Moortown trophy heading north

THE Ryder Commemoration Cup, presented by Samuel Ryder to the ladies of Moortown Golf Club in 1929, is to go on show at the British Golf Museum in St Andrews.

The Ryder Commemoration Cup, presented by Samuel Ryder to the ladies of Moortown Golf Club in 1929, is to go on show at the British Golf Museum in St Andrews.

The solid silver trophy was given as a ‘thank you’ to the Moortown lady members by Sam Ryder himself for their help in hosting the first-ever Ryder Cup to be held on British soil.

Moortown’s lady captain Glynis Webster handed over the Cup to museum director Angela Howe in St Andrews, where it will form part of a special Ryder Cup display, along with a letter from Sam’s daughter recalling her memories of the event and reiterating her father’s thanks for the ladies’ help.

“At Moortown, we are delighted that our Ryder Cup will be on display for all golf enthusiasts to see, instead of being stored away in a bank vault,” said Webster.
