ABOUT THE Cravens Invitational
The Cravens Invitational began in 1925 and has
played at San Gabriel Country Club since 1943. It
annually attracts teams from all over the nation.
John Cravens, a Southern California sportsman, had
the idea for the event when he saw two-ball
matches in Scotland. He staged the first tournament
at the old Midwick Country Club in 1925. It was
moved to San Gabriel Country Club in 1943 and has
become an integral part of the golf program at San
The rules are simple - Each player must have a
handicap under 13 (11.9 index) and be an amateur.
The winners of each match are based on the net
scores. It is a grueling event. To win the
Championship, a team might have to play as many
108 holes, counting a qualifying round.
