The Pro-Assistants Championship is a two-man team competition with one head golf professional and their assistant golf professional playing a four-ball competition.

It all started in 1992, when the Pacific Northwest Pro-Assistant Championship got off to an exciting start.  It took the Progress Downs team of Jerry Minor and Ralph West SEVEN holes of sudden-death to finally shake the Royal Oaks duo of Steve Bowen and Michael Wilkerson.  After shooting 14-under at Tacoma Country and Golf Club, neither of the two teams could get a birdie putt to drop in the playoff.  The 1995 Redwood Golf Center team of Scott Williams and Mike Barnett still holds the tournament record after scorching the rest of the field with an 18-under 126 at McCormick Woods GC and winning by three strokes.  This championship has fostered camaraderie between the Head Professional and his Assistant and is one of the most popular events of the Pacific Northwest Section PGA.  In 2008, Head PGA Professional Steve Prugh and his Assistant Corey Prugh made history by being the first father-son duo to capture the title.

OverlakeThe original Overlake G&CC opened in 1927, and the architect for this 18 hole course was Frank James.  Overlake G&CC was in full swing until 1935, when the Great Depression forced the club’s closure.

In 1952, Norton Clapp agreed that another private golf club was needed and leased the 132 acre site to the newly formed Overlake G&CC.  The club’s founders hired A. Vernon Macan of Victoria to design a new layout.  Macan routed the second course in virtually the opposite direction as the original layout.  The new course at Overlake G&CC opened for play on June 27, 1953.
