Golf: Princess of Monaco Cup coming to Casino Square

Prince Albert II competing in the Princess of Monaco Cup

This September, the Princess of Monaco Cup will return for the first time since 2021, bringing golf right into the heart of the Principality.

Sponsored by Monaco Asset Management, the tournament will make its first appearance in two years on 6th September, with proceeds going to the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation.

The tournament will be largely held at the Monte-Carlo Golf Club, although a ‘symbolic’ 19th hole will be installed in front of one of the most iconic buildings in this part of the world: the Monte-Carlo Casino. Teams will tee off towards the Casino on a green specially constructed in the heart of the square.

18 teams consisting of three players, including one celebrity, will take part in a competition following the ‘Scramble’ rules, making for a dynamic, fun and fast-paced game.

Richard Dunne and Russell Martin amongst past participants

This year, the Princess of Monaco Cup will celebrate its third edition. In 2019, €330,000 was raised to help renovate the Municipal Princess Charlene Pool in La Turbie, as well as finance a five-year project at the Awutu-Breku School in Ghana.

Whilst the identities of the celebrity competitors for this year’s edition are yet to be revealed, the tournament has had no difficulty in attracting big-name stars in the past. Former Formula One team owner Eddie Jordan was involved, although not competing, in the 2021 edition. Former LA Dodgers baseball player Russell Martin, former Ireland international footballer Richard Dunne and former England rugby international Dan Luger all took part two years ago.

Make sure you’re never left out of the conversation.
