Memoriam

Ken Still
2/12/1935 – 3/19/2017
Fircrest GC
Ken Still was born in Tacoma, Washington and turned professional in 1953. He played for 22 years on the PGA Tour, winning three tournaments: the Florida Citrus and Milwaukee opens in 1969; the Kaiser Invitational in 1970. He was in the top 60 on the Tour money list for eight straight years, from 1966-73, gaining him exemption from tournament qualifying. Still’s best year as a touring pro was 1969, when he was 25th on the money list and qualified for the 1969 Ryder Cup Matches against the British at Royal Birkdale Golf Club, Southport, England. When Still turned 50, he qualified automatically in 1985 for the PGA Senior Tour. He was 14th on the money list his first year, and played for another 11 years. Still won the Washington Open in 1966 and was a finalist in the Washington PGA Match Play in 1980 and ‘81, winning in 1980. He played in the Hudson Cup Matches in 1983 and 1984. He was inducted into the PNW PGA Hall of Fame in 1995.

He took the position of Head Pro at Moses Lake Golf & CC in 1960 where he stayed for 22 years until his retirement in 1982. He served as the President of the Inland Empire chapter of the PGA throughout his time as a Head Pro.

Dennis was known for a long stint at Waverley Country Club and most recently as the Head Professional at Colwood Golf Center. Along the way, Dennis spent time with Bridgestone Golf, Glendoveer, Tualatin and Indian Creek. Truly one of the nicest guys on our business, Dennis will be greatly missed.

In 1968 Dowaliby opened the Calabasas Country Club also in California as their first PGA Professional and set out building a large Junior Golf Program. Finally, in 1977, the native Californian took over the helm at the Whitefish Lake Golf Club and for the next 22 years exemplified what it means to a PGA Professional and a gentleman. Mike was inducted into the Pacific Northwest Section PGA Hall of Fame on April 26, 2013 at Seattle Golf Club.
Herbert “Herb” Magnusson
12/16/1933 – 12/22/2017
Useless Bay G&CC
Herb turned pro while an assistant at Jackson Park GC. The following year he qualified for and played in the PGA Championship Tournament. After stints as the club pro in Ellensburg and Puetz Golf in North Seattle, he was hired as the club professional at the Gallery Golf Course in Oak Harbor in 1972, serving in that position until he retired in 1992. Shortly after his retirement he was contacted by the Useless Bay Golf and Country Club to see if he would be willing to provide free lessons to the ladies of the club on a weekly basis. He accepted, and provided free lessons every week until May 2016. In appreciation for Herb’s service, a covered driving range was built, called “Herb Magnusson Learning Center.”
