The 9th Annual Washington State Parent-Child Championship is taking place at High Cedars Golf Club in Orting, Wash. on Friday, July 21, and is being conducted by the Washington State Golf Association.
The 18-hole championship will have gross and net champions and 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 or 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 played that ball alternately to complete the hole.
Tee times begin at 7:00 am off the first and 10th tees. For a complete list of pairings and tee times, and to follow along with live scoring, visit www.thewsga.org. For more information about the championship, including a list of past champions, click here.
The parent’s relationship with the child must be natural, adopted or stepchild. Partners could have more than one generation between them (i.e. grandfather-granddaughter).
Last year’s Parent-Child Championship, held at Riverbend Golf Complex in Kent, Wash., saw the father-son team of Craig and Cody Roth of Bellingham, Wash. win their second title in the championship, having also won in 2012.
Past champions in this year’s field include the father-son team of Brandon and Richard Cardwell (2009) and the father-son team of Jason and Mark Aspelund (2013).
Built in 1971 and located in the Orting Valley of the Pacific Northwest, High Cedars Golf Club consists of two courses, the 18-hole championship course and the executive 9-hole course. Depending on each golfer’s skill level and time flexibility, the two differing courses provide a challenging, enjoyable, and always rewarding experience of golf.
