Be a Part of History

The history of the Northwest Open is a significant part of the history of golf in the Pacific Northwest. The early years were dominated by Seattle Golf Club’s Robert Johnstone (who won 6 of the first 10 events) and “Long Jim” Barnes. Barnes, the professional at Tacoma C&GC from 1911 – 1915, won the first two PGA Championships (1916, 1919) in addition to the 1921 U.S. Open and the 1925 British Open! Spokane’s Marvin “Bud” Ward captured six championships over a 22 year span, five as an amateur and his last as a professional. Bud was also a National Amateur champion and may have won a few more but for the lack of championships during WWII.

Last year, amateur Nathan Cogswell of Meridian Valley CC won the Northwest Open Invitational by one stroke over PGA Professional David Phay of Whidbey G&CC. To view past champions of the Northwest Open Invitational, CLICK HERE.
