Seattle Amateur Tournament Info
Since its inception in 1935, this tournament has been the crown jewel of amateur golf in the Puget Sound. Today, boasting the strongest amateur field in the state, the Seattle Amateur is considered one of the most coveted championships in all of Washington.
This event is a 54-hole stroke play (all gross) competition with a cut after 36 holes to the low 54 players advancing to the final round who will then compete for the $10,000 prize fund. Jackson Park will not be a host site this year as their course will be impacted from the driving range construction.
Entries are open to the first 162 amateur golfers who have a USGA index of 3.5 or less (female players are welcome to compete but must convert to a men's qualifying index).
