LAS VEGAS -- The Las Vegas Strip is known for bright lights, gambling and the biggest hotels in the world. This summer it will also be known as the home of the world’s sexiest golf tournament. On August 9th, teams of four will be paired with a caddy from the ParMate female caddy program to compete in a shotgun start scramble golf competition open to the public at nationally ranked Bali Hai Golf Club.
The Las Vegas ParAm is hosted by members of the ParMates female caddy program who are known for enhancing a round of golf by being fun and sexy, yet still providing all of the same services as a traditional forecaddie including assisting with club selection, replacing divots, keeping score and reading the greens. All ParMates currently work as professional models. When they’re not hosting the ParAm or working as models in TV or photo shoots they are available to caddy at Walters Golf Courses including Desert Pines Golf Club, Royal Links Golf Club and Bali Hai.
The 2014 ParAm has the most sponsors and most exposure ever in its 4th year in Las Vegas. Sponsors have chipped in thousands of dollars in prizes, freebies and cool swag. Big name sponsors include The Venetian Las Vegas®, the award-winning Canyon Ranch SpaClub®, Callaway®, Maverick Helicopters, Sailor Jerry, Pole Position Raceway, TAO Asian Bistro & Nightclub and TAO Beach.
"We are excited for this year's ParAm as it will be, by far, the biggest and most exciting ParAm to date," said Josh Hill, Corporate Vice President of Marketing for Walters Golf in Las Vegas. "This year we enhanced the tournament package by adding thousands of dollars in prizes and giveaways, as well as partnering the with Venetian Las Vegas to deliver a five-diamond experience."
Bali Hai Golf Club plays 7,002 yards from the tips with a par at 71. The course has a technical rating of 73 and a 130 slope. Bali Hai Golf Club’s location makes it one of the most prestigious courses to play in Las Vegas. It is the only course in Las Vegas with an entrance on Las Vegas Boulevard and is just minutes from most major hotel properties. It was recently awarded the “Best Golf Course in Las Vegas” by the Southern Nevada Hotel Concierge Association for the 6th consecutive year.
The tournament begins with a live ParMate auction prior to that many tournament participants will be arriving via a complimentary limo bus shuttle from the Venetian and Palazzo, this year’s hotel sponsors.
