11th Annual Friendship Cup

Friendship Cup

"Golf's Fifth Major"
March 9 - 12, 2017

Now in its 11th year, a two-man tournament for male amateur players. The Friendship Cup is contested on the world famous Ocean Course, site of the 2012 and 2021 PGA Championship, and the Tom Fazio designed Osprey Point Golf Course.

It's year ten so expect big things! Thursday night begins with a culinary experience dinner honoring our past champions and the 2015 Friendship Cup and Pub Cup champions.

We will split the field due to the number of teams, so half with play Osprey Point on Friday and the others will play The Ocean Course. Shotgun start and team net best ball format.

Friday night will be a relaxing and very casual Lowcountry oyster roast and BBQ at Mingo Point overlooking the Kiawah River. Enjoy fantastic food and music while making new "friends" and reconnecting with old ones.

The tournament continues Saturday as teams play round two on their respective courses. We will celebrate together in the Grand Oaks Ballroom on Saturday night and award the winning teams. The top ten net teams will win fantastic trips. Prizes will also be awarded to the top Gross Team, Gross Individual, Net Individual and top Senior Division net team. The nightly hospitality suite and many more contests and prizes keep the weekend very exciting!
