The Tournament Committee cordially invites you to compete as a B Player, partnering with a nationally-ranked Mid-Amateur contestant in the team portion of the 2019 Stocker Cup.
The tournament will be contested Oct. 24-26 at The Preserve Golf Club in Carmel. Please complete your registration by September 15, 2019. If for some reason you can no longer attend – please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will remove you from this year’s list.
This year there are several changes being made to improve pace of play and overall satisfaction at this world class venue. The first is that we are limiting the field to 48 teams, down from as many of 54 teams. The committee believes that we can reducing the number of players, while providing an increased number of course marshals plus a longer tee time increment will help the Stocker Cup eliminate the only complaint we have received in the last two years – slow play.
As such, we have increased the A player entry fee to $850 and the B player fee to $2000. As in prior years, many B players choose to sponsor by paying an additional amount to help offset tournament expenses. You will see the options when you register.
Use the link and access code below to register. AGC Membership is not required, but those players that do decide to join will receive a complimentary second year with the purchase of a single year membership while supporting our growing coverage of the competitive amateur game! Preserve members may use the preferred member entry fee, or simply reply to this email with an RSVP yes to be billed on your member statement.

The Committee will attempt to provide on-site member housing for all players, however we can not guarantee there will be enough spots. Please make any lodging requests when completing your registration. We ask that you do not contact homeowners directly, even if you have stayed with them in the past.
The Stocker Cup was founded in 1991 to honor the memory of Peter Stocker. Peter and his partners Bill Harlan and John Montgomery founded San Francisco’s Pacific Union Company, a highly successful real estate development company. The firm initiated the development of The Santa Lucia Preserve, a 20,000 acre residential and golf community located above Carmel. Meandering through the winding road to The Preserve’s centerpiece — the top-100 rated golf course — has been described as “driving through a California postcard.” The Stocker Cup was played from 1991 to 1999 at Pebble Beach and its surrounding golf courses, before moving to the Tom Fazio and Sandy Tatum designed Preserve G.C. In the words of former USGA President Tatum: “Peter Stocker was the quintessential amateur golfer. He loved golf with a passion. He would have loved this tournament.”
54-hole individual competition with a simultaneous best-ball event, similar to the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Invited Mid-Amateur players are either paired with a single digit amateur or can propose their own partner to be introduced and invited by the Committee.
