The Stonebrae Classic is a golf tournament on the Web.com Tour. It was first played in 2009 at the TPC Stonebrae, (previously known as Stonebrae Country Club), in Hayward, California.[1]

The inaugural event had a prize fund of $600,000 with $108,000 going to the winner, Australian Michael Sim who shot a final round 64 to triumph by 6 strokes.[2] The 2010 event had the same purse and American Kevin Chappell won his first Nationwide Tour event. Daniel Chopra of Sweden won the 2011 event, shortened to 54 holes after fog delayed and then canceled the fourth round.[3]

The event was not played in 2013 due to construction of a new clubhouse, but returned in 2014.[4] In 2016, Stephan Jäger set the 18-hole scoring record (58) and 72-hole scoring record (250) on the Web.com Tour at this tournament.
