Meridian Valley Country Club

Meridian Valley Country Club officially opened on July 1, 1967 with 9 of the 18 holes ready for play. The second nine holes and clubhouse opened to equally grand fanfare in May 1968. This exceptional 18-hole layout was designed by Ted Robinson, one of the nation’s leading golf course architects, who chose the site based on the stunning views the surrounding area provided.

This will be Meridian Valley CC’s seventeenth time hosting the Washington Open Invitational – hosting in 1972, 1976, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2009, 2013-2023.  They also hosted the SAFECO Classic from 1982 through 1999. MVCC has grown into one of the Northwest’s most respected golf courses to the credit of the founding members who successfully achieved their goal to develop a first-class golf club.

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.

There have been some amazing champions since the event started.  In 2021, Jeff Coston claimed his sixth Muckleshoot Casino Resort Washington Open Invitational title adding to his wins in 96, 99, 2001, 2010, and 2016 officially becoming the oldest and winningest PGA Professional in the Washington Open era with his six Championships spanning four decades. Chuck Congdon held the record for the most wins (39, 47, 50, 52, and 62) while Al Mengert holds the record for the most consecutive wins (63, 64, and 65).  The current tournament record is held by PGA Professional Tim Feenstra of Broadmoor GC (2011) and PGA Member Jeff Gove (2012).
