2016 Women's PGA to Sahalee
By Torleif Sorenson on 6/16/15

Sahalee Country Club first gained national prominence when the PGA of America held the 1998 PGA Championship there. Next June, the PGA will return — this time, with the LPGA in tow.

Officials announced over the weekend that the 2016 Women's PGA Championship (the former LPGA Championship) will be played at Sahalee from June 9-12. Until then, the only major championship in women's golf to be held in the state of Washington was the inaugural U.S. Women's Open, won by the legendary Patty Berg at Spokane Country Club.

This will be the fourth important tournament or major championship Sahalee CC has held; after Vijay Singh won the 1998 PGA, Craig Parry captured the 2002 WGC-NEC Invitational here. Eight years later, Bernhard Langer captured the U.S. Senior Open.

The club and course are located about 23 miles east of downtown Seattle, amidst thousands — perhaps tens of thousands — of evergreen trees. Naturally, accurate play from the tees and fairways will be paramount; some of the men who played in the '98 PGA complained that if you miss a fairway, you're basically in jail due to the hundreds of trees on each hole.

We'll see what the women think. :)
