HIGHLANDER CUP 2020

This is one of the most popular events at Duntroon Highlands. On this Sunday Members and Guests of Members will fight it out for bragging rights to the title. Returning players will once again play for the team they were on last year and new players will be assigned a team that will become their team for years to come. If you don’t recall, last year’s matches ended in a tie, 27 to 27 meaning team Jean retained the cup. That means the head to head matches are now tied at 3 apiece. This event has grown from 44 participants in 2014 to 72 in 2019. Don’t miss out on making history in 2020.

*Guests of Members must have a Golf Handicap is order to participate
