~History of the Pacific Northwest Pro-Am Championship~

The history of the Pacific Northwest Professional-Amateur Championship has been timeless.  It all started when a young head professional named John Junor and his amateur partner won back to back titles at the magnificent Seattle Golf Club in 1924 and 1926 (no championship in 1925).  Professional Walter Pursey and amateur Harry Givan topped Junor in the late 30’s with a three-peat victory at Seattle GC twice and Alderwood GC once.  As the years went on, many great players etched their names into the record books as champions of this event.  Long time professional Don Bies and his partners have seen numerous championships winning three of them in 1961 at Glendale CC, 1964 at Seattle GC, and in 1966 at Yakima CC.  Other greats such as Bunny Mason (1963) and Jerry Mowlds (1969, 1978) have all had their share of the title.

PGA Professional Brian Thornton of Meridian Valley CC and amateur Todd Densley won by seven strokes over first round leaders PGA Professional Mike DeLong of Coeur d’Alene Resort with his amateur Bob Christensen.  Thornton and Densley fired a nine under par 63 at the new Rope Rider course at Suncadia Resort.

~History of Salishan Golf Links~

Originally built in 1964 over two phases, Salishan’s mixture of woodlands and links has helped to define golf along the Oregon coast.  With a renovation in 2003 by Jacobsen/Hardy Golf Design, the links have been transformed to take further advantage of the location on the Pacific Ocean.
