2014 Pro-Assistant Champions

The best part of the championship was “knowing that I can compete with the best guys in the Section – and of course getting to play with the boss!” ~Colin Inglis from Emerald Valley GC (2014 Pro-Assistant Champion)

Last year, Head PGA Professional Todd O’Neal of Emerald Valley GC and Assistant Professional Colin Inglis won the Pro-Assistant Championship at Royal Oaks CC after a 1-hole playoff.  They won against the team from Semiahmoo G&CC with Director of Golf Brett Eaton and Assistant Professional Trevin Williams.  The two teams had a two day total of 133, 11 under par for the Four-Ball competition. For Inglis, the best part of the championship was, “knowing that I can compete with the best guys in the Section – and of course getting to play with the boss.”

Start the season with the PNW Pro-Assistant Championship and Section Spring Meeting, at beautiful Meridian Valley CC. This exceptional 18-hole layout was designed by Ted Robinson, one of the nation’s leading golf course architects, who chose the site based on the stunning views the surrounding area provided.  MVCC opened in 1967 with 9 holes ready for play.  The second nine holes and clubhouse opened in 1968. Over the years, MVCC has grown into one of the Northwest’s most respected golf courses. It has hosted the 1972, 1976, 2002, 2004, 2005, and 2009, 2013 and 2014 Washington Open Invitational, as well as the SAFECO Classic from 1982 until 1999.
