For the first time in it’s 64 year history the Porter Cup will be a combined Men’s and Women’s event.

Tournament officials announced that this year there will be both a Men’s and Women’s Division consisting of 54 Players in each Division with alternating tee times.

Tournament co director Dena Armstrong said “We’re excited with this new change. This new format will give area golf enthusiasts the opportunity to see top women amateur golfers as well as the top men over a four day period.”

The Porter Cup will be held July 12-15th at Niagara Falls Country Club and once again M&T Bank will be the major sponsor.
