The Catalina Island Golf Course was first built back in 1892 by the Banning brothers as a 3-hole course. The course has the distinction of being the oldest golf course in Southern California (and perhaps the West). By 1929, the course was expanded to a full 18-hole course. Many tournaments were played here, the most famous of which was the Bobby Jones Invitational Tournament held from 1931 to 1955, with a brief break during the war. Every spring top amateur golfers would visit and revisit the Catalina Course.
