The San Diego City Amateur Championships is one of the best and largest tournaments in San Diego. The 2014 tournament is scheduled for Friday July 18th - Sunday July 20th. The 54 hole competition takes place at Balboa Park Golf Course and Torrey Pines North and South. Registration opens May 1, 2014 and closes June 27th.
Let me warn you that this tournament is nearly impossible to get into. The Championships division takes only the 60 lowest handicaps. I have played in this tournament 3 times, but only because I was called up from the wait list the night before, and I applied with a 1.3 handicap last year.
Starting May 1st, you can sign up for the tournament here:
The Entry fee is $295 for the 3 days, and usually covers lunch on the last day.
Balboa Park Golf Course is a hidden gem just outside of Downtown San Diego. The greens at Balboa are arguably some of the best in the county. Sure.. you can go play Maderas, Aviara, and Barona, but the views of downtown San Diego cannot be beat. Where else can you hit to a green with a cityscape and ocean in the backdrop. Take a look at this video we did at Balboa Park Golf Course. Visit the Official Balboa Park Golf Course Website here.
