The 2020 Western Regional Symposium Golf Tournament will be held at the Pacific Grove Golf Links on

Monday, April 27th. This beautiful course plays like two entirely separate courses. The forested front nine

opened in 1932, and winds its way through the City of Pacific Grove, with the charm of an old style

English rural course. The back nine was designed by Jack Neville, the original designer of Pebble Beach Golf

Links, and is laid out in true links design over the dunes along the Pacific Ocean. Overlooking the course is the

Point Pinos Lighthouse, the longest continuously operating lighthouse on the West Coast.

Located within minutes of the Embassy Suites, the Pacific Grove Golf Links will provide many opportunities

for great conversation and networking with old and new friends. Join us for a great day of golf and fantastic

scenery. Prizes will be awarded for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams, longest drive, and closest to the pin.

The cost for golf is $125 and tickets can be purchased online under the Attendee Registration Link.
