Under the leadership of the Sacramento Golf Council, the committee realizes the importance of the Championship in Sacramento, Northern California and the West. The Tournament Committee will strive to conduct the "Premiere Men's Amateur Golf Championship in the West" by continuing to provide a professional, experienced committee, tour-like venue and always focusing on the players.

The Championship is limited to 156 players. 84 of the 156 spots are reserved for players meeting the "exemption criteria" as stipulated under the Exemptions Section of the Eligibility page with the remaining 60 spots available via qualifying. Competition commences over a 54-hole stroke play format with 18 holes played each day. The field is cut after 36 holes to the low 45 players & ties.
