The Pewter Cup is one of the top Four-Ball events in Western Massachusetts! Always drawing a top flight field, the Pewter Cup attracts 112 teams annually to compete at one of the top clubs in the Berkshires. The Pewter Cup format is all GROSS with divisions set up by the tournament committee.
We are excited and hopeful to announce that the 2020 Pewter Cup will be held on Friday thru Sunday, June 26-28th at Berkshire Hills Country Club! As with everything COVID related, this is SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
At BHCC, we have taken every precaution to ensure the safety of our members, guests, and staff, and are confident that the 2020 Pewter Cup will be a tremendous success! Golf has undergone significant changes during the pandemic, many of which will be in place for the event. Flagsticks cannot be removed or touched, Bunker Rakes will not be out, only single rider carts and one cart per team will be allowed (one designated driver), and we will continue at all times to social distance.
We are anticipating that the state of Massachusetts will permit restaurants to re-open on June 8. This is predicated on numbers continuing to decline and avoiding the recurrence of any statistical spikes. This will allow us to resume use of our Clubhouse which is currently off limits.
In summary, we are planning this event assuming MA Governor Baker will be lifting some key restrictions currently in place. Those include the current mandated 15 minute tee time intervals, closed restrooms and locker rooms, closed range and putting greens, suspended in-house food and beverage service.
***The event is subject to change at any time***
Our intention is to do everything in our power to make this event happen in June. However, we are dependent on the state reopening schedule holding. If the Pewter Cup is forced into postponement the tentative makeup dates would be August 14-16th.
