The PGA of America has adopted the condition of competition for Grooves and/or Punch Marks at the Section level of the Pacific Northwest PGA Assistant Championship. Starting this year, ALL PLAYERS MUST comply with this condition of competition.
~History of the Championship~
This year’s Assistant Championship marks the 38th Anniversary as a National event but the PNW Section has been conducting the event since Fred Pelzer donated the trophy in 1965.
The National Championship tradition began in 1976 to recognize the role of the PGA Assistant Professional and how important he or she may be in the success of a golf facility as well as our entire Association. They represent more than 10,000 men and women assistant professionals and registered apprentices nationwide.
~History of Rainier Golf and Country Club~
Designed and built by Bob Collins, Rainier Golf & Country Club opened it’s first 9 hole “golfing grounds” on September 15, 1920. It was considered one of the finest “out-in-the-country golf links” in the Seattle area, with the second nine opened for play in the summer of 1924.
Rainier, the second oldest private golf club in Seattle, has matured and evolved into one of the most imaginative and demanding tests of golf in the Northwest. The course is a shotmaker’s delight; it rewards power, finesse, and most importantly, accuracy. Host PGA Professionals Carol Brogan and Darren Black are excited to host.
See you at Rainier Golf and Country Club!
