History of the Championship

The Marin County Amateur Championship is an annual golf tournament held at San Geronimo Golf Course in Marin County.  The tournament is a 36-Hole Stroke Play event, which consists of two flights: Championship and Senior (50+).  In 2011 the NCGA awarded the Marin County Amateur & Senior Championships as 100-point events and we have remained at that level since.

The tournament is put on by two local amateurs, Steven Wight and Michael Conklin, who felt that Marin County needed an annual individual golf championship.  The inaugural Marin County Amateur was held in September 2008 and consisted of 27 players.  In 2012, the tournament had a total of 105 players consisting of three flights: Championship, Senior & Women's.  Today, the tournament consists of only a Championship and Senior flight. 

In 2014, the Marin County Amateur partnered with AmateurGolf.com as their first Satellite Event.  The tournament is now part of their Player-of-the-Year series and the partnership brings together the excellence of AmateurGolf.com and the Marin County Amateur Championship.
