Beginning Dec. 30, Lynnwood Municipal will be managed by Premier Golf, which already operates 10 courses in five other Puget Sound municipalities, including Seattle and Everett.

The future of the Lynnwood course was put in jeopardy earlier this year when a state audit showed that the course was borrowing money from the city and was unable to repay it.

A major reason city officials believe Premier can do a better job of marketing the course is because Premier has a loyalty-and-rewards program that the company said has more than 50,000 members.

The contract runs through 2018 and has renewal options. The 18-hole course adjoins the campus of Edmonds Community College.

For the second straight year, the Boeing Classic has won one of four major awards from the Champions Tour.

The Boeing Classic won the Tournament Business Affairs Award for the second straight year. The President’s Award went to the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open in Endicott, N.Y. The other two tournaments honored were the Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach and the Shaw Charity Classic in Calgary.

Women’s basketball

The game time for Saturday’s contest between Eastern Washington and visiting Idaho has been changed to 7 p.m. The game was previously scheduled to tip off at 2 p.m. but was moved due to EWU’s home football playoff game against Jacksonville State at 1 p.m. Fans attending the football game will be admitted to the women’s game for free with their ticket stub.
