The first American National Day was held on the 4th of July at the Monaco Yacht Club. The event was hosted by Susan Feaster, Chairman of the Monaco US Celebrity Ryder Cup and Eric Brundage, Publisher of Monaco Life.

In addition to celebrating the Declaration of Independence, what Mr Brundage referred to as one of the greatest documents ever written about freedom and society, the luncheon served as the official kick-off of the 2018 Monaco US Celebrity Ryder Cup was, as Ms Feaster said, “a thank you from Team USA and the Cup organisers to the leadership of Monaco for their hospitality, generosity and support.”

The fifty guests, including a special Team USA Member, the Honourable Les Brownlee, Secretary of the US Army (acting 2001-2004, retired) and recipient of the Purple Heart, Silver Star and Bronze Star, were seated at designated themed tables – George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin.

The 2018 Monaco US Celebrity Ryder Cup will be held June 15-17 at the Monte-Carlo Golf Club, and a Ryder Cup Pro Am will be played June 15.

The final Celebrity Ryder Cup match between Team USA, of which Prince Albert is the Honorary co-captain, and Team Europe Celebrities will be held June 16. An Awards Ceremony and Black Tie Gala will take place the following evening, on June 17, in the Yacht Club Ballroom.

Maitre Henry Rey, President of the Monte-Carlo Golf Club, will be honoured at the 2018 Gala for his career and dedication to the success of the development of golf in Monaco.

A distinguished Life Time Achievement Award will be presented to Pascal Grizot, Chairman of Ryder Cup France 2018, by Prince Albert.

The proceeds of this charity event will benefit the Ryder Cup Trust for the development of golf for youth, beginners, seniors and the disabled. In addition, a “Green Golf” gift will be made to the Prince Albert II Foundation for environmentally enhanced golf course construction and sustainability.

Last year’s inaugural Monaco US Celebrity Ryder Cup saw two-time Super Bowl Champion Joe Theismann captain Team USA to victory against Pascal Grizot’s Team Europe, after fifteen teams hit the greens at Royal Mougins Golf for a two-man scramble.

Shane Heminway, founder of Monaco Star Events and playing for Team USA, has had the bragging rights of an unprecedented hole-in-one ever since.
