~Tournament Format~

Entry into the championship will be four-man teams comprised of two professionals and two amateurs.  You will need to make your own team.

Teams will play together for the first 36 holes. There are two team competitions over the first 36 holes – best 2 net of the 4, and each professional will play a net four-ball with one amateur. Handicaps at 80% will be used in the team games.

The championship is a 54-hole stroke play with professional and amateur purses. After 36 holes, the field will be cut to the low 70 players and ties, repaired by score and the Oregon Open Invitational completed.

There is no maximum handicap for entry (18 max. in the competition), however, all players will play from the championship tees and there will be no individual net amateur.

All players will be governed by the Rules of Golf, Pace of Play, the Section Hard Card, the Section Dress Code and the Section Cell phone regulation.

~History of the Oregon Open Invitational~

This championship dates back to 1905 when George Smith was the first to win the title. Over the years a number of fantastic players have won the championship such as Tommy Armour, Chuck Congdon, Al Zimmerman, Bob Duden, Rick Acton, and PGA Tour Player Peter Jacobsen. It was considered a PGA Tour event in the late 1920s and early 1930s.

Last year, PGA Professional Brian Thornton of Meridian Valley CC won the Oregon Open Invitational by two strokes.  He won over fellow PGA Professional Corey Prugh of Manito G&CC. An amateur won the Oregon Open the two previous years. Can they get the title back?

~Juniper Golf Club~

JuniperGCNot many golf courses can attest to having three grand opening ceremonies. Juniper GC officially opened on Memorial Day in 1952. It was originally a 9-hole course, The second opening was in 1987 after PNW Section Hall of Famer Tim Berg was commissioned to redesign the 6,533 yard, 18-hole layout.

In 1995, the city of Redmond planned for a new highway bypass to travel directly through Juniper’s fairways. Thankfully, the government allowed the club to acquire the land it is currently sits on, two miles south of the original course. On July 2, 2005, Juniper had its third grand opening ceremony. This course was designed by the late esteemed golf course architect John Harbottle Jr, and in 2006, his design was honored by Golf Digest as one of America’s Best New Courses. In addition to the previous honor, from 2008 through 2012 Juniper has been rated one of the “Best Places to Play” in Oregon by Golf Digest.
