History of the championship:
The Rosauers Open Invitational has been part of the PNW PGA tournament program since 1988. The famous golf tournament was held in only two facilities. Indian Canyon GC and MeadowWood GC. We continue the tradition this year at Indian Canyon GC in Spokane, WA.
We’ve had some great champions since the event started. PGA Professional Corey Prugh from Manito CC (2009, 2011, 2013 & 2015) holds the record for most wins. Derek Bayley set the 54-hole tournament record of 189 (27 under par) at MeadowWood GC in 2016. Bayley also holds the 18-hole tournament record of 59, 13 under par that same year at MeadowWood GC, while PGA Professional Brady Sharp holds the 18-hole record of 60 at Indian Canyon GC from 2017.
The proceeds from the Rosauers Open Invitational will benefit Vanessa Behan, Spokane’s safe haven for children at risk of abuse and neglect. The kindergarten also offers advice, education and placement for parents of young children. The 2019 event raised $ 100,000 for the charity, with over $ 3,000,000 raised throughout the history of the tournament.
Indian Canyon Golf Course:
Indian Canyon was built in 1935 for $ 200,000. H. Chandler Egan, a member of the PNGA Hall of Fame, designed the canyon layout over the tree-lined slope southwest of the Spokane River.
Indian Canyon hosted the Public Links Championships in 1941 and 1984. When Bill Welch was victorious in 1941, he concluded, “After playing Indian Canyon, I never wanted to go back to Texas. I’ve never seen such a beautiful golf course in my entire life … I returned to Texas, but only to pack my bags and move to Spokane. “
This urban track has been rated annually among the “Best Public Courses,” “Best Affordable Courses,” “Best Golf Courses You Can Play,” “Best in State” by Golf Digest and individually rated. Some holes rank with the best holes on each course – public or private – in the region. The high applause of the Indian Canyon is well deserved.
The PNW PGA is excited to return to the Indian Canyon GC and celebrate the 34th Rosauers Open Invitational
