Coming this spring, the 3rd annual State Park Golf Cup is back with more giveaways, an enhanced championship event, and incredible course conditions.

Play one or play them all! Choose from 8 courses throughout the state. Each course has a different event date.
Each golf course will host their own separate tournament and crown a champion team. The winning team of each event will qualify for the Championship Event. Lodging is provided for each winning team.
