Win a trip to the 2012 World Amateur Handicap Championship
By mustang6560 on 6/4/12
The sweepstakes is officially over. We'll announce the winner soon.

The 2012 World Amateur Handicap Championship returns to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina August 27-31, 2012 and your friends at oobgolf want to help send you there.
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.
For the last several years, we've partnered with the World Am to run a sweepstakes giving one oober the chance to attend the week-long event in the golf Mecca of the world (ncramsey83 won the sweepstakes last year). And 2012 is no different. We've worked out the details and I'm happy to announce the sweepstakes below.


The grand prize includes the following:
  • Four (4) rounds of tournament golf

  • Four (4) nights of food, open bar and entertainment for you and one (1) guest

  • Five (5) nights of accommodations (Sunday-Thursday)

  • Bagel, donuts & coffee at golf course each morning

  • Goodie bag
In addition to the aforementioned guaranteed prizes, based on your performance at the World Am, you also have the opportunity to:
  • Win flight, contest and individual prizes

  • Advance to a fifth round playoff to be crowned World Champion
The value of the prize is well over $1,500, which is fantastic! The winner of the giveaway will be responsible for airfare to and from Myrtle Beach and a rental car for the week. But, I will be in attendance for the World Am and I am willing to split the cost/cover the cost of the rental car with the winner (depending on the winner's handicap).

While there can only be one grand prize winner, I do have something for the rest of you oobers. From now until June 21, register and use the promo code "oobgolf12" to receive $50 off of your registration fee ($425). The sweepstakes ends Sunday, July 1, 2012 at 11:59pm and the winner will be selected by the World Am the following Monday and we'll announce the winner as soon as s/he accepts the prize.


* While picking from one oober- this sweepstakes is actually being run by the World Am, which means the fine print is on them, but it's fair to guess because of sweepstakes law this is US Only and that the winner will be responsibly for the tax burden of the prize.

I am so grateful to oobgolf and World Am for one amazing week last year at the World Am Championship. I knew the golf would be tons of fun, but spending the week with Nate and Andrew and fellow oobers like Chris (birdieX) was what made the week unforgettable (especially the USAVE situation)! Although I fell apart on the final round and finished outside of the top 15 in my flight (my personal goal), I still had a blast and really enjoyed all the groups that I was paired with. This is truly a remarkable giveaway and whoever wins should feel very fortunate for the opportunity. I almost feel guilty entering again this year, but like many of you, this is likely the only way to convince my wife that this is worthy use of vacation time and money!! If the winner of this contest has any questions regarding the tourney please contact me and I'd be glad to give any advice I can. Good luck to you all!!!

I've start a formal list of the oobers who ARE attending and the oobers who are CONSIDERING attending the World Am so we can get together at least one night for putt putt or something. Here is a link to the list:
