VGCSA-MAAGCS Ryder Cup Golf & Reception

VGCSA and MAAGCS Assistants will square off in a Ryder Cup style match. Teams of two assistants from each chapter will compete against each other in captain's choice format. One point will be awarded for the team winning each match, and 1/2 point will be awarded to each team if a match ties. The team that accumulates the most points will be the champions.

Sign Up Early!! The number of official matches will depend on the amount of players that sign up for each chapter. If one chapter has additional players, they will still compete but will not count in the official match. It is first-come, first-serve, so sign up early to secure your spot in the official event. Players may name their partner or one will be assigned. Prizes and reception will follow the golf event.
