PlayGolfMyrtleBeach.com World Amateur Handicap Championship Announces Details of Event
12 Aug, 2019
Lending to Heroes, a mortgage company dedicated to helping American heroes reach their home financing goals, has been named title sponsor of the PlayGolfMyrtleBeach.com World Amateur Handicap Championship’s Welcome Party.
The “Lending to Heroes Welcome Party” will be held Sunday August 25 on The Avenue at Broadway at the Beach. Festivities will begin at 5:00 p.m. and feature live music, a performance by le Grande Cirque, drink specials, and random drawing prizes, including an entry into the 2020 World Am donated by Lending to Heroes.
The World Am, which attracts players from all 50 states and more than 20 countries, will be played on 60 of Myrtle Beach’s best courses August 26-30. This year’s tournament, which already has 3,041 players registered, is tracking to have more than 3,200 golfers again this year.
“We are delighted to welcome Lending to Heroes to the PlayGolfMyrtleBeach.com World Amateur team,” tournament director Scott Tomasello said. “The World Am is an event comprised of hundreds of first responders and military. Our participants are men and women willing to work toward a goal both on and off the course, and that makes Lending to Heroes an ideal partner. We look forward to this year’s Welcome Party being the best one yet.”
“It’s an honor to be chosen as the title sponsor for the World Am Welcome Party,” Vice President of Lending to Heroes Jeff Rosen offered. “We look forward to celebrating the golfers’ competitive spirit at the welcome party and expanding our mission of helping our American heroes with their home financing through their attendance and awareness.”
Lending to Heroes has helped thousands of law enforcement officers, firefighters, teachers, healthcare professionals and veterans achieve their home financing goals and has provided over $2M over the last ten years in support to these individuals and organizations. The company is the preferred lender for prominent professional organizations and agencies, such as the New Jersey State Police Benevolent Association and the Port Authority PBA due to its commitment to support those who serve our communities and country. Licensed Mortgage Originators provide the best loan programs and home financing advice available in the home lending industry.
The World Am, which costs $635 to enter, is open to all men and women with a verifiable USGA handicap.
The World Am flights players into nine divisions – men 49 and under, senior men (50-59), mid-senior men (60-69), super senior men (70-79), seasoned seniors (80+), women 49 and under, the gross division, senior (50+) gross division. There is also a “Just For Fun” flight, created for players who want to enjoy the World Am experience without the pressure of competition.
While competition is what initially attracts golfers to the World Am, it’s only part of the event’s story. At the heart of the World Am’s appeal is the camaraderie among its participants and much of that kinship is fostered at the World’s Largest 19th Hole.
Each night of the event, the 19th Hole overtakes all 120,000-square feet of the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, providing participants with free food and drinks, live entertainment, celebrity guest appearances, a golf expo and more.
Among the big names that have appeared at the 19th Hole in recent years are David Feherty, Brandel Chamblee, Charlie Rymer, Ewa Mataya Laurance and John Daly.
Players will also receive a gift bag that includes a Chase 54 polo, a pullover, a logo’d hat, a PGA Tour Superstore gift card and an assortment of other goodies.
