Play for a world golf title in Las Vegas next February
Anything that’s a world championship has to be a big deal, right? Putting it in Las Vegas simply gives it more glam.
That’s the case with the second annual Las Vegas World Amateur Championship, to be conducted Feb. 10-14. Early registration is already open.
The event features six competitive age-based divisions. Golfers are flighted by handicaps within each division, and each flight winner of each advances to the championship round to determine the world champion. The tournament is scheduled to be played on approximately 10 different courses in the Las Vegas area, and each flight plays a different course each day.
Last year’s event was won by 61-year-old Ken Kranz, 6.3 handicap from Cheyenne, Wyo. Kranz fired net founds of 77-73-71-66–287 to win.
“This is a great opportunity to get some golf in and get out of the winter cold and come to Vegas,” said Kranz. “Every course had its own personality and own attraction. Each course was fun.”
Early course commitments for the 2014 tourney include Desert Pines Golf Club, Royal Links Golf Club and Bali Hai Golf Club, where the opening reception will be held at the club’s Cili Restaurant, located right on the Las Vegas Strip. The $750 entry fee includes three rounds of golf (cart included) on three different golf courses, matched handicap flights in each division, welcome reception party ticket, awards dinner party ticket, complimentary hors d?oeuvres and beer at the daily Score Central gatherings, tee gift package at registration, golf expo, and daily prize drawings. Guests may also purchase a ticket for the welcome reception or awards dinner for an additional fee.
