A Rich History

The Washington Open Invitational dates back to 1922.  In that year, young Al Espinosa captured the crown at Yakima CC.  Some big names have won this event over the years including the Zimmerman brothers, Al and Emery, along with Chuck Congdon, Al Mengert, Senior Tour Player Rick Acton and PGA Tour Player Fred Couples.

There have been some amazing champions since the event started.  In 2016, Jeff Coston claimed his fifth Muckleshoot Casino Washington Open Invitational title adding to his wins in 96, 99, 2001, and 2010, tying him with legend Chuck Congdon in the most Washington Open Championships of all time. Chuck Congdon held the record for the most wins (39, 47, 50, 52, and 62) while Al Mengert holds the record for the most consecutive wins (63, 64, and 65).  The current tournament record is held by PGA Professional Tim Feenstra of Broadmoor GC (2011) and PGA Member Jeff Gove (2012).
