Worth It!

“What better event to play in than the section championship? Not only are you supporting our section but ultimately have the possibility to represent our section at Nationals and even possibly at a major… Also, it has a very good payout and makes the trip and time away from work well worth it.” – Russell Grove, PGA

This championship confers the title of “The Pacific Northwest Section Champion”. It is the most important and elite PNW PGA tournament of the season. In addition to the winner, 6 players will advance to the PGA Professional Championship.

We are also playing for a large purse. This is a fun event for all, with fantastic competition and comradery with your fellow PNW PGA members.

Your Section Championship & Qualifier for the National PGA Championship

 Eligibility

The PNW PGA Professional Championship presented by Cadillac, Club Car and OMEGA is only open to PGA Members who are employed and classified in one of the eligible membership classifications (see PDF) as of September 4 including LMA and LMMA. The PGA of America Headquarters records must reflect this status at time of entry and on the Section entry deadline.

 Note: Grooves and Punch Mark Specifications
In making a stroke, the player must use clubs that conform to the groove and punch mark specifications in the Equipment Rules that took effect on 1 January 2010. Ping Eye 2 irons manufactured before 31 March 1990 with a groove spacing to groove width ratio of 2.3 to 1 are allowed for play under Rules of Golf, even when this Local Rule is in effect (See Model Local Rule G-2 in Committee Procedures).

 Advancement

The top seven qualifiers will advance directly to the 2020 PGA Professional Championship presented by Cadillac, Club Car and OMEGA, held at Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa in Austin, Texas on April 26-29, 2020.

Additionally, the low 20 scores at the 2020 PGA Professional Championship presented by Cadillac, Club Car and OMEGA will earn a place in the 102nd PGA Championship at Harding Park Golf Club in San Francisco, CA, May 11-17, 2020.

Last year, seven professionals advanced to the 52nd PGA Professional Championship to be held this month at Belfair West & East Courses in Bluffton, SC: Russell Grove, Gordon Corder, Scott Erdmann, Jeff Coston, Ryan Malby, Jason Aichele and Brian Nosler.

The Return to Indian Summer G&CC

Known for its superb, year-round conditioning, Indian Summer Golf & Country Club is among the Northwest’s premier, private golf clubs. The Peter L. H. Thompson designed golf course is built to rigid, tournament-caliber specifications with magnificent, old-growth forest and an abundance of water features. Voted “Best of Web.com Tour” by players, Indian Summer G&CC previously hosted the PNW PGA Professional Championship in 2001.

A Tradition of Competition

The Section Championship dates back to 1934, with Verne Torfin winning the title at Fircrest GC. In 2000, the Pacific Northwest PGA Championship merged with the Section CPC to create one great tournament experience, with the top finishers going on to compete at the National PGA Championship.

Only open to Section Professionals, this event draws the strongest field of PGA members in the Northwest.  Last year, PGA Professional Russell Grove of North Idaho College won in a one-hole playoff against Tim Feenstra of Broadmoor GC.
