Originally known as the Father and Son, this alternate shot, match play tournament was the brain child of legendary San Francisco sports writer, Art Rosenbaum. It was first played in the summer of 1951 as part of the grand opening of the Golden Gate Golf Course. In 1995, the tournament was opened to female players and the name of the tournament changed to the Family Golf Tournament. This event was played annually from 1951 through 2003. After a three year break due to financial problems, the tournament was restarted in the fall of 2007 and continues to this day. Past participants include: Former US Open Champions Ken Venturi and Johnny Miller; former San Francisco amateur champion John Susko; current LPGA star Dorothy Delasin; former San Francisco Champion Tom Culligan; and former mayor Art Agnos.
Qualifying: An eighteen hole, medal play, alternate shot qualifying round will be played to determine match play flights.
