The Western Intercollegiate is rich in history with the former champions list including such notable players as Johnny Miller, Peter Jacobsen, Mark O’Meara, Duffy Waldorf, Bobby Clampett, and Patrick Rodgers, as well as Spartan alums Arron Oberholser, John Lotz, Mark Lye, and Golf Legend Ken Venturi.

The WI Championship is open to the public, admission is free, and golf enthusiasts are welcome to join the walking gallery. Free parking is available on site, on a first-come, first-serve basis.
