The Closing Ceremony of the Curtis Cup Match is a study of diplomacy, but also a great tribute to the years of friendship between the women amateur golfers of the United States and those of Great Britain and Ireland. The good will in this ceremony, which showed up again and again throughout the week, could serve as an example for relations among nations. In one word, this Match has grace. The Essex County Club was the perfect site. The course was both beautiful and challenging. The members and staff were more than efficient, they were perfect and it was refreshing to be welcomed each day with a smile and a greeting. Tonight the big tent is set up for the Celebration Dinner. Summer pastel flowers, candles. There will be convivial toasts. The USGA Women’s Committee will offer a toast to Her Majesty, the Queen. The Ladies Golf Union will toast the President of the United States. There are some who believe that we live with lower standards of society than we once knew. Such doubters should attend a Curtis Cup match.
