AGC Livermore Valley - Cancelled Due to RAIN
LIVERMORE, Calif. (January 4, 2008) -- Due to the storm that has hit the Bay Area so hard, knocking out power to over 500,000 people, amateurgolf.com has cancelled this weekend's Livermore Valley Championship tournament in its entirety. Many factors were taken into account, and while the possibility of "squeezing in" one round exists, it would be at best on an extremely wet course with water in bunkers, muddy conditions, and more.

Driving conditions in the area are deplorable, with many road closures and safety issues. Sunday's weather looks worse than Saturday.

We will provide all players with a full credit to be applied to any amateurgolf.com event (even Bandon Dunes or Kiawah Island as a potential deposit payment) which does not expire.

Like Tiger's "cuts made" record, our streak has come to an end at 300-plus tournament rounds without losing a single one to rain.

It was a great run!

ABOUT THE amateurgolf.com 2008 Livermore Valley Championship

The 2008 Livermore Valley Championship was cancelled due to a "100 year" storm that moved through the Bay Area the first week of January, closing bridges, roads, and knocking down trees all over the place. It was the first time in our 8 year history that we cancelled a golf tournament.

Originally, we planned to reschedule for December of 2008 but we have since changed the venue of this tournament to Hiddenbrooke in Vallejo.

The new tournament name is the "North Bay Championship" on January 3-4, 2009 -- go to the schedule page for registration and tournament info. Most players were provided with a credit towards another of our events; if you have not taken advantage of this you may either play in the 2009 North Bay Championship at Hiddenbrooke or you may transfer this credit to another of our tournaments. Contact Trisha Williams at 408-406-2035 for assistance.
