Started in 1938, the Vollmer Cup Trophy (originally, the August Vollmer Trophy and a 72-hole tournament) is a 36-Hole, medal play Honor Board tournament. “The Vollmer” is named after August “Augie” Vollmer (1876-1955), one of Tilden Golf Club’s earliest members, Berkeley’s Town Marshall (1905-1909), first Chief of Police (1909-1931), developer of Cal’s School of Criminology, and one of the founders and a first board director of the East Bay Regional Park District. Vollmer Peak overlooking Tilden Park (formerly Bald Peak) is named in his honor. According to one source, the actual “Vollmer Cup Perpetual Trophy” was last reportedly held by 1938 winner, Oakland firefighter Dave Gray.
FORMAT: Low total score over 36 holes, individual medal play at handicap.
