Opened in 2007, Chambers Bay has played host to a number of high-profile amateur and professional events in its short history, including the 2010 US Amateur Championship and most recently, the 2015 US Open Championship. This is the first time Chambers Bay has hosted the Pacific Coast Amateur and the second year-in-a-row the prestigious event will be held in the state of Washington, having been contested last year at the Seattle Golf Club.
The Morse Cup Team Competition has been held as part of the Pacific Coast Amateur Championship since the tournament’s rebirth in 1967. Each Member Association that belongs to the Pacific Coast Golf Association designates three players as its Morse Cup team. The best two of three scores each day during the first two days of the 72-hole championship count for the team score.
