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+). The Marin County  Amateur Championship and the Senior Championship are eligible for the  Northern California Golf Association Points Program.

The tournament committee's mission is to offer amateur golfers a championship experience of the highest level.   The committee provides all contestants pin sheets, local rules, fruit  and drinks on course and have several marshals and rules officials to assist  contestants.  Pace of play is a main focus point for the committee and  players are grouped as 3-somes and sent off every 10 minutes to address  this concern.
