Beginning on Thursday, Oct. 30 the Tigers’ golf team will host its annual Visit Stockton Pacific Invitational as Pacific brings in 10 teams to Stockton Golf and Country Club for the tournament. The Tigers are looking to reclaim their championship trophy after a stellar start to their 2014-15 season, but they will have to take it from the reigning champion BYU Cougars who return once again to Stockton.
All the action begins at 8:30 am on Thursday afternoon with teams teeing off from holes 1 & 10. The Tigers begin their quest for the title at 9:20 am from the first tee. Playing the tournament for the Tigers are: Byron Meth, Drew Bender, SeungJae Maeng, Matt Lee and Anthony Madrid. In addition, Colten Passey and Jesper Kasanen will be hitting the course as individual participants for Pacific. Kasanen’s appearance will be his first of the year for the Tigers as he will be making his collegiate debut.
The Stockton Golf and Country Club was established in 1914 by a group of local citizens. At that time, there were only 12 golf courses in California. For 100 years, Stockton Golf & Country Club has provided the community with a source of recreation and a place of social gathering. Changes and improvements continued over the years, and while our Country Club has grown and matured, it has not lost its’ youthful exuberance.
