courses I'm playing next week, feel free to share as much "local knowledge" as possible (I'll be the sponge and you can be the water).

oobers GolfSmith7, jfurr, and madmx99 (the winner of the World Am Giveaway) are also planning to attend the World Am. If my memory serves me correctly, jfurr has been the the World Am several times, but GolfSmith7 and madmx99 are newbies. I look forward to meeting each of them and I'm excited to take you along for the ride again! If you're attending the World Am and you're not listed above, post a comment below letting me know you're planning to attend so you can get together with us for dinner and putt putt one night.

River's Edge is one of my favorites when I'm down that way. I played it last week...greens were rolling a bit slow because they let them grow so they wouldn't burn up. I suggest getting there early enough for some practice green time. It's a course where course management and strategy comes into play...yes you can grip it and rip it, but many times it's better to throttle it back to keep it in play...there's a lot of risk and reward (or risk and penalty). Course is really scenic if you can enjoy it while concentrating on the tourney. Check out the yardage book at www.river18.com/golf-holes/yardagebook.html. Good Luck!

Golfsmith7, we're in the same flight!!! Have to make sure we hook up and can share some stories. Makes it twice the odds an OOBer wins our flight. Look forward to meeting you.

@mustang6560 - Looks like we might be in the same flight as I have those same courses on the same days. I am in Flight 7. Flight 7 and flight 8 are both playing those courses.

@madmx99 I wonder how they will pair us up. The courses we'll play look fantastic. I too look forward to meeting you and every other oober. Praying Isaac goes away and not ruin the fun.

@GolfSmith7 In previous years, the first three days you were randomly paired with others in your flight. Remember that there will be two flights at the course you play each day. On Thursday they have been making groups based on what place you are in your flight.

@madmx99 I have color digital score card of each hole of all for courses. If you want them let me know and I either can email them to you. (Not sure if the file would send since it might be large) or I can bring a usb drive and you can print them sunday night.

madmx99 says:
@golfsmith7, sent you an email with my address for home. Give that a shot first. They look great!!! Few miles to drive for each one of them.
