The Sunday prior to the PGA Championship, the Gateway Section and Whitmoor Country Club was honored to host the 2018 Secretary’s Cup,an event for military veterans who participate in PGA HOPE programing that is quickly becoming a staple for PGA HOPE both in the Gateway Section and nationwide.

St. Louis welcomed teams from six other states while cheering on seven of our own. Veterans were celebrated all day beginning with an emotional opening ceremony, 9 holes of tournament golf with a PGA Professional, a putting contest, meals, a swag bag, and a closing ceremony with a special appearance by Ozzie Smith. Team New Jersey captured this year’s crown, but in the end the end the winners were all the veterans who participated. Check out all the photos from Secretary’s Cup below. A very special thanks goes to Whitmoor Country Club Brian Maine, for making the event the largest and most impact yet!
