Halloween Around Broadmoor

Broadmoor HalloweenAs most Broadmoor residents know there is little reason to go beyond the gates to have fun trick or treating.  Most Broadmoor residents take the Halloween holiday seriously and the Broadmoor kids benefit from it.  But if you are thinking about venturing out there are a couple local options to consider.  Saturday there is a Halloween Carnival at St. Therese in Madrona, on Sunday there is a Halloween costume contest and trick or treating in the Madrona Business District, and Monday there is either trick or treating in the Madison Park Business District or if you want to head out the back gate then U Village is also having trick or treating.

Feenstra of Broadmoor Golf Club Wins Pacific Northwest PGA Pro Championship

Broadmoor GolfI meant to congratulate Tim Feenstra of Broadmoor Golf Club over a week ago, but better late than never.  Feenstra won the Pacific Northwest PGA Professional Championship in Salem Oregon recently in a one hole playoff.  Feenstra and Scott Erdmann (Lake Oswego CC) were tied at 10-under 206 after 54 holes, but Feenstra prevailed after an extra hole.  Feenstra has been playing quality golf this year, for example he finished second Rosauers Open Invitation golf tournament earlier this summer.

The top 10 finishers, including several golfers from the greater Seattle area, qualified for the PGA Professional National Championship next June in Seaside, California.

Seattle Golfer Honored in Chattanooga

Broadmoor Golf ClubA native of Montana and current resident of Seattle, Edean Ihlanfedlt will be one of eight former USGA Seniors Women’s Amateur Champions attending the players’ dinner Thursday at the Chattanooga (Tennessee) Golf and Country Club.  Click the link to read the Tennessee sport page article about Ihlanfedlt’s golf career.  The article spans from 1944 when Ihlanfedlt won her first of 6 straight Montana state championships at the age of 14 as well as her five Seattle City Women’s titles and her pivotal role in bringing two major women’s events to Seattle’s Broadmoor Golf Club: the U.S. Women’s Amateur in 1974 and the U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur in 1997.

A great article about a remarkable Seattle golfer who brought big time golf tournaments to Broadmoor.

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 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.
