Get your new year started in fine golfing fashion by entering the Las Vegas World Amateur tournament, February 9 -13, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Premiere golf courses participating in the event include Bali Hai, Desert Pines, Stallion Mountain, Las Vegas National, and Spanish Trail. The championship round will take place at Bali Hai Golf Club.
The $750 entry fee includes 54 holes of net stroke tournament play on a different course each day, a welcome reception the first night at Bali Hai, the awards dinner, along with a gift bag upon arrival. The tournament entry deadline is 5 p.m., January 30, 2015.
The Las Vegas World Amateur is a handicapped event open to all golfers of all skill levels – men, women, young and old – anyone with a valid USGA Handicap Index (issued by a licensed club or federation). It features six competitive age-based divisions, and golfers are flighted by handicaps within each division. Each flight winner advances to the championship round to determine the world champion. Each flight plays a different course each day.
When the golfing is finished for the day, it’s time to enjoy the many sights and sounds the Las Vegas nighttime has to offer. Whether you’re walking the Strip, playing the slots, watching a show, or dining at one of the hundreds of fabulous restaurants in Sin City, you’ll be hard-pressed to find time to sleep! The restaurants in Las Vegas are everything you’ve heard, and more. From deep-fried Oreos you eat while standing to six-course meals you eat sitting in the chef’s private dining room, your taste buds will face temptations they cannot yet imagine.
To that end, the Las Vegas World Amateur tournament welcome reception will again be held at Cili, a unique and exotically-themed gourmet restaurant at Bali Hai Golf Club, which is located right on the famed Las Vegas Strip.
The five-day event concludes with a jubilant awards dinner, held at the Gold Coast Hotel & Casino. For more information or to register for this fun-filled event, visit www.LVWorldAm.com or call 702-458-4653.
