About the USGC
The United States Golf Challenge™ is in its 4th 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 Local Qualifier. Over 100 Local Qualifiers will be conducted throughout the U.S. beginning in February, 2018. By finishing in the top 30% of their Local Qualifier, teams earn their way into the USGC King’s Cup National Qualifier™.
The winning teams in each flight at the USGC King’s Cup National Qualifier will have earned their way onto Team USA 2019.
