2017 Village Cup

International Team edges out Team USA to win cup!
 

The Village Cup, our version of a modified Ryder Cup, was a fun day of camaraderie and competitive golf.  Twenty Men's Club members on each team competed in a 27-hole 
alternate shot, best ball and match play tournament format.  Afterward everyone met in 
the Village Greens to await the results and to finally celebrate the International win.  
It was a close contest and an excellent day of golf.  A big thank you to USA team captain 
Dan Davis and International's victorious captain Fred Yune, for organizing and overseeing 
this fun and successful tournament.

 Annual Derby - 38 Players - 19 Teams

The November Annual Derby - Largest in 2017
 
The Derby was a big success in November with 19 teams teeing off for an exciting time for all.  For the golfers who take part most say it is one of the best Men's Club events.  The format is simple, high handicappers are paired with low ones to form two man teams.  Then it's alternate shot until the ball is holed.  Depending upon the number of teams 
involved, at least one team is eliminated on each hole until the last team standing.
