SONOMA, California (Oct. 20, 2014) — The field is set for the 23rd Stocker Cup, set to tee off at Sonoma Golf Club on Wednesday, October 22. Sonoma Golf Club has graciously agreed to host the Stocker Cup for 2014 since longtime host The Preserve Golf Club is recovering from the effects of California’s severe drought.
The Stocker Cup, the West Coast’s premier Mid-Amateur event, has been moved to Sonoma Golf Club in the heart of California Wine Country. This move was predicated by drought conditions at permanent tournament home The Preserve Golf Club. Additionally, tournament rounds will now be played Weds-Friday, with a practice round on Tuesday, October 21. That’s a day earlier than normal. A solid field of mid-amateur golfers is already committed to play for the Peter Stocker Trophy, and the committee has extended the date for players wishing an invitation to apply to play until Sept. 15. Peter Stocker Flight Contestants must have reached the age of 25 by the first day of the tournament.
