The United States Golf Teachers Cup is the annual national championship event of the United States Golf Teachers Federation (USGTF), although all members of the WGTF are welcome to play. The tournament has been held at premier golf courses throughout the United States, adding to its popularity. A full field of 156 or more golfers from all over the world is generally on hand to compete in this most prestigious event. Divisions of play include Open, Senior (50+), Super Senior (60+), and Ladies. A purse featuring $25,000 or more in prize money is one of the many perks of the event. Held in autumn, the United States Golf Teachers Cup welcomes all Level III (fully-certified) and Level IV (Master Golf Teaching Professionals) members on first-received, first-served entry basis.
