The Charlie Coe Invitational, organized by Mike Timbers, is played annually to honor one of the greatest amateurs ever. Coe is remembered for winning the U.S. Amateur twice, and for captaining the Walker Cup and Americas Cup teams. His first national amateur win came in 1949, and then again in 1958. Defending his title a year later, Coe lost to Jack Nicklaus. Coe had a distinguished Masters record. An Augusta National member, he played in 19 consecutive Masters, and finished as low amateur six times. He tied Arnold Palmer for second, behind Gary Player, in the 1961 Masters. In 1998, his alma mater, the University of Oklahoma, dedicated the Charlie Coe learning Center, a state of the art teaching facility. Coe was a member at Castle Pines until he died in 2001.
