Concession to Age

Located in Bradenton, Florida, near Tampa, The Concession Golf Club was founded on the international match-play spirit of the Ryder Cup. It starts with the club name, which honors one of the most noble acts of sportsmanship in golf history when Jack Nicklaus conceded a two-foot putt to Tony Jacklin at the 1969 Ryder Cup to halve their match and result in the first tie in the event’s history. The two teamed up to design the course in 2006, too, and over the years the club has hosted some Ryder Cup-like matches against clubs from the U.K., so it’s only fitting that next April the club will host the first Walker Cup-style competition for mid- and senior amateurs from the U.S and Great Britain/Ireland, aptly named the Concession Cup. The name of the trophy will honor two of the greatest amateurs ever, Bill Campbell and Sir Michael Bonallack. Eight mid-ams, eight seniors, and two super-seniors on each side will compete in foursomes, four-balls, and singles over the three day, biennial event.
