Canada US Challenge Cup

  • PDF

 

On Wednesday January 23rd at the Coronado Golf and Beach Resort, 84 local Canadians and Americans met to face off in the 6th Annual Canada / US Challenge Cup.  Started in 2007, with only 29 golfers, this tournament was originally held on July 2nd or 3rd between Canada Day on July 1st and the American 4th of July.  The “Just-for-Fun Golf Tournament” gave the Expats, in Panama’s Pacific Beach Communities, an opportunity to get together to play golf and meet new people.  It has evolved into, what is now, the much anticipated Canada /US golf challenge. The winning team gives one country bragging rights for a year.

The format has been adapted to accommodate all levels of golfers.  It is a combination of the Texas and Florida Scrambles, each player must use their drive at least 4 times during the 18 holes (Texas Scramble) and the team may not select the same golfer's shot twice in a row until reaching the green (Florida Scramble). Once on the green, this restriction no longer applies.  Each team must have at least on woman golfer and we try to have at least 3 Canadian or US members on each team.

This year’s tournament had 84 golfers, with a total of 96 people attending the lunch and awards ceremony. The Canadian Teams outnumbered the US Teams 4 to 1 - which may go to show that it is so cold in Canada in right now that many Canadians come to Panama to escape the frozen North.

This year’s 2013 Canada / US Challenge Cup “Low Net” was won by Team Canada consisting of Donna Anderson, Dwight Anderson, Sue Fehr and Gerry Fehr.  “Low Gross” was won by Team USA consisting of Marlene Rokosh, Barry Kelley, Leo Daniel Gutierrez and David Strong. Ladies Longest Drives - Cecelia Sloan; Men’s Longest Drive - Tony Giordano; Ladies KP - Leslie McCreary; Men’s KP - Bob Holman.

 

The tournament organizer would like to acknowledge and give a special “mucho gracias” to Sr. Lupe Vasquez - Coronado’s Director of Golf, Sra. Leonor Gutierrez - Food & Beverage Manager, Coronado Golf and Beach Club, and Duran Golf, Panama. Their contributions and assistance were vital in making this year’s tournament a great success.
