About The Copa de las Americas

The Curtis Cup is a biennial team match-play event that features eight of the best female amateur golfers in the United States against eight from Great Britain and Ireland. First played in 1932, the match features spirited competition in foursomes, four-ball and singles matches over the three
days of play.

It goes without saying that without the Curtis sisters, there would be no Curtis Cup. In 2010, fans of women’s amateur golf from around the world are invited to celebrate the 36th Curtis Cup Match at the home of Harriot and Margaret Curtis, the venerable Essex County Club in beautiful Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts.

Donald Ross, the world-famous architect, became the club professional in 1910. During the years Ross was at Essex, 1910 to 1913, and thereafter until 1917, he redesigned almost all the holes,
constructing or reconstructing several holes a year. The present third green, which was part of the original nine holes, became part of the new 18. This green is considered to be the oldest in the country.

Come and enjoy the hospitality of the Curtis sisters’ hometown and their home course. The Essex County Club family is committed to hosting the finest Curtis Cup yet. We’re opening our historic doors to members of the Curtis Cup Teams and to all those who share a passion for the game and an appreciation for female amateur golf at its highest level.
