The Washington Golf Club of the Year Award was established in 2019. The award recognizes the membership of a Washington Golf Member Club for outstanding contributions to its community, the game of golf or the Association.
Port Gardner Senior Men’s Club
The 2022 Washington Golf Club of the Year Award winner is the Port Gardner Senior Men’s Club. The club plays at Everett’s Legion Memorial Golf Course. We are proud to recognize the club after receiving an outpouring nominations from its members. They tell us that the club leadership is outstanding, the communication is clear and consistent, and that the leaders of the club are friendly, engaging, and welcoming.
Competitively, the club hosts 25 regular Monday events played from two sets of tees that draw over 150 players from their 300-member club. They also host a match-play event and collaborate with the Olympic View Men’s Club at fellow Everett course Walter Hall GC to host an annual Ryder Cup-style season finale.
Every year the club makes a contribution to junior golf via the Joe Richer Junior Golf Club and The First Tee.
Club President and WA Golf Club Representative Gary Ordway was highly touted in this year’s nominations. Members note that he is one of the friendliest, most reliable people they know. He always answers the phone and makes sure that he knows everyone in the club.
Congratulations to the Port Gardner Senior Men’s Club on the well-deserved recognition!
