The Cup

One of the most prized possessions in all of sports, the Phi Alpha Cup stands for everything that is pure about American sport. On par with other prestigious trophies such as the Vince Lombardi Trophy and the Stanley Cup, the Phi Alpha Cup is passed to the annual golf tournament’s champion. The Cup has visited 12 states and has been viewed by countless American politicians, sports figures and sporting fans. Made of sterling silver, the Phi Alpha Cup stands 21 inches high, measures thirteen inches from handle to handle and weighs 16 pounds. The Cup is engraved with the winning team’s name each year by renowned sculpture artist Christoph Atkinborough in Tacoma, Washington. The Cup was originally commissioned for over 500 American dollars by a committee of some of America’s finest golf sportsmen who envisioned an annual event which would represent the finest golfing play and sportsmanship.
