About the 2016 Alliance Golf Cup
Golf is a language spoke the world over. Across oceans, time zones, cultures and continents, it unites us. In this spirit, H4Events USA presents the 3rd annual Alliance Golf Cup, to be competed Oct. 27-29, 2016, at Jonathan’s Landing Golf Club, in Jupiter, Fla. It will feature two days of Presidents Cup-style competition between the international team and the U.S. team, vying for the Alliance Golf Cup trophy. Fine cuisine and a tournament closing party will be part of the experience.
