History of the Championship

The PNW PGA Senior Professional Championship was established in 1952 and remains the premiere event for PGA Professionals aged 50 and older. Some can remember all the way back in 1965 when Harry Umbinetti was the top money winner of the event taking home a whopping $250 dollars. Back then, the championship was held at the Yakima Elks’ Golf and Country Club with only 21 professionals battling it out for the mere sum of $920 dollars. Bob Duden won the championship seven times during the 70’s and 80’s. Jeff Coston holds the record for most wins (nine).
