MONACO U.S. Celebrity Golf Cup Association
“Monte Carlo Ryder Cup”
Presented by H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco
Aim of the Association
The aim of the Monaco U.S. Celebrity Golf Cup Association is to organize and protect the brand of the world’s most prestigious amateur celebrity Ryder Cup event to be held every two years in Monaco.
Part of the mission of the 2018 Ryder Cup France is to brand France as a golf destination to U.S. golfers, business leaders and sports enthusiasts.
The opportunity developed in 2016 to engage Monaco as part of the 2018 Ryder Cup France initiatives. The first ever amateur celebrity Ryder Cup event was sanctioned by the 2018 Ryder Cup France Chairman and the Ryder Cup European Development Trust.
On June 19, 2016 the Monaco U.S. Celebrity Golf Cup Presented by H.S.H. Prince Albert II was awarded to Team USA at the Yacht Club of Monaco Awards Gala following the first ever celebrity amateur Ryder Cup Match.
The Monaco U.S. Celebrity Golf Cup supports the development of golf to youth, beginners, seniors and the disabled in Monaco by contributing to the charitable organization the Ryder Cup European Development Trust. In addition, to comply with the future of “green golf” for sustainable environmental protection developing golf courses, contributions for future events will also support the Prince Albert II Foundation.
