Congratulations to our 2018 Georgia Cup Champion, Harry Ellis (British Amateur Champion)!

(Alpharetta, Ga - March 26, 2018) Despite wet conditions due to heavy overnight rains and temperatures hovering just below 50 degrees all day, British Amateur champion, Harry Ellis defeated United States Amateur champion, Doc Redman 6 and 5 to win The Georgia Cup at The Golf Club of Georgia.
