PGA of BC Assistants' Championship history

Assistants' Championship

The PGA of BC Assistants' Championship is open to all members serving in roles other than Head, Executive or Head Teaching Professional within the Association. Contested each June, the event is a 36-hole, individual stroke-play championship. 

The Assistants' Championship is the Association's longest-running competition, debuting in 1948 as the City Assistant Professionals' Tournament. The event was considered a provincial championship by 1951, with 36 holes played in a single day.

The tournament was further elevated in 1967 with the introduction of the Stan Leonard Trophy, the event's first sponsor-furnished prize purse, and play being conducted with two 18-hole rounds over two days. The whereabouts of the original Stan Leonard Trophy is unclear, but the format has remained largely unchanged.
