History of the Championship

This championship dates to 1905 when sheep mowed the fairways at Waverley CC. George Smith, a Scot from Oakland, CA, won the Oregon Open’s inaugural championship, including a course record 74.  Little did he know that some of golf’s most prestigious names were to follow in his footsteps such as Tommy Armour, Horton Smith, Chuck Congdon, Bob Duden, Bill Eggers, Jerry Mowlds, Pat Fitzsimons, Rick Acton, Peter Jacobsen, Jeff Coston, and Mike Davis.  And only three men have won the title three or more times: Bill Porter (3), Rick Acton (4), and Bob Duden (8).  The tournament scoring record is held by Brian Nosler at 198, set in 2009 at Brasada Canyons.
