Jamison Cup goes back to Bedford Springs
By WPGA • September 1, 2021
After a one-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Jamison Cup Inter-Club Finals is back in 2021. Bedford Springs is set to host the championship for the first time since 2015 when the team from Sunnehanna Country Club reigned supreme. Oakmont Country Club, however, has been the team to beat, winning the last three times the event was conducted and 10 of the 31 titles overall.
Any WPGA Member Club can enter a team of four players at the Jamison Cup. The format for the event is 36 holes of stroke play with the low three of four scores counting for each round. For the first time in 2021, the WPGA will allow individual players to enter the Jamison Club Inter-Club Finals to represent their club and play for the individual title and an exemption into the 2022 WPGA Amateur Championship. There will also be additional Player of Year points added for those players that finish at the top individually, and a point bonus has been added for every player that competes on the winning team.
The cost for the team event is evenly distributed amongst the competing WPGA Member Clubs. If you would like to register as an individual, the cost is $175. If your club wants to enter a team or you need more information, email Mac Wolfe, Director of Competitions, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to register is September 22nd. Individuals can register by clicking the link here.
