Your Section Championship & Qualifier for the National PGA Championship

Additionally, the low 20 scores at the 2022 PGA Professional Championship presented by Cadillac, Club Car and Rolex will earn a place in the 104th PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club, Tulsa, Oklahoma in May 2022.

Eligibility

The PNW PGA Professional Championship presented by Cadillac, Club Car and Rolex is only open to PGA Members who are employed and classified in one of the eligible membership classifications (see PDF) as of September 8 including LMA and LMMA.

Note: Grooves and Punch Mark Specifications

In making a stroke, the player must use clubs that conform to the groove and punch mark specifications in the Equipment Rules that took effect on 1 January 2010. Ping Eye 2 irons manufactured before 31 March 1990 with a groove spacing to groove width ratio of 2.3 to 1 are allowed for play under Rules of Golf, even when this Local Rule is in effect (See Model Local Rule G-2 in Committee Procedures).

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 in a four-hole playoff against Brady Sharp of Wine Valley GC and Bo Baker of The Creek at Qualchan.

Arrowhead Golf Club

Situated on 135 verdant acres in the heart of the Willamette Valley, Arrowhead Golf Club remains the hidden jewel of Clackamas County. Guarded by old-growth forest, the 18-hole championship golf course meanders across lush meadows and rolling hills, crossing paths with the pristine Molalla River and Wrights Creek before beginning its final approach back to the clubhouse. Despite its picturesque setting, the course is designed to challenge players of all abilities. Its demanding layout and manicured surfaces result in a dynamic playing experience.

Arrowhead previously hosted the 2020 Oregon Open Invitational, 2019 PNW Assistant PGA Championship and 2019 Hudson Cup matches, as well as the PNW Senior PGA Championship in 2006, 2012 and 2018.
