Come “Home” to the Home Course

The Home Course was designed by golf course architect Mike Asmundson of Scottsdale, Arizona and opened on June 29, 2007. It is a walkable layout with panoramic views of Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains, and Mount Rainier present throughout the golf course.

The Home Course was selected by the United States Golf Association as the assisting course for the 2010 U.S. Amateur Championship. The Home Course will assist the primary course, Chambers Bay Golf Course in University Place, WA in conducting America’s National Amateur Championship. It is truly a great championship golf course at the home of golf in the Pacific Northwest.

A Senior Tradition

The Senior PGA Professional Championship was established in 1952. Back then, the championship was held at the Yakima Elks’ G&CC with only 21 professionals battling it out for the mere sum of $920 dollars. The famous Bob Duden won the championship six times during the 70’s and seven times overall. Today, this is a popular event for Section seniors.

Last year, PGA Professional Steve Stull of Meadow Springs CC won the Senior PGA Professional Championship by two strokes over PGA Professional Joe Carranza of Aldarra Golf Club.
