Worth It!

“The PPC is our best event of the year. It offers us an opportunity to qualify for the National Championship. This will be my third time at Canyon River and it is one of my favorite courses to play,” – Tyler Sweet, PGA

Open only to PNW PGA members, this championship confers the title of “The Pacific Northwest Section Champion.” In addition to the winner, 6 players will advance to the 2021 PGA Professional Championship presented by Club Car and OMEGA.

We are also playing for a large purse. We’ve averaged well over $70,000 the last five years and with your participation we expect this year to easily top that mark.

This is a fun event for all, with fantastic competition and comradery with your fellow PNW PGA members.

The Return to Canyon River GC

Canyon River Golf Club, designed by the internationally acclaimed firm of Schmidt Curley and opened in 2006, meanders through towering pines and native grasslands.  Numerous lakes and riparian marshes located throughout the property come into play on 7 seven holes.  The course was rated #9 new in the nation in 2007, #1 in Montana in 2008 and was named by Golf Digest as one of the top ten new public courses to play in 2008.

History of the Championship

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, Corey Prugh of Community Colleges of Spokane won the championship at Indian Summer G&CC. This was Prugh’s second PNW PGA Championship title, having previously won this event in 2016.
