Squamish Men’s Amateur
THE 47th SQUAMISH MEN’S AMATEUR
June 17-18, 2017
The Men’s Amateur Draw was completed Tuesday evening and will be posted by the end of Wednesday’s business day. It should be noted that a handicap factor of 8.5 (which translates to a 10 at SVGC) was used to determine the players placed in Flight A to play from the tips and players 8.6 and higher were placed in Flight B to play from the golds. There will be a complete redraw in Flight A done in Gross order and a complete redraw of Flight B done in Net order for Sunday.
Entry includes: two rounds of golf, three meals (breakfast, lunch, & dinner), two free drinks, and SVGC’s traditional first tee gift. Entry Fee: $195 +tax
A Practice Round discounted to $39.95 can be scheduled for anytime that week.
Friday’s Horserace starts at 6:00pm and is limited to 10 teams (20 people)- winning team takes all. Entry is $20 (reserve a spot beforehand, to be paid day of event)
Saturday’s “Big Break” is a putting & chipping wall contest- winner gets free entry into next year’s amateur. Entry is $10 (can be paid beforehand or at registration)
The Superintendent says Course is in great shape for the weekend. Please note the Club still offers the Pasta Buffet on Friday evenings. Registration will only take place between 6:00am and 1:00pm on Saturday this year.
There are a couple of spots left in each group for late entries.
Looking forward to hosting you again! – Brian Avey, General Manager

The 2016 event attracted its strongest field to date with 62 % of the players having single digit handicaps. It was noted by many that the Course was in the best condition in 2016 the players have ever seen. Last year’s Men’s Amateur saw eight former winners return to defend their titles as well as two new winners; Jarad Boddy (Coquitlam) winning Low Gross with a score of 141 and Larry Oliver (Bowen Island) taking top prize in the Low Net category with a score of 140.
