WAGC is the only championship for amateurs that offers a chance to become World Champion.

Malaysia will host the 24th World Amateur Golfers Championship (WAGC) World Finals for the second straight year. Last year (2017) the World Finals were held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. For 2018 four golf courses in Johor will host this prestigious event.

WAGC is a global amateur golf competition where golfers of all skill levels compete to make their way to the World Finals…all with hopes to be crowned World Champion. Tournament competitions occur throughout the year to determine National Champions in each of five flighted divisions. National Champions in each division earn a spot in the World Finals held on prestigious golf courses around the world.

For 2018, two of the Ernie Els designed courses at Els Club on the Desaru Coast (Valley & Ocean Courses) and two courses at Palm Resort & Country Club (Allamanda & Cempaka Courses) have been selected to host the WAGC World Finals.

Team USA will also be represented in Johor, Malaysia with the winners from five (handicap flighted) divisions. Players will compete in regional tournaments and five majors to make it to the Team USA National Championship in August. Competition at the National Championship will determine who will receive an all-expense paid berth to the World Finals.

Team USA brought home an overall (team) 5th place finish in Kuala Lumpur in 2017. There were two 4th place individual honors and a 7th in the top ten. Competition is open for any male or female amateur golfer with a handicap of 25 or better who would like to compete to become World Champion. There will also be a limited number of “Invitational” spots available for the World Finals. Invitational competitors compete in a separate WAGI (World Golfers Amateur Invitational) Championship.
