2019 Memorial Cup Teams

                   Terry Widmer - Captain                                           Sondra Swan - Captain
                                                                                         








In 2003, after the death of long time DW member and USGA rules official Betsy Clifford, DW and the men’s comparable group, DDGA wanted to play a tournament together to honor Betsy and Chuck Ashmore (who had also recently passed). The Ashmore/Clifford Cup was born. It was played women vs. men for three years.

The logistics became increasingly difficult, so in 2006, our DW ladies played a year-end Solheim style match play event called the Clifford Cup. Ladies had to earn their way on to the teams based on participation and performance, so it was quite an honor to play. When Lettie Moore, another long-time member died, we added her name to the competition. 

In 2011, after losing Chris Braatz and Lifetime Member Carrie Barbee, the Board agreed that to honor our departed friends, we would rename the competition the Memorial Cup and play a tournament in honor of our golfing friends who are no longer with us.  Names Listed on the Memorial Cup are:  Betsy Clifford, Lettie Moore, Anne Cawston, Wanda Gregory, Christine Braatz, Carrie Barbee, Annamae Paettie, Barbara Casey, Parthene Holstrom, Lynda Martin, Jan Coleman, Deb Witry, Jettie Sams, Gay Schleicher.
