MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -- Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday and Oxford Golf announce continuation of a marketing partnership formed in 2012 for this year's 30th annual Golf.com World Amateur Handicap Championship in Myrtle Beach, Aug. 26 - 30.

Oxford Golf will have signage at "The World's Largest 19th Hole" at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, and provide promotional items to participants and volunteers. The Golf Channel's Brandel Chamblee and Charlie Rymer are among the celebrities scheduled to appear at the nightly extravaganza

The prestigious tournament in the "Golf Capital of the U.S." is expected to draw 3,500 players from all 50 states and more than 25 foreign countries. Registration is available at www.worldamgolf.com.
