Play The Home Course

The Home Course was designed by golf course architect Mike Asmundson of Scottsdale, Arizona and opened on June 29, 2007. It is a walkable layout with panoramic views of Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains, and Mount Rainier present throughout the golf course. The Home Course was selected by the United States Golf Association as the assisting course for the 2010 U.S. Amateur Championship. It is truly a great championship golf course at the home of golf in the Pacific Northwest, hosting the 2018 PNW PGA Assistant Professional Championship and 2015 PNW PGA Senior Professional Championship.

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 the Section’s first president, 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!  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. The 54-hole tournament record of 199 was set by PGA Professional Derek Barron in 2015 at Wine Valley GC and tied in 2016 by PGA Professional Brian Thornton.
