SHARE:   

CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA (May 24, 2006) -- amateurgolf.com is set for a busy summer of tournament play, with one new Southern California event, and two classic Northern California events being played for the first time as part of the amateurgolf.com Tournament Series. All tournaments have Scratch (<5.5 handicap), Senior Scratch (<8.0 handicap), and Net (5.5 to 15.0 handicap) Divisions. Note: Our events are filling quickly - register now to avoid being shut out!

Upcoming events include:

The Monterey Peninsula Four Ball - July 1-2
San Juan Oaks Golf Club - Hollister, California

The Golf Club of California

San Juan Oaks was the first Fred Couples signature course to open in California (1997). The 7000-plus yard layout immediately took its place as one of the top daily fee facilities in Northern California, and it has proven itself as a competitive layout by hosting PGA Tour qualifying and several USGA and NCGA qualifiers. San Juan Oaks became the host of the Monterey Peninsula Four Ball in 2005 with a new 4th of July weekend date. Several Southern California teams joined their Northern Cal counterparts and we hope that even more Southern Cal teams will make the trip up this year.

The San Diego County Amateur: July 31-August 1
The Golf Club of California - Fallbrook, California

The Golf Club of California

We have a great new mid-summer date for this private-club event which we founded last year with a competitive field close to 100 players. The Golf Club of California, located in the pristine foothills of the city of Fallbrook, is a Wade Cable - Landmark/Johnny Pott design that opened in 2002 to rave reviews. The course will be in perfect shape, with tour-quality greens framed by white sand bunkers, and scenic holes that blend into the surrounding landscape that includes 100 year old oak, sycamore, and eucalyptus trees. The elegant Spanish-style clubhouse and generous practice area add a serious touch of class to the facility.

The 69th Annual Bay Regional: August 4-6
Tilden Park Golf Course - Berkeley, California

The Golf Club of California

amateurgolf.com has taken over administration of the Bay Regional, a tournament with a long history as one of the staples on the NCGA Calendar. To bring more players from out of town in to compete for the weekend, we have shortened the tournament from a two-weekend, 72-hole event to a 1 weekend, 54-hole event. Friday times will run approx 11:00am to 1:00pm; morning times will be used on Saturday and Sunday. The field will be cut after 36 holes to the low 1/3 of players, and ties, who will play Sunday for the title in each division. The Bay Regional is a 100 Point NCGA event!

The North Orange County Amateur: August 12-13
Black Gold Golf Club - Yorba Linda, California

The Golf Club of California

The Arthur Hills-designed Black Gold Golf Club opened for play in 2001, serving as the focal point of the Vista del Verde Community in Yorba Linda. At just 6756 yards, it might appear ripe for the taking at first glance. But there are several holes that definitely play easier the second time around, so a practice round is recommended for players wanting to contend for the Scratch, Senior, or Net titles.

The Oakland City Championship: September 16-17
Lake Chabot Golf Course - Oakland, California

The Golf Club of California

We're excited to announce that another Northern California event with a great tradition is now being adminsistered by amateurgolf.com. The host course, Lake Chabot, is truly one of the Bay Area's municipal golf gems. At first glance, the less than 6000 yard layout appears prone for attack. The subtleties of the hilly layout -- with small, greens that can rival the trickiness of nearby Sequoyah Country Club -- quickly become apparent as you wind your way through the course's hilly terrain. Lake Chabot, which was redesigned by Robert Muir Graves in 1989, finishes up with the only par-6 in the Bay Area, an unforgettable 18th hole that funnels straight downhill towards the clubhouse.
