The 5th annual PNGA Cup will descend upon Tumble Creek Club located in Roslyn, Wash. on May 5-7, 2010.
The rolling pines and granite peaks of the sunny, eastern slopes of the Cascade Mountains will test golfers from around the Pacific Northwest in this Ryder-cup style contest featuring some of the most notable amateur golfers in the region. Each 12-member team from the British Columbia Golf Association, the Idaho Golf Association, the Oregon Golf Association, and the Washington State Golf Association consists of eight men and four women.
The representation includes four men mid-amateur’s of 25 years of age or older, two men of 40 years or older, two senior men of 55 years or older, two women-mid-amateurs of 25 years or older and two senior women of 50 years or older. The format will be four-ball and foursome matches the first day and single matches on the second and final day. With three matches for each player, the championship will allow each competitor to compete against players from each of the other associations.
In 2009, the BCGA entered the final day with a four point lead over the Oregon Golf Association. In the twelve singles matches, the BCGA won six of the matches and halved two to finish at the top with a total of 17 points. The OGA finished in second place with 11 ½ points while the defending champions, WSGA finished in third with 11 points and the IGA finished in fourth with 8 ½ points.
“We are looking forward to another highly competitive event” said Dr. Jack Lamey, a member of the PNGA Board of Directors and founder of this event. “Bringing the best players from each association around the Northwest has proved to be a very positive experience, it also continues new friendships and camaraderie amongst all the teams” said Lamey.
