HISTORY & PAST CHAMPIONS

St. Augustine Amateur

In 2004, John (Jay) Jennison III assembled a dedicated group of fellow amateur golf enthusiasts and founded the St. Augustine Amateur. Within just two years, the tournament became a designated Golfweek/amateurgolf.com World Amateur Golf Rankings event. Since its inception, the tournament has experienced great success, attracting nationally ranked players from across the country and all over the world. In doing so, our goal is to provide significant financial contribution to The First Tee of North Florida, a local youth development nonprofit organization.

The 54-hole stroke play, walking only, competition is conducted over three days. The player caddies, forecaddies, and standard bearers add to the experience. The field is limited to 84 players whose golf resumes and tournament experience have earned them a spot in the field. The winner receives the John C. Jennison III Trophy as well as Golfweek/amateurgolf.com World Amateur Golf Rankings Points.
