Desire Street Ministries is proud to host The Desire Cup golf tournament, which has been created around the storied rivalry between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Florida Gators. We offer either our original 2-man Ryder Cup format, or a 4-man team Scramble.
The Desire Cup is a way for fans from Georgia and Florida to connect and compete on the golf course during the weekend of the Georgia vs. Florida football game. Players associate with the team of their choice and the winning team takes home the coveted Desire Cup trophy. In just a short time, the Desire Cup has become a source of pride and legacy for both school’s fans.
WHY: Proceeds from the tournament help support Desire Street Ministries as they coach and care for urban leaders of ministries reaching hundreds of kids in the distressed neighborhoods of cities across the Southeastern U.S.
WHAT: At The Desire Cup, the Bulldog faithful take on Gator fans. The Rivalry
WHERE: This year we’ll be back at the beautiful and challenging TPC Sawgrass, enjoying the Stadium course, where every hole has water! The Golf
