Golf came to this community 80 years ago, when the Wenatchee Golf and Country Club was organized and 164 members put up $150 each.

They bought an original 70 acres of land, without water rights, and several members laid out the first nine holes. The site was sagebrush and sand, and the irrigation canal ran right through the property.
