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 7:10 a.m. 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). There is no age limit for competing.

Last year’s Parent-Child Championship, held at High Cedars Golf Club in Orting, Wash., saw the father-son team of Mark and Jason Aspelund of Federal Way, Wash. win their second title in the championship, having also won in 2013.

Established in 1916, Yakima Country Club is located three miles east of downtown Yakima in Terrace Heights. It overlooks the Yakima Valley, offering astounding views from the clubhouse and several amenities including championship golf, two golf practice facilities, state of the art tennis, pool, and first class dining. The par-72 championship 18-hole golf course showcases exceptional rolling greens ranging in size from 2,000 to 5,000-square feet, and the fairways are surrounded by apple orchards, ponds and century-old trees.
