The Sunset-Camellia Open Invitational was a PGA Tour event that was played at Sunset Oaks Country Club in Rocklin, California in October 1964. It was played for only a single year, although at the time it was hoped that it would become a regular stop on the Tour. Big name professional golfers like Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus elected not to play, and despite intensive local media coverage, galleries were small.[1][2]

The tournament was won by Californian Bob McCallister, his second victory in a PGA event. The failure of the tournament and the demise of Sunset City, a real estate project associated with the country club, led to a series of name changes and changes in ownership.[1][2]
