ELMSFORD, N.Y.

“Our international team matches are a longstanding tradition at the MGA and are special events that we look forward to.” said Brian Mahoney, MGA Executive Director. “However, our priority remains the health and well-being of all involved, and this decision was based on a number of factors, including restrictions on international travel and CDC guidance. We look forward to welcoming our friends from Paris and resuming our competition in 2022.” 

The French-American Challenge typically alternates between sites in France and the Met Area, and has been played at some of the Met Area’s and Paris’ most outstanding courses. A spot on this team, which consists of six men and four women, is one of the most sought-after positions by Met Area competitors. The Ligue de Paris won the most recent competition, held in 2018 at Golf des Yvelines, outside of Paris.
