Boeing Classic returns in August

Updated: July 2, 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic put a hold on all kinds of things in 2020 – and count the Boeing Classic as one of those things. The tournament, part of the PGA Tour Champions, was put on hold for 2020. But now in 2021, the Boeing Classic is back and will features the top players from the PGA Tour Champions.

The tournament is set for Aug. 20-22 at the Golf Club at Snoqualmie Ridge, located just east of Seattle will feature a field of over 80 players.

The Boeing Classic has always been one of the most popular spots on the PGA Tour Champions since its first event back in 2005. In 2019, the last time the tournament was held, Brandt Jobe won the championship at 18 under par.

At this year’s event, there is a little of something for everyone during the tournament week. It all kicks off on Monday Aug. 16 with the Seahawks Rumble at the Ridge, an event featuring local celebrities and former Seahawk players. A youth clinic will be held Tuesday before the Korean Air Pro-Am takes place on Wednesday and Thursday. The tournament kicks off Friday, Aug. 20 – and will get things started with a flyover from a Boeing jet.

Golf Channel will be on hand to broadcast all three rounds of the tournament.

There will be plenty of star power on display at the tournament. Northwest native Fred Couples headlines the field while others like John Daly, Bernhard Langer, Jerry Kelly and others will try and win the first-place check and the Boeing flight jacket, which annually goes to the winner of the tournament.

Tickets are available in a variety of ways. Daily tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the gate. A week-long tournament pass is $40 in advance and $50 at the gate. The Alaska Airlines Canyon Club will return and tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the gate. The ANA Dreamliner Lounge which sits on the 18th hole has tickets for $350.
