Thank you, Mr. Palmer


“Thanks so much sharing both videos from the 2019 King’s Cup here at Arnold Palmer’s Bay Hill Club & Lodge. I watched both videos and thoroughly enjoyed them both.

I know Mr. Palmer would have been so pleased, and honored, having this great group of golfers battling for the King’s Cup, right here at his home.

Wishing you, and all those involved with the event, all the very best, and good luck for next year’s competition in Ireland!!”

With kind regards,
Roy Saunders • Vice President

About the USGC

The United States Golf Challenge™ is in its 7th season of identifying the best 2 person amateur teams in the country. 8 teams in 4 flights, in two age divisions, represent Team USA in a Ryder Cup® style competition with their Irish counterparts in the International King’s Cup™.

The King’s Cup™ is played in honor of golf’s greatest ambassador – Mr. Arnold Palmer, whose Honesty, Integrity, Sportsmanship and Commitment to Excellence represent the ideals for which the game of golf is known.

The road to the King’s Cup begins with a National Qualifier.  National Qualifiers will be conducted throughout the U.S. beginning in February 2021. By finishing in the top 30% of their National Qualifier, teams earn their way into the USGC King’s Cup National Championship™.
