~History of the PGA Professional Championship~

In 2000, the Pacific Northwest PGA Championship and the Section CPC merged to create one great tournament experience, with the top finishers going on to compete at the National PGA CPC Championship.  With a name change in 2006, the Pacific Northwest PGA Professional Championship now draws the strongest field of PGA members in the Northwest.

Last year, PGA Professional Tim Feenstra of Broadmoor GC won the PGA Professional Championship at Illahe Hills CC after posting rounds of 67-72-67-206.  He won in a one hole playoff against Scott Erdmann of Oswego Lake CC.

Tim Feenstra, Scott Erdmann, Ryan Benzel, Corey Prugh, Luke Bennett, Tom Sovay, Joe Carranza, Jeff Coston, Brian Thornton and Brad Faller all advanced to the 45th PGA Professional National Championship and will represent us this June.
