Michigan is home to:

  • 1st ever Cairns Cup to held in the US.
  • 1st US winning Captain in 2022 Tracy Ramin, from Montrose, Michigan.
  • 1st US female Captain in 2024 Kim Moore, Head Women’s Golf Coach at Western Michigan University.

However, Michigan 2024 will also proudly boast to being the FIRST EVER mixed sports event in the world where TWO women will lead out their teams.

Finally, the Cairns Cup Management team visited the state in October and it was clear from the outset, that ‘Michigander’ are not only looking forward to playing host BUT they are excited to be the first host of the event in the USA.
