Proud home to the University of Washington's Men's and Women's golf teams, Washington National Golf Club is one of the Pacific Northwest’s true gems. Designed by award-winning architect John Fought, the 18-hole championship golf course features an exceptional array of contrasting aesthetics. Rugged transitional areas dotted with native fescue dissect lush, emerald fairways, and spectacular, white-sand bunkers cradle impeccably maintained greens.

Ken Wells, 

Director of Business Development for Washington Hospitality 

"This tournament was a great place to explore future workforce development. Great for managers that are looking for employment pipelines right at home."

“The 2016 Golf FORE! Education Tournament instantly put me together with four supporters of our industry.

It only took a few holes before we started to talk about how their company and our association could work together to provide cost savings for our members. Our ideas turned into one of the association’s biggest programs. It all started over a golf game.“
