A Fun & Historic Event

The history of the Northwest Open is a significant part of golf in the Pacific Northwest. The early years were dominated by Seattle Golf Club’s Robert Johnstone (who won 8 of the first 10 events) and “Long Jim” Barnes.  Barnes, the professional at Tacoma C&GC from 1911 – 1915, won the first two PGA Championships (1916, 1919) in addition to the 1921 U.S. Open and the 1925 British Open!  Spokane’s Marvin “Bud” Ward captured six championships over a 22 year span, five as an amateur and his last as a professional.  Bud was also a National Amateur champion and may have won a few more but for the lack of championships during WWII.

Last year, PGA Professional Shane Prante of The Home Course successfully defended his title. Prante’s 200 total matched his 2017 score and made him the first back-to-back Northwest Open Champion in 12 years. Nick Mandell won Low Amateur honors.
