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.
Auburn Golf Course Men’s Club
Washington Golf is proud to recognize The Men’s Club at Auburn Golf Course as the Club of the Year for 2021. We have received an outstanding number of nominations for the Auburn Men’s Club since we began issuing this award three years ago. Steve Bosley has served as President of the club for over three years now, and has been on the club’s board for over ten years.
We’ve heard from members and nominations over the last few years about the quality of leadership and organization from the club. Great communication, well-run events, as well as incredible camaraderie amongst the members. They have grown the club to a staggering 914 active members this year – all while putting on weekly and monthly events, and 13 annual majors. Their competitive season culminates with the Vinny Cup – a year-long FedEx Cup-style championship.
In 2021 the club built and launched a brand new website. Members can join, book tee times, view results, sign up for their events, and effectively communicate with club leadership all through this new platform. The club gives back to the golf course with annual work parties to improve Auburn Golf Course and regularly honors passed members, as well as putting together charitable efforts benefiting organizations like The First Tee of South Puget Sound, and the American Cancer Society – donating $2500 to the ACS this year.
Running a club is no easy task – it requires dedicated volunteers and hundreds of hours of work and the Men’s Club at Auburn Golf Course has exemplified this dedication better than any other club in 2021.
