Las Vegas World Amateur Golf Tournament

Love playing fun, competitive golf? Love Las Vegas?  Me, too!  Several large amateur events happen around the United States each year and now there’s a new kid on the block. I don’t know what took them so long; seems like a natural fit to me. Don’t golfing and gambling just go hand in hand? This year marks the inaugural event of the Las Vegas World Amateur, and I, for one, want to get out and play it!

Bears Best

When I spoke with the event director almost a month ago, they already had promising response, interest and registrations.  The first year of an event like this could be a relatively intimate group but with a location and courses like these, it seems destined to grow into something much bigger.  Why not get in on the ground floor and make it an annual pilgrimage -an excuse to play “winter golf” on a Vegas getaway?

It’s not too late to sign up and make your plans to go! The event is set for February 11-15, 2013. It’s open to all amateur players of all skill levels, so you can even bring your Valentine and make the most of it! Even if I can’t bring a valentine, I have a turbulent love affair with golf so that works for me.

Flighted by gender and handicap, the event has enlisted an incredible array of participating courses, which will be determined based on registration numbers and flights. The courses are:

The event will have all the trappings of an amateur tournament of this level – receptions, parties, awards dinner – only you can bet on some true Las Vegas flair thrown in. Despite the Vegas golden rule, I’m pretty sure you can take your trophy home if you win.

Check out the Las Vegas World Am website for all the details. See you there?

    Sounds like a fun event and a great time of year to get out to the desert. February is crazy busy for me at work so hard for me to get off work that time of year. I’m going to try to do the Mesquite Am again this year if finances work out.

    Well, let’s see…If I sold my clubs, my guns, and one of the dogs, I might be able to afford this deal. But as usual, envying The Golf Chick costs nothing, so looks like I’m in for another “Year of Living Vicariously”!
