The 9th Annual Bear Cup will be played this year at the Black Rock Country Club in Hingham, MA, Tuesday, May 26, 2015.  This will be a joint meeting with the GCSA of Cape Cod.  The Cape Association is this year's host.

This tournament was started in 2007 in memory of Gary Luccini "The Bear" who passed away in 2001.  Gary was the long time superintendent at Franklin Country Club and a friend to many.  Gary's son, Mike, is the current President of the GCSA of New England and Superintendent of Franklin Country Club.  His other son, Brian, was an active Superintendent and currently is a Representative for Tom Irwin Inc.  The Bear would be proud of their contributions to our industry.

The event pairs two-person teams from the GCSA of Cape Cod and the GCSA of New England in a friendly competition and a day of fun.  The winning Association claims possession of the Bear Cup trophy for a year.

This will be our season opener for golf meetings and the staff at Black Rock has worked hard to put together a day of exceptional golf.
