Welcome to the 2016 PacAm


The Lithia Pacific Amateur Golf Classic, brought to you by the Central Oregon Visitors Association, is the driving force for championship-caliber amateur golf in the West. In 2016, this prestigious annual event will celebrate its 20th year during the third week of September at courses around Central Oregon.

The three-day, net, stroke-play tournament takes place on some of the finest golf courses in the west and offers divisions for golfers of every skill level including: the Open/Gross Division for golfers looking to play without handicaps, multiple Competitive Net Divisions separated by age (Men, Senior Men, Mid-Senior, Super Senior, and Women) and the Non-competitive Division for the golfer looking for all of the great fun of the PacAm but with the allowance of the occasional foot wedge. Learn more about the tournament format and rules.

The Lithia Pacific Amateur Golf Classic is a three-day, 54-hole, stroke-play tournament, culminating in playoff competition at Sunriver Resort’s Crosswater Course.

All players in all divisions play 3 rounds of golf on 3 different courses daily (54 holes total) with players from their respective Flight. In the Competitive Divisions, the rules as defined by the USGA Rules of Golf will govern play.

The PacAm offers a Division for golfers of every skill level. Find the Division that works best for you and your group of friends.

To uphold the integrity of the tournament, pairings requests can not be honored. Players can however request to play in the same flight. Players can “play down” in age or handicap to be in the same flight as friends. Example: if four players are coming together and three of them are 10 handicaps and the fourth is a 12 handicap, the 12 can play as a 10 handicap for the tournament so he/she can play in the same flight; likewise someone who is in the Senior, Mid-Senior or Super Senior Division can play down to the Men’s age division. Players can not “play up” in age or handicap.

Tournament Handicaps are assigned based upon a participants handicap index range during the current year. Participants may be assigned a “tournament handicap” that is different than their USGA handicap based upon the lowest index from the current fiscal year or from past year’s scores and/or other factors. Your final tournament handicap will be made available prior to tournament play.  See the Rules page for more information on how Tournament Handicaps are calculated.

The use of caddies is NOT permitted during the Pacific Amateur Golf Classic.

No, but you must have an established handicap with a recognized Golf Association. Examples would be the Southern Nevada Golf Association, Executive Womens Golf Association and the Southern California Golf Association. Contact the PacAm tournament office if you have questions about whether your handicap is acceptable.
