Country Club of Birmingham| Birmingham, Ala.
The Men’s and Women’s U.S. State Team Championship is conducted every two years in the Fall. The IGA Points List is used as a guide to select three men and three women to represent the Idaho Golf Association.
The point standings for the U.S. State Team will run for a two year period. Typically, the date range for earning points runs from the specific day the selection is made, to the next selection date.
Age requirements: There are no age requirements.
Please note: Collegiate players that are currently playing on a golf team are not eligible for U.S. State Team. NCAA guidelines prohibit players from competing in another team competition during the school year. However, college players that are between schools, taking a year off, or not active on the golf team are eligible.
The field of golfers will play 18 holes on each of three stroke play rounds. The two lowest scores from each three-person team constitute the team score for each round. The three-day total is the team’s score for the Championship.

The Morse Cup Team Competition has been held as part of the Pacific Coast Amateur Championship since the tournament’s rebirth in 1967. Each Member Association that belongs to the Pacific Coast Golf Association designates three players as its Morse Cup team.
