The St George's Cup

International Invitational Club Tournament

Monday 15th & Tuesday 16th July 2024

New friendships forged and old ones re-kindled.  So much more than just a golf tournament.

2024 EVENT UPDATE

A fabulous few days again, with Baltimore Country Club winning the third running of the St George's Cup, closely followed by Shoal Creek in second place, with Beaverbrook third.  The golf, whilst an important ingredient, is always enhanced by the conviviality and respect demonstrated by all participants.

The victors.  Tim Codd, Mike Davey, Michael Burchell & David Dardis.
