NWFPA Processor and Supplier Members and their guests have the opportunity to play at the home of the LPGA Safeway Classic. This year the best ball tournament and awards dinner will be back at the fabulous Columbia Edgewater Country Club.
The Autumn Assembly Golf Tournament is one of the premier tournaments in the Portland metro area. The day’s activities provide an excellent opportunity to really get to know fellow members and other food processing industry professionals. The tournament will be a four person team best ball competition, providing opportunities for all levels of golfers to contribute and enjoy the round.
Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams and for men’s and women’s longest drive and KP holes. Putting and chipping contests will be held prior to the start of the golf tournament with prizes to be awarded during the Awards Dinner that evening.
The tournament has sold out the last few years so be sure to register early. Many companies buy a foursome and invite their key clients.
Participants will meet either at Columbia Edgewater Country Club or Beacon Rock (milepost 35 on Washington State Highway 14). Boats will head to one of the region’s prime fishing areas on the Columbia River near Bonneville Lock and Dam so anglers have an excellent shot at catching a prize-winning salmon or sturgeon. The group will meet at Beacon Rock State Park or carpool from the Columbia River Golf Club, site of the awards dinner that evening.
Your fishing adventure will include fishing guide, bait, tackle and all other equipment needed to fish plus a light breakfast, coffee, lunch and plenty of water, soda and coffee on the boats. NWFPA goodie bags will be delivered to your boat and prizes will be awarded at the awards dinner that evening.
Don’t miss the awards dinner at the finish of the golf tournament. An early reception will allow fishermen and golfers who are the first in to begin the networking and speculation about award winners. The club house at Columbia Edgewater is the perfect setting for the reception and well attended dinner featuring a delectable Pacific Northwest menu, the awarding of golf and angler awards and loads of door prizes valued at over $10,000.
These events attract a high level of food processing industry executives and decision-makers. Opportunities include overall tournament sponsorship, related competitions, hole sponsors, goodie bags, door prizes, fishing derby, reception and awards dinner sponsorships. Tawnia Linde can develop a customized sponsorship package to increase the visibility of your organization and meet your marketing objectives.

Online registration will open in July. Golf is limited to the first 144 players and the tournament has sold out the last four years, so be sure to register early. Many companies buy a foursome and invite their key clients. For more information call 503.327.2200.
CECC features 6,702 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par 71. The course rating is 72.9 and it has a slope rating of 131 on bluegrass. Designed by A. Vernon Macan, ASGCA, the course opened in 1925.
Macan, an Irish immigrant to British Columbia, became the most successful golf architect throughout the Pacific Northwest during the so-called Golden Age of golf design. The Club was founded by men of vision and the course laid out by a skillful and talented architect-player. NWFPA is fortunate to book one of the limited number of dates available at CECC. For additional course information see the Columbia Edgewater website.
