Inglewood Golf Club

Sunday, July 26, 2015 | All Events (see all) 6505 Inglewood Road NE
Kenmore, 98028

Our members meetings offer the opportunity to learn about programs and projects of interest taking place in our community and through the auspices of Historic Seattle. These events are held at sites of historic or architectural interest, and a short quarterly business meeting precedes the program.

Please note: Buffet brunch is 10-11 am.

Members Meeting and Tour (free) are 11 am-12 pm.

Enjoy Sunday brunch in the clubhouse dining room overlooking the green—a hot buffet including fresh baked goods made in-house by the chef. Thus fortified, we will hear from club historian Kent Ahlf about the club’s development, including its high points in the golfing sphere. Tours of the building include a glimpse of the attic archives.

Inglewood Golf Club was founded December 12, 1919. Many members were prominent businessmen in the Seattle area. The Club was to be a test for top championship golf in the Pacific Northwest. The first clubhouse, erected in 1921, caught fire and burned. A new red-tiled roof and stucco clubhouse, designed by the Seattle firm of Schack, Young, and Myers, was completed in 11 months and opened in September 1926.

The Seattle Open—the first Professional Tour event in the Pacific Northwest—was played at Inglewood in 1926. A major overhaul of the clubhouse was done in 1962. In 2006, the club largely completed the renovation of the physical plan with the replacement of the 1962 circular Pro Shop. The new building has the same red tile and stucco design as the clubhouse.
