Schedule of Events and Important Spectator Information for Snoqualmie Ridge
Snoqualmie, Wash. (August 11, 2021) – The 16th Annual Boeing Classic benefiting the Benaroya Research Institute, returns to the Puget Sound region next week, welcoming fans back to The Club at Snoqualmie Ridge. The 2020 tournament was cancelled due to the pandemic.
“We are ready and looking forward to welcoming fans back for the 2021 Boeing Classic,” said Tournament Director Brian Flajole. “This tournament has become one of the great traditions for the Puget Sound region. But it is also a significant charitable endeavor for Boeing and Virginia Mason Franciscan Health to impact the community. We are proud and excited to again host the players, fans, supporters and volunteers at The Club at Snoqualmie Ridge.”
The Boeing Classic tournament week tees off Monday with the Seahawks Rumble at the Ridge, followed by the Korean Air Pro-Ams on Wednesday and Thursday. The Boeing Classic begins competition on Friday with the Qatar Opening Ceremony and one of the most unique opening events in the world, the Boeing Jet Flyover.
Single day tickets start at just $20 in advance and $25 at the gate. Public parking which includes shuttle service to and from the course is $10.
The health and safety of everyone attending the Boeing Classic is the main priority of tournament officials. The Boeing Classic operates under and complies with all current State of Washington, King County, and PGA TOUR COVID-19 guidelines and protocols.
For this year’s tournament, there are no capacity limitations or physical distancing requirements outside on the 2,200-acre course.

Where to Watch at Snoqualmie Ridge…
No. 1 Tee - Southern Descent, the 554-yard par five, is where the action starts. This is the perfect place to watch the Boeing flyover on Friday.
No. 9 Green - A short walk from the entry gate of the Boeing Classic is the ninth green. The hole, known as Screaming Eagle, is a 207-yard par three with carry over water and bunkers.
No. 10 Tee - Next to the green at No. 9 is the 10th tee box, also with bleacher seating. This 353-yard uphill layout allows fans to view players as they tee off and take on their tricky approach shots. With double tee times on holes one and 10, this is a great place to catch the action. Named Tito’s on 10, the concession area adjacent to the 10th tee includes food trucks and libations from Tito’s Vodka. Be sure to grab a burger, a Tito’s or a Michelob Ultra.
No. 13 Green to No. 14 Tee - A great place to catch a bevy of action within a short distance is between the 13th green and 14th tee box. The par three, 13th is called Mt. Si-gh and deservedly so with spectacular vistas from all along the 210-yard hole. No. 14, Bear's Canyon, is the signature hole for the Jack Nicklaus designed course.
No. 14 Green to No. 17 Green - This 448-yard, horseshoe-shaped par four drops 80 vertical feet in elevation from tee to green and can be dramatically shortened with a risky tee shot over the canyon. The Canyon Country also features HAPPY HOUR pricing each day from noon till 3:00 at concessions along the 14th hole. A fun spot to enjoy all the action. A short, easy downhill walk to the green at 17 can provide a great place to see late-round drama unfold. The 211-yard par three is a carry over water with a two-tiered green guarded at the front by an immense rock.
No. 18 - The crowd funnels together late in the afternoon all along the dramatic par five. With hospitality and corporate seating on either side of the fairway and natural hillside seating behind the green, the stage is set for spectacular viewing of the finishing hole. The scene that is offered for fans sitting on the hill just below the clubhouse was voted as the PGA TOUR's Champions "Best View from the Clubhouse.”
