Win a trip to the 2012 Golf.com World Amateur Handicap Championship
By mustang6560 on 6/4/12
The sweepstakes is officially over. We'll announce the winner soon.
The 2012 Golf.com 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.
ENTER WORLD AM GIVEAWAY
The grand prize includes the following:
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.
ENTER WORLD AM GIVEAWAY
* 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 can't think of a better golf excuse to give my wife than, "I have to go; I won a free trip." Hope to see everyone in Myrtle!
Wow, what a great contest.
Bagel AND donuts? Wow. Sign me up. If Nate is paying, I would love to go.
I'm in.. sounds like a great time to me.
I've always wanted to do this trip...sent entry form & hope to win.
Im in, never played this event but always wanted to now is my chance.
I already signed up to go. If I win I'll trade it for something. Who is going this year, regardless if they win or not?
Hope to be there, have not made up my mind yet but think I will be.
I'm out this year... don't have enough time off after the wedding, but i've already put in for next year. :)
FREE!!! I can do that.
How fun it will be...
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:
I really, really want to go to this, but will be in the middle of my move to Monterey, CA. :-(
