  • Senior amateur North America Friendship Cup to take place June 25 – 28, 2019

Registration is now open for the 2019 North America Friendship Cup, scheduled for June 25 – 28, 2019, at Niagara Parks’ Legends on the Niagara golf complex in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.

This 54-hole scratch event for senior male amateurs will be played over Legends’ Ussher’s Creek course designed by celebrated Canadian architect Thomas McBroom. In addition to the individual stroke play tournament, competitors from the United States and Canada will have the opportunity to represent their countries and contribute to the Friendship Cup team competition.

Honorary captains for the inaugural Friendship Cup are Dave King, representing the United States and Fred Silver, representing Canada. In addition to their amateur golf achievements and numerous coveted awards, Dave King hosts three marquee senior events in the U.S., while Fred Silver is the longstanding host and tournament director for the prestigious Senior Porter Cup in Niagara Falls, New York.

Retired NHL goaltender Don Edwards is behind the start-up of the Friendship Cup and will serve as the honorary host for the event. “Born and raised just minutes from the Niagara region, this is a truly spectacular golf destination complimented by the breathtaking natural beauty of Niagara Falls,” stated Edwards. “As a senior competitor, I know the quality of golf played at this level. Bringing together some of the best senior golfers from Canada and the United Sates will not only produce a great individual contest, but also an exciting team competition where each day the competitors will have the opportunity to represent their country.”
