Qualifying event for the Stocker Cup Invitational, the premier amateur tournament on the West Coast. The 2006 event will be held October 13-16 at the Preserve Golf Club in Carmel, California (see the website at www.stockercup.com for all tournament details). At least 5 players make it into the tournament proper, but alternates can increase that number. For instance in 2005 9 players made it into the field via the qualifier.
The Stocker Cup is a Golfweek National Points event for Mid-Amateur golfers. Players must be at least 25 years of age as of the qualifying date and have a USGA or equivalent handicap index of 2.4 or lower.
Players advancing to the tournament proper will pay the "A" player entry fee of $275.00 which covers practice round and at least 54 holes of tournament golf, plus tournament dinner for player and spouse, and many extras.
