Everett G&CC

Everett Golf and Country Club was founded in 1910 as a 9-hole facility that was designed by their local membership. In 1920, the late Ottar Thomle came up with a design for the second 9-holes. The facility has had some additions over the years from AV Macan and Ted Robinson. The golf course is an old northwest classic – short by modern standards; relatively hilly, smallish well-mounded greens with narrow fairways lined by stately Douglas Firs.

Head PGA Professional Brent Webber is excited to host. The optional Pro-Am is returning on Wednesday. Please make sure to sign up on your Section entry form.

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 Rob Gibbons of Arrowhead GC won this event with PGA Professionals Joe Carranza of Aldarra Golf Club and Jeff Coston of Semiahmoo G&CC coming in third.
