SAN DIEGO — Dale Antram, assistant to the commissioner of the Professional Golfers Assn., said Monday the Andy Williams-San Diego golf tournament will return in 1986.
Concern was raised over the tournament's status by a San Diego City Council committee last week. John Brophy, executive vice president of the Century Club, which runs the event, brought the matter to the committee's attention.
Brophy had a letter from the PGA stating the Torrey Pines courses were "far, far below standards expected by the PGA." Antram said the PGA commonly sends letters "trying to encourage progress" at the courses it utilizes.
"It's a situation with a city-owned facility," Antram said of Torrey Pines. "The operation has not had sufficient funds to be in top-notch condition for the tournament. That's nothing new. It has been going on for a number of years."
