Kennedy Knox of Rainier Golf and Country Club defeated Kim Sheck of Sahalee in the final round of the Seattle Women’s Golf Association City Championship Thursday.

Knox won her match on the 28th hole of the 36-hole championship finals.

Knox who recently also won the 28th Washington Women’s Amateur championship has committed to play for the women’s golf team at the University of Washington in the fall.

Ranging in age from 18 to 80+, 96 golfers from 14 clubs participated in the four-day tournament at Broadmoor Golf Club.

The event adopted the theme “La Vie est Belle,” which means Life is Beautiful in French, and the hosting Broadmoor golf professionals, staff and volunteers all contributed to the atmosphere by wearing red berets and red scarfs.   

The Seattle Women’s Golf Association is comprised of 14 clubs from around the Seattle area.

In existence since 1927, the organization supports competitive amateur women’s golf by hosting team competitions, individual competitions and an annual city championship for member clubs.   

In 2022, the SWGA Championship is scheduled to be held at Rainier Golf and Country Club.
