Play for one of the Largest Section Purses in the Country!

This is our biggest Section purse, at $135,000 total with an $11,000 first place check. It is also one of the largest purses in the country! In addition, we have added once again a 36- hole net purse for three professionals who miss the cut. We expect it to be similar to the past, which was: 1st place $350 / 2nd place $325 / 3rd place $300. The payout is deep –34 PGA Professionals will make a $1,000 check or higher.

Join the Umpqua Bank Pro-Am

The main reason the purse is so large is our sponsors! Professionals, after you sign up for the Rosauers Open Invitational, please do not forget to also sign up for the Umpqua Bank Pro-Am on Wednesday-Thursday, July 13-14. You will be paired with a sponsor team and have the opportunity to play the course in tournament conditions before the championship, enjoy a hosted breakfast, lunch and dinner each day, as well as win money and have a chance to thank our sponsors personally.

These sponsors also raise funds of $105,000-$135,000 annually for the Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery, the official charity of the Rosauers Open Invitational. Email Molly Cooper at mcooper@pgahq.com to let her know of your availability during the Umpqua Bank Pro-Am. Participation in the pro-am is important to keeping this championship great!

Play one of Washington’s Most Desired Courses to Play

MeadowWood Golf Course is an 18-hole par 72 championship public municipal golf course. In 1985, Jeslyn Morris Schultz of the Schultz family donated 150 acres to Spokane County to build the Links style golf course, designed by Robert Muir. Opened in 1988, MeadowWood is mainly an open course with strategically placed trees, bunkers, and water features. With a varying set of tees, it can be enjoyed by golfers of all skill levels. Golf Digest once ranked MeadowWood “One of the Top 10 Best Public Golf Courses in the State of Washington”.

Join the Ranks of Champions

The record for most Rosauers wins is held by Corey Prugh of Manito CC (2009, 2011 & 2013, 2015). Prugh also set the tournament record of 192 in 2009 at Indian Canyon GC. Other notable past champions are Jeff Coston (1997, 2006, and 2008), Tim Feenstra (2014), David Phay (2012), Ryan Benzel (2005), Casey McCoy (2001), Todd Erwin (2000), Bill Porter (1999), Rob Gibbons (1991) and Gary Lindeblad (1990). Will you add your name to a long list of amazing champions this July?

Last year, PGA Professional Corey Prugh of Manito G&CC won his fourth Rosauers Open Invitational by one stroke after firing rounds of 67-64-64-195, 18-under par. Prugh had to knock in an eight foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to win by one stroke over PGA Professional Derek Barron. PGA Professional Jeff Coston of Semiahmoo G&CC finished in third place.
