History of the Championship

The Washington Open Invitational dates back to 1922. In that year, young Al Espinosa captured the crown at Yakima CC. Some big names have won this event over the years including the Zimmerman brothers, Al and Emery, along with Chuck Congdon, Al Mengert, Senior Tour Player Rick Acton and PGA Tour Player Fred Couples. Don Bies won as a club pro in 1959 and again in 1980 and 1987 after he retired from the PGA tour.

This year, Jeff Coston claimed his sixth Washington Open Invitational title. Adding to his wins in 1996, 1999, 2001, 2010 and 2016, he now owns the record for the most Washington Open Championships of all time.  Al Mengert holds the record for the most consecutive wins (1963, 1964, and 1965). The current tournament record is held by PGA Professional Tim Feenstra of Broadmoor GC (2011) and PGA Member Jeff Gove (2012).
