The Washington State Golf Association announces the start of the 6th Annual Washington State Parent-Child Championship, to be held this year on the Cascade course at Gold Mountain Golf Club in Bremerton, Wash. The 18-hole championship, which will consist of both gross and net competitions, will be held Friday, July 18.
The championship will be played in a Chapman Stroke Play format, with two players playing as partners, each playing from the teeing ground and each player playing his/her partner’s ball for the second shot. After the second shot, including par-3 holes, partners select the ball with which they wish to score and then play that ball alternately to complete the hole.
The parent’s relationship with the child must be natural, adopted or stepchild. Partners may have more than one generation between them (i.e. grandfather-granddaughter).

Back to defend their title is the team of Jason and Mark Aspelund of Federal Way and Olympia, Wash. Past champions Ruben and Ravae Canas (2011) of Kent, Wash. and Richard and Brandon Cardwell (2009) of Tacoma are also in the field.
Owned by the city of Bremerton and managed by Columbia Hospitality, Gold Mountain has two championship golf courses, the other being the Olympic course.
