The Mason Cup


Canon Claycomb of Bowling Green, Kentucky, hosts the inaugural Mason Cup at The Club at Olde Stone August 24 - 26, 2018.

The Mason Cup, part of the AJGA’s State Cup Series, is a two-day Ryder Cup-style tournament held at The Club at Olde Stone, featuring 22 participants from around the country. Participants will be divided into two teams in a head-to-head competition with each junior responsible for raising at least $1,000. The State Cup Series, a series of junior-led fundraising tournaments, is a branch of the AJGA’s Leadership Links program, which helps develop young men and women by teaching charitable giving skills and service-oriented practices at an early age. This program gives juniors all the tools necessary to donate their time, talent and resources to local charities and the ACE Grant.
