Close but No Cigar for Broadmoor Assistant Pro

Broadmoor GolfTim Feenstra, an assistant pro at Seattle’s Broadmoor Golf Club was co-leading heading into the last round and leading by one stroke on the final hole of the 24th annual Rosauers Open Invitation golf tournament but came in second to Corey Prugh.  Feenstra bogeyed the 18th hole to lose by two strokes despite shooting a 5-under 66 in the last round.  The tournament was last weekend in Spokane at Indian Canyon Golf Course.

Despite the close loss, Feenstra had a great tournament and represented Broadmoor well.

Broadmoor Midcentury Modern Featured in Times

BroadmoorA Broadmoor midcentury modern home which was influenced by Canlis and its architect Roland Terry was recently updated and featured in the Seattle Times.  The home which was built in 1962 was transformed by the owners with the help of architect Colin Brandt and Dyna Contracting.  Click the link to read more about the 7 month remodel and to see pictures taken after the work was complete.

Broadmoor Golf Course Record

Broadmoor GolfCame across this recent article about pro golfer Paul Casey who is trying to get back on track at Vancouver’s Canadian Open.  But the article got my attention because it talked about Casey’s success when he won 3 straight Pac Ten titles when he was attending Arizona State.  His final year in 1999, he won his third and final Pac Ten title when he shot ten-under 60 in his final round at Broadmoor Golf Club.  A course record that still stands.
