2021 Memorial Cup Men’s Team Match Play Championship

Memorial Cup Match Play Championship

Attention:  This is not your typical buddies trip!

Join us for the 19th Annual Memorial Cup Men’s Team Match Play Championship!  The 2021 tournament will feature 28 amateur men, divided into two teams, who will compete in a Ryder Cup style tournament over three days at the beautiful Barefoot Resort & Golf in North Myrtle Beach, SC.  Regardless of your handicap, if you enjoy competitive golf, contested in accordance with USGA rules, this tournament is for you.  Our playing format and pairings rules ensure that golfers of similar abilities compete against each other.  Following the afternoon rounds, we will gather for dinner and fellowship in the Dye Clubhouse (guest speaker to be determined).  We will also provide time for each team to gather, create their pairings, and will announce the matches for the following day.  As the title above suggests, this is not your typical buddies trip.  This is a highly competitive golf tournament blended with powerful and life-changing fellowship experiences.

Golfers of all handicaps are welcomed and encouraged to participate

Tournament Overview
  • Friday Morning (Round 1): 
    18 hole match on the NORMAN COURSE 
  • Friday Afternoon (Round 2):
      9 hole match on the DYE COURSE 
  • Saturday Morning (Round 3):

Playing format for each round will be determined at a later time.  Most likely, we will play at least one round of fourball (best ball) and one round of foursomes (modified alternate shot).  In 2021, we will likely bring back the popular “Singles matches” on Sunday morning.
