Boeing Classic to keep swinging at the Ridge
April 23, 2014
The Boeing Classic Golf Tournament and TPC Snoqualmie Ridge have reached agreement to keep the Champions Tour stop at the Jack Nicklaus-designed course at least through 2016. The 10th annual tournament will be played Aug. 22-24.
The tournament has developed into one of the most popular and lauded stops on the Champions Tour. It has won one of the Tour’s major awards each of the past four years.
The tournament has one of the most unusual starts in all sports — a low-altitude flyover by a Boeing plane. The winner is presented with a bomber jacket in an 18th-green ceremony. Last year, the jacket was won by John Riegger and it was his first win on the Champions Tour.
Arcis Equity, of Dallas, bought the clubhouse and course last year.
