13th Annual Friendship Cup Tournament Registration

Kiawah Island Golf Resort
February 28-March 3, 2019

Player Information

Please complete a registration form for EACH player.  A team consists of 2 men.
May we share your information (address, phone and email) with other players via a list in the welcome packet?  This has been a request of past attendees to keep in touch with new friends after the weekend.  We WILL NOT share your information outside of the tournament. *

Handicap & Club Information


Each player must have a valid, verifiable USGA handicap to participate in the net competition. The handicap used for the 2019 Friendship Cup will be based on the February 15, 2019 revision. Any players without a verifiable USGA handicap on February 15 WILL PLAY AS SCRATCH.           

The committee reserves the right to adjust course handicaps prior to the start of the event and/or during the event. This adjustment may be based on past year’s Friendship Cup performance combined with handicap posting history and the USGA table of exceptional tournament score probability as well as other factors. Any player with an adjusted handicap will be notified by the committee and has the right to appeal to the committee. 


Paper scorecards to record tournament scores will be the officail score card.  Each team will be responsible for keeping their fellow competitors scores and verifying accuracy.  Each team will be requested to protect the field by ensuring that tournament rules are followed as noted on the official rules sheet to each course (i.e.; no gimmes, playing the ball as it lies, etc.).   


Pairings will be made at the discretion of the tournament committee. 

Dress Code

We encourage team uniforms as long as they conform to the resort's standard requirements and remain tasteful. Denim of any kind, shorts more than 5” above the knee, bathing suits and athletic style shorts, and shirts without sleeves and collars are considered unacceptable.
