The Seaver Cup was created in 1998 at the Ojai
Valley Inn & Spa as a biennial competition that
brings together the best players from Northern and
Southern California. The intra-state competition was
named in the honor of Charles Seaver, one of the
most successful and legendary golfers in California
amateur golf lore.
Charlie Seaver is one of two amateur to hold the
NCGA, SCGA, and California Amateur titles at the
same time, accomplishing this feat in 1933-34 (the
other being George Von Elm who pulled out the same
feat in 1925). After graduating from Stanford
University, Seaver was the shining example of
amateur golf in California.
