The Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club recently hosted the Valley Cup golf tournament, an annual golf tournament held for the last 24 years. The tournament includes the following clubs: Fairbanks Ranch Country Club, The Farms Golf Club, The Santaluz Club and Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club.
The event features teams of 24 players per team competing over three days in various golf formats. The winner is determined from a cumulative score over the three days of competition. The tournament starts with a Wednesday Pairings party and finishes with a Black Tie Dinner and Awards presentation. Every year, each club rotates hosting the tournament festivities; this year Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club hosted and next year Fairbanks Ranch Country Club will host.
Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club was the defending champion, having won the Valley Cup in 2012 — The Santaluz Club was crowned champion this year.
The golf tournament was originally started to “Foster Friendship, Promote Competition and Recognize Excellence” and to this day continues to focus on its original mission.
