The PNW PGA’s Most Popular Senior Tournament

Team entries are now available for the Senior Oregon Open Invitational at Wildhorse Resort and Casino on July 30-August 1.  Host PGA Professional Michael Hegarty is looking forward to hosting again this year for the 17th straight year! Here are Joe Carranza’s favorite things about the Senior Oregon Open:

Myself and my team members just love coming to the Oregon Senior Open. First off, we never have bad weather. And we all love the fact that accommodations are just a golf cart ride away. And lastly, the golf course is always in great shape. Nice weather, great accommodations and a great golf course, my team and I couldn’t think of a better place to be in the last week of July!” – Joe Carranza

We couldn’t agree with Joe more!

Since its induction in 1996, the Senior Oregon Open has grown to be the premier senior golf tournament in the Northwest.  This event draws the best players ages 50 and over from all over the Pacific Northwest Section.

We expect a strong field of competitors for the Senior Oregon Open Invitational this year as we return to the Wildhorse Resort & Casino. We will have a full field of 56 teams (224 PGA Professionals and amateurs). This event fills every year and usually has a large waiting list. Please make sure you are aware of the entry priority processing procedure to see what category you fall under. You must sign up as a team, one PNW PGA Professional and three amateurs.

Wildhorse Resort and Casino

Wildhorse championship golf course was designed by John Steidel. Nestled at the base of mountains and wide open terrain, the course is modeled after a traditional Scottish links-style course with plenty of bunkers and tall grass lurking to make you work a little harder than usual. Each hole is surrounded by spectacular, unobstructed vistas with gentle rolling hills and fairway mounds reflecting the foothills of the Blue Mountains.

Wildhorse Resort and Casino is also home to over 1,200 slot machines plus all your favorite table games including roulette, craps, poker, blackjack, keno and bingo.
