History of the Championship

The Rosauers Open Invitational has been a part of the PNW PGA tournament program since 1988.  The famed golf tournament has been hosted at just two facilities.  Indian Canyon GC and MeadowWood GC.  We continue the tradition this year at Indian Canyon GC in Spokane, WA.

We have had some amazing champions since the event started.  PGA Professional Corey Prugh of Manito CC (2009, 2011, 2013 & 2015) holds the record for the most wins.  Derek Bayley set the 54 hole-tournament record of 189 (27-under par) at MeadowWood GC in 2016.  Bayley also holds the 18-hole tournament record of 59, 13-under par the same year at MeadowWood GC while PGA Professional Brady Sharp holds the 18-hole record of 60 at Indian Canyon GC set in 2017.

Indian Canyon GC

Indian Canyon logoIndian Canyon was built in 1935 for $200,000.  H. Chandler Egan, a member of the PNGA Hall of Fame, crafted the Canyon’s layout over the well-treed hillside southwest of the Spokane River.

Indian Canyon hosted the 1941 and 1984 Public Links Championships.  When Bill Welch was victorious in 1941, he concluded “After I played Indian Canyon, I never wanted to go back to Texas again.  I never saw a golf course that beautiful in my whole life… I did return to Texas, but only to pack my bags and move to Spokane.”

This municipal track has been annually rated among Golf Digest’s “Best Public Courses”, “Best Affordable Courses”, “Best Golf Courses You Can Play”, “Best in State” and taken individually, some holes rank with the best holes found on any course – public or private – in the region.  Indian Canyon’s lofty acclaim is well deserved.
