Coston qualifies for Professional National Championship, Senior PGA Championship and Wins Pacific Northwest Senior Player of the Year.
Jeff Coston has been busy! Busy teaching and playing this “Game of a Lifetime!”
Jeff qualified for the PGA Professional National Championship next April in South Carolina. It’s the “young guys” event. Jeff will be the only grandpa in the field.
PGA Professional Jeff Coston of Semiahmoo G&CC and amateur Kyle Cornett of Inglewood GC won the Pacific Golf & Turf PNW Pro-Am Championship. They posted rounds of 61-65-126, a fantastic -17-under par in the four-ball team competition at Tumble Creek Club and Rope Rider courses at Suncadia Resort.
“Kyle is a tremendous partner, no question! We have worked on his game for over a year. He has made amazing strides and is ready for the next chapter on any level!” Coston stated. “I’m not finished yet myself.”
Jeff Coston on the importance of teaching your students how to win:
It has been said that I’ve played on every tour except the LPGA Tour, including the PGA Tour, Web.com Tour, and the PGA Tour Champions. I’m a grandfather now, and I’m still playing tournament golf. So, I’m sometimes asked why I’ve been more successful as a player in my latter days than I was on the PGA Tour in the mid-80s. The answer is that I have learned from past failures and have a far better mental game than ever before. I have learned how to win. And this is something that must be taught to our golf students every day.
Semiahmoo’s Jeff Coston successfully defended his Oregon Senior Open Title by shooting 68-67-66, edging former Seattle Mariners pitcher (and friend) Erik Hansen. It is Coston’s 6th Oregon Senior Open win!
On August 1, Jeff also celebrated 24 years serving as Director of Instruction at Jeff Coston Golf Academy at Semiahmoo!
“I love Semiahmoo! The members, staff and relationships!” Coston stated.
Jeff played in the 2018 Rosauers Open Invitational in Spokane, Washington where he finished tied for second with rounds of 66-71-66. Jeff won this event three times and was chasing win number four. “It’s fun to still be in the mix with young Pro’s and college players! I’m working hard to stay young from the neck down.” Coston said smiling.

Jeff’s next tournament is the Oregon Senior Open in Pendleton, Oregon. He won last year and is looking to defend his title this year. After that, Jeff will be back at Semiahmoo for the summer where he has had his golf academy for 24 years.

Jeff Coston won the Pacific Northwest Section Senior Players Championship, held at Wine Valley April 17-18th. The “Senior Players” is the first Section Major of the year.
“The wind blew hard and it was cold the first round. The course played difficult.” Coston said.
It was Coston’s 22nd Senior Major win in the Pacific Northwest Section. Jeff has 20 regular Section wins under his belt. He is the all-time leader in both categories.
