Ridge to host first

pro golf tournament

The 74th playing of the BMW Washington Open, featuring

the Merrill Lynch Pro-Am, will be held at the new Tournament

Players Course (TPC) at Snoqualmie Ridge in May.

The BMW Washington Open will mark the first professional

event at the Jack Nicklaus-designed course. The tournament is

scheduled for Friday, May 19, through Wednesday, May 24.

The BMW Washington Open is the oldest professional

golfing tournament in the state, dating back to the Yakima Country Club in 1922.

Among the many former champions are Fred Couples,

Jim Strickland and Brian Mogg.

"We were excited," said TPC Snoqualmie Ridge Director of

Golf Lindsay Taft. "They came to us last year and said they wanted to

come out here. We thought it would be a great introduction to the

tournament scene.

"Since we're new, it will be a great opportunity to showcase

the club and the golf course. With all of the statewide PGA pros and

the amateurs alike, it will be five or six days of fun. People will be able

to see what we're all about."

For further information on the event, contact the Pacific

Northwest PGA office at (800) 688-4653.
