FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

For the first time since 1959 there will not be a Men’s Porter Cup golf tournament at Niagara Falls Country Club.

Tournament directors announced today that due to the effects of the COVID-19 crisis the 2020 tournament has been cancelled.

“This is a sad day for me,” said Dena Armstrong, who has been involved with the tournament since 1973. “Unfortunately with all of the uncertainty that is going on in New York state regarding COVID-19, we really didn’t have much of a choice.”

Her tournament co-director Michael Vitch echoed her sentiments by saying, “it really came down to a matter of safety for both our members and the players. With all of the uncertainty going on with the phases of reopening in Western New York, and after much discussion, we just decided that this would be the best course of action to take.”

Both Armstrong and Vitch said they fully expect the tournament to come back strong in 2021.

Any player that has registered can receive a refund by going to the Porter Cup website and golfgenius.com.

The Senior Porter Cup is still scheduled for September 2-4.
