ABOUT THE Southern California Amateur

The SCGA Amateur is one of the nation’s oldest continuously contested amateur golf championships. The first SCGA Amateur was held less than one year after the Southern California Golf Association was formed on July 29, 1899. Only the Utah Amateur, begun in 1899, has a longer consecutive string (the U.S. Open and U.S. Amateur both predate the SCGA Amateur, but both USGA events were suspended during war years).

Since the inaugural event, the SCGA Amateur has enjoyed an illustrious history of great champions, including Tiger Woods and Al Geiberger to more recent stars including Beau Hossler and Patrick Cantlay. The event is open to association members with a Handicap Index of 5.4 and below. Competitors undergo 18 holes of qualifying play in order to reach the final field, who compete over 72 holes of stroke play with the top 42 and ties advancing after the first 36 holes. The championship site is traditionally held at the home club of the current SCGA President.
