Tournament Overview

Although its present history only dates from 1967, the Pacific Coast Amateur Championship's roots make it one of the oldest amateur golf championships in American history. The first tournament was held on the links of San Francisco Golf Club at The Presidio, April 24- 27, 1901. Championships were held annually through 1911, all being conducted in California except for the 1909 championship, which was held at Seattle Golf Club in Washington. The Pacific Coast Amateur then ceased to exist, only to be reconstituted at Seattle Golf Club on August 10-12, 1967 with the Pacific Northwest, Northern California, Southern California, Oregon and Arizona golf associations participating.

Today, 15 member Pacific Rim golf associations comprise the Pacific Coast Golf Association. Players can be invited to this 72- hole stroke play event by their Pacific Coast G.A. member golf association, or as an individual.

Although its present history dates only from 1967, the Pacific Coast Amateur Championship’s roots make it one of the oldest amateur golf championships in American history.

The first tournament was held on the links of the San Francisco Golf Club at The Presidio, April 24-27, 1901 . Championships were held annually through 1911, all being conducted in California except for the 1909 championship, which was held at Seattle Golf Club in Washington.

The Pacific Coast Amateur then ceased to exist, only to be reconstituted at the Seattle Golf Club on August 10-12, 1967 . The modern era of the PCGA occurred following a meeting of representatives of several golf associations throughout the western United States at Pebble Beach in November, 1965.

The objective of this meeting was to start a golf championship with the stature that would attract the attention of the USGA and display the ability of amateur golfers in the western United States for possible Walker Cup Team selection. Dr. Ed Updegraff from Tucson , Arizona , was the only western player who had recently participated (1963 and 1965) in the Walker Cup matches.

The Pacific Northwest , Northern California , Southern California , Oregon and Arizona Golf Associations participated in the inaugural Championship at Seattle Golf Club in 1967. Today, 18 member Pacific Rim golf associations comprise the Pacific Coast Golf Association.

The Morse Cup Team competition has been a major portion of the PCGA Championship since 1967. Each team consists of three players. From 1967 to 1996, the best two scores each day for the first two rounds were totaled for each team to determine the Morse Cup Champion. In the event of a tie, co-champions were recognized. However, the team play ended after 36 holes.

A significant change in the Championship format occurred in 1997. This change made it possible for golf associations throughout the international golf scene to become a part of this storied event. When the 31st annual competition began on July 29, 1997 , at Makena Resort’s South Course in Maui , Hawaii , the emphasis was on team play and scores were counted from all four rounds. This format change opened the door to include teams of three players representing other national and regional associations, as well as member associations of the PCGA.

In 2002, Trustees of the PCGA voted to return to the tournament’s original format, a moved spurred in large part by the fact that the USGA does not recognize results from team competitions in making selections for Walker Cup squads. The Pacific Coast Amateur is now an individual competition with all competitors playing 72 holes without a cut being made. The Morse Cup competition continues to be held in conjunction with the Championship, but only PCGA member associations are allowed to have teams.

Among the prominent individual champions are many who have played on Walker Cup teams: Dr. Ed Updegraff, Mike Brannan, Ron Commans, Mark Pfeil, Lindy Miller, John Fought, Mike Gove, Billy Mayfair, David Berganio, Jr., Todd Demsey, Randy Sonnier and Jason Gore.
