It’s not a game, it’s an event

Leave the plaid pants at home. Get ready to make some incredible business contacts and have fun doing it—and maybe knock a golf ball around on up to three top-notch golf courses in the picturesque Flathead Valley. The annual Governor’s Cup tournament is a cornerstone business development event and quite possibly THE biggest networking opportunity of the year. You will join hundreds of participants that include business and government leaders representing businesses from across Montana, the entire U.S., and even around the world.

JULY 29 – 31, 2021

After cancellation of the 2020 Governors’ Cup, the Montana Chamber Foundation is looking forward to bringing business leaders together in the breathtaking Flathead Valley for the 32nd Annual Governors’ Cup Golf Tournament!

 We hope you will join us on July 29 at Flathead Valley Community College for the Governors’ Reception and Sandbaggers BBQ followed by two days of golf at Buffalo Hill, Meadow Lake and Eagle Bend.

The Governors’ Cup spans three packed days. The first day kicks off with practice rounds of golf for those who want to warm up for the following day’s tee-off.

That evening, participants gather for the Governors’ Reception and Sandbaggers Barbecue. The public is invited to participate.
