Chambers Bay will play host to 2024 Pacific Coast Amateur

Updated: October 30, 2023

The Pacific Coast Golf Association (PCGA) has announced that the 57th Pacific Coast Amateur Championship will take place July 23-26, 2024, at Chambers Bay in University Place, Wash.

This marks the third time that Chambers Bay will serve as the host for the Pacific Coast Amateur, following its successful hosting in 2017 and 2021. This continuation of tradition further solidifies the reputation of Chambers Bay, which is owned by Pierce County and managed by KemperSports, as a premier destination for high-profile golf championships.

The Pacific Coast Amateur is one of seven prestigious amateur championships comprising the Elite Amateur Golf Series (EAGS). In this series, players accumulate World Amateur Golf Ranking (WAGR) points and vie for the Elite Amateur Cup. Top finishers in these tournaments earn exemptions to compete in USGA Championships, as well as PGA TOUR and Korn Ferry Tour events.

The Pacific Coast remains the premier amateur championship on the West Coast, and is circled on all amateur golf calendars in North America. It consistently receives a strong “Power” rating from WAGR, as assessed by The R&A and USGA.

Recent champions of the Pacific Coast Amateur include Doug Ghim (2017), Isaiah Salinda (2018), Quade Cummins (2019), Devon Bling (2021), James Leow (2022), and Tyson Shelley (2023). Noteworthy past champions who have gone on to achieve success on the PGA TOUR include Will Zalatoris, Aaron Wise, Andrew Putnam, Jason Gore, and Billy Mayfair, among others.

Much of the championship’s recent success can be directly attributed to the exceptional quality of the venue, and in 2024, Chambers Bay will continue this proud tradition.

“Chambers Bay continues to be a great partner with the Pacific Coast Golf Association,” said Troy Andrew, executive director of the Pacific Coast Golf Association.

Past host sites for the championship have included premier venues in the western U.S. and Canada such as The Olympic Club, Eugene Country Club, Seattle Golf Club, Capilano Golf and Country Club, and Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, among others to host the event.
