Event History
The Georgia Amateur Championship began in 1916 and has been contested at 29 different GSGA Member Clubs in 20 cities. This year is the 100th playing of the state championship. Beginning with 14-year-old Bobby Jones, who captured that first title in 1916 (still the youngest Amateur champion), there have been 73 different winners in the history of the event. Champions Tour player and two-time U.S. Senior Open champion Allen Doyle of LaGrange lays claim to the most titles (6), won between 1978 and 1990. Macon’s Arnold Blum pocketed five titles from 1946-56. Legendary Atlanta amateur Danny Yates has three championships to his credit – 1977, 1989 and 1996. Colin Bowles of Albany won the Centennial Georgia Amateur Championship in 2016, and Luke Schniederjans took home the trophy in 2020 at Atlanta Athletic Club (Highlands) in Johns Creek.
