Bill Aliment was born into a family of golf professionals—his father, brother, uncle and cousin were all professional golfers. He turned professional himself in 1954 as an assistant to his father Joe at the Foster Golf Links in Tukwila, WA. Bill became the head professional of the club in 1960. Bill ran the Western Washington PGA Chapter pro-amateur events for 11 years. He was Pacific Northwest PGA Section president in 1977-78, a term that included involvement in the Western Golf Association scholarship fund. He was the Section’s secretary-treasurer twice. The Aliment family, which had owned the Foster Golf Links and surrounding property since 1951, sold the course in 1978 to the City of Tukwila. Bill retired from the golf shop in 1980.
