The 16th annual GolfWorld Pacific Amateur is set for Aug. 26-31 at some of Central Oregon’s best golf courses.

The event is expected to attract over 600 players from around the country. Players will be divided into flights for a three-day, stroke-play event with handicaps being used. There will be a gross division for players without handicaps.

The event is put on by the Central Oregon Visitors Association and is one of the top amateur tournaments in the country.

The top players from each of the flights will get together on the final day of the tournament to play for the tournament championship. Anybody with a GHIN handicap is eligible to play. For more information call 888.425.3976 or check out the web site
