The Dye Club at Barefoot Resort will host the World Championship on August 30, dawning the overall winner of the 30th annual World Am. The Dye Club has been ranked among America’s Top 100 public courses and is a worthy replacement to TPC Myrtle Beach, the previous host for the past three years. “The Dye Club is an ideal venue to conclude the 30th annual Golf.com World Amateur Handicap Championship,” remarked tournament director Jeff Monday, “The golf course is among the best in America, and it’s a big-event facility. A field of nearly 3,500 golfers will be narrowed to flight winners, and the Dye Club will identify the most deserving champion.”

Most people spend their whole golfing careers, never able to obtain the elusive Hole-In-One. Depending upon where your sources are gathered, the general odds for an amateur to make one are roughly 1 in 12,000. For those fortunate enough to take claim to one, it is something they will remember and cherish for the rest of their lives, even after they succumb to giving up the sport.
USGA Rules Of Golf 12-1a
Rule 12-1a deals with searching for or identifying a ball that is covered by sand, anywhere on the course. The player is now entitled to touch or move as much sand as is deemed necessary to find or identify his ball. Once the ball has been properly found and identified, any sand that was moved must be replaced in order to re-create the original lie. Should the ball be moved, and it can be proven that the movement was directly attributable to the touching or moving of the sand to find or identify his ball, there is no penalty, and the ball must be replaced and the original lie re-created. In re-creating the lie under this Rule, the player is now allowed to leave a small part of the ball visible.

The Dye Course will be closed starting May 21st and reopen by July 16th.
