The 2018 Doak Cup
The 2nd Annual Doak Cup was held at Ballyneal in October.  The home team defeated The Renaissance Club in the final to take home the title.  This competition between the private RGD designed golf clubs will be held at Stonewall in Elverson, PA next year.

"It’s a concept I have wanted to pursue for years -- to build a great par-68 course for America like England has so many of.  Courses like Swinley Forest, Rye, West Sussex, Cavendish, and St. Enodoc are some of my favorite places in golf, and it's a shame there is nothing like them over here."            – Tom Doak
The 2018 Renaissance Cup
The 26th playing of the annual Renaissance Cup took place in June at the Grand Saint Emilionnais GC in St. Emilion, France. 
Our hosts, the Mourgue d'Algue family,  put together an elegant weekend of golf, food, and plenty of delicious wine.  Congratulations to our friends Alfonso Erhardt and Teresa Zayas from Madrid, who beat the hosts 3&2 in the final.
