The Pacific Northwest PGA Professional Championship is under way at Canyon River GC in Missoula, MT.  We have our top PNW PGA Members all vying for the title of  PNW PGA Professional Champion and not only the opportunity to add their name to the list of champions but to also advance directly to the 49th PGA Professional Championship, June 26-June 29th, 2016, at Turning Stone Resorts Atunyote and Shenendoah Courses – in Verona, New York.

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.

The PNW PGA Professional Championship is a 54 hole individual competition.  The top 8 finishers in our PNW PGA Professional Championship will advance directly to the 49th PGA Professional Championship next June.

Additionally, the low 20 scores at the 49th PGA Professional Championship next June will earn a place in the 98th PGA Championship, July 28-31, 2016, at Baltusrol Golf Club, Lower Course, Springfield, New Jersey.

Results will be posted at regular intervals throughout the day at https://www.pnwpga.com/results/resultsppc15.html   “Almost live scoring” will begin at 10:00 am each morning after the groups begin turning.  Be looking to see if one of your friends posts a low score!

Canyon-River-100x86Canyon River Golf Course was designed by Lee E. Schmidt, ASGCA/Brian Curley, ASGCA and opened in 2006.  Canyon River meanders through towering pines and native grasslands.  It offers numerous lakes and riparian marshes located throughout the property that come into play on seven holes.  And if that isn’t enough, the mountains around the course provide for some amazing views.

Canyon River Golf Course was named by Golf Digest as one of the top ten new public courses to play in 2008. The PPC was held there in 2010, and we are excited they have welcomed us back!
