Tournament Director Jim Young

​Term:  April 1, 2019 - March 31, 2021

Gary is a Tacoma native where he played on his junior high school golf team before graduating from Franklin Pierce High School in 1972. After about a 30 year hiatus Gary began playing golf again and joined the Allenmore Men’s club in 2005.  Retiring from Milgard Windows in 2014 after a 38 year career, golf has become his primary passion second only to his time spent being a porn star.

“After having played in several of the Men’s Club tournaments and getting to know some of the great guys who are members I’m excited to become more involved in the clubs activities. We have a jewel of a golf course smack dab in the middle of Tacoma which I think gives us a real opportunity to grow the membership of our club”.

Bob has been a member of Allenmore since 2000.  He retired in July 2018 from Boeing after 38 years and plans to become more involved with the golf course and Elks.  He plays in all the tournaments and normally plays in them twice or more.  He lives in Kent close to Meridian Valley Golf Course but believes Allenmore is by far the best course around and the golfers are great.  You will see Bob wearing a lot of Michigan Wolverine gear since that is the only true college and has the best sports program ever, well this is his opinion.  Go Blue.

He enjoys golf more than any other hobby and one day would like to meet Phil Mickelson since he and Phil both are right handed but golf left handed.  Now that he is retired, and for long as he can do it, he will be golfing every day so if anyone wants to join him on the weekdays just send him an email.

Jim has been a member at Allenmore Golf Course since 1981.  Always the optimistic one on the first tee, Jim enjoys coordinating and organizing competitions.

After helping out in a few Member-Guest Tournaments, Jim ran for our Tournament Director position and was elected in 2011.  There are always ongoing challenges facing our golf course and facilities, now that most of the upgrades to the course, pro shop, restaurant, etc... are complete, Jim is excited about having one of the best golf courses and facilities in the area.

Jim says: "I believe we can make this Men's Club a place where the majority of area golfers want to belong.  I think it is evident in the growing numbers in our club over the past 8 years.  I am always open to adding new events and features to our tournament schedule that benefits all Men's Club Members.  The Elks Allenmore leadership, along with the new head golf professional and his staff, have really stepped up and shown that they want to form a collaborative effort with us to grow and improve our golf course and Men's Club membership, and I look forward to what the future holds."

Jim Shin (aka: Bones) started golfing in the 80's when his friend coaxed him into playing a round at Meadow Park.  Never having swung a club before, his first round of golf was not good, however it did hook him into the game because he new he could get better.   He grew up in Lakewood where his family settled when he was 5.  He retired from the City of Tacoma in 2010 and is enjoying the retired life.  He is an on call employee for the pro shop and a long-time men's club member and past president.

Jake has been a member of Allenmore since 2013.  He spent 4 years working in the Proshop and currently works for Johnstone Supply as a delivery truck driver.  Jake grew up and learned the game of golf at Allenmore and considers it his home away from home. He believes we have have one of the best mens clubs around and is excited to see it continue to grow. "Seeing more and more people join the club to help carry on its legacy is amazing.  This truly is an astonishing and welcoming club."

Jake is involved regularly with competitive golf from playing in high school to playing in major amateur state championships.  He is familiar with the rules of golf and the GHIN system. He hopes to be a valuable asset to this team and to help promote the club not only to new members, but to the younger crowd of local golfers as well.
