The 2015 TaylorMade Father and Son Invitational
The Pauma Valley Country Club
Pauma Valley, California
June 22-23, 2015
From Pat Mateer, Founder and President of Championship Golf
My father passed away in 1985. Shortly following this I started ChampionshipGolf with little more than a passion for the game of golf, a desire to be the best at whatever venture I pursued, and the values my father instilled in me. It was fitting, and fateful, that the first tournament my new company embarked upon was the Father and Son Invitational. It was simple, really – "What tournament would I want to play in if I had my choice?" While I regret having never played in this event with my father, I am more than consoled in the fact that over the past twenty seven years this special event has brought joy to so many fathers and sons from so many walks of life. Each year, around the Father’s Day timeframe, I am blessed to spend time with an amazing group of fathers, sons, grandfathers, uncles, and family members who share this truly life enriching experience. It is also my time to honor my father, and reflect on my life and how blessed I was to have him in my life as a teacher, a mentor, and a friend.
ChampionshipGolf has evolved through the years, but this event will always hold a special place for us. More than one of our participants through the years have stated, "I wish every father and son could experience this tournament." Well – You can! If you share the love of golf with your father and/or son, we invite you to join us this June at Pauma Valley, one of my favorite courses in the world!
