VIVA LAS VEGAS! U.S. CUP RETURNS TO FAVORITE VENUE WITH PRO-AM FORMAT
After a one-year absence, the United States Golf Teachers Cup returns! Las Vegas, Nevada, America’s capital city of action and fun, will once again host the national championship event of the United States Golf Teachers Federation.
The 25th edition of this 36-hole annual event will take place Monday and Tuesday, October 18-19, at Revere Golf Club, and is open to all WGTF Certified and Master Golf Teaching Professionals. The event will also feature a concurrent pro-am, where USGTF professionals will partner with an amateur of their choosing. (Note: It is not necessary to bring an amateur partner in order to compete.)
For the pro-am portion, each amateur will be allotted 85% of his or her course handicap, and the better score of either the amateur’s net score or the pro’s scratch score will count as the team score for that hole. Each amateur must have an established USGA handicap on the GHIN network, or if from outside the U.S., the handicap must be established through that country’s official handicap system. Any amateur without an official handicap will be assigned a handicap index of 0.0.
Practice rounds are available on Monday thru Sunday, October 11-17, for $85 before noon and $65 after noon. Tee times at these rates can be booked online or by calling (877) 273-8373 or (702) 259-4653, option #5.
