Sun Mountain Named as Official Bag Sponsor of The Cairns Cup 2024

Sun Mountain Official Bag Sponsor


The Cairns Cup – Disability Golf’s Premier Matchplay Event between the USA and Europe – is proud to announce Sun Mountain as the Official Bag Sponsor for the 2024 contest to be held at the Cherry Creek Golf Club, Shelby Township, near Detroit, Michigan from 27th July to 3rd August.

The world’s leading golf bag manufacturer joins other global brands including adidas, 5iron Golf and Mizuno as sponsors of the second edition of the bi-annual event that began in 2022, when amateur golfers with differing disabilities representing the USA defeated their European counterparts over three days of fierce competition at The Shire – London Golf Club.

This year, Sun Mountain will be supplying the 16 players of both teams – drawn from eight American States and nine European nations – with customised cart bags and ClubGlider travel covers from its latest award-winning range and supporting the event across social media channels.

All 32 premium cart bags appearing in the competition will be designated in the traditional Red and Blue colours of the respective teams and embroidered with the official event crest, while the ultra-manoeuvrable travel covers will also feature the distinctive event logo during transit to and from the event.

The Cairns Cup is a week-long festival of golf that includes a pre-tournament Charity Golf Day, followed by a Gala Dinner known as the fundraiser and an open day where the players hold workshops for disability groups and individuals from in and around the host club. The opening ceremony is followed by three days of matchplay competition played using the fourball, foursomes and singles formats.

Kevin Booth, Vice President of The Cairns Cup, said: “To have a brand of the stature of Sun Mountain support our event shows how far we have come in raising disability golf and disability sport as a whole. The brand’s commitment to the event is both exciting and humbling. We are looking forward to working with their team in taking The Cairns Cup to a wider audience!”

Commenting on the new partnership, Grant Knudson, President & Chief Brand Officer at Sun Mountain, said:As a brand that looks to provide all golfers across the world with high quality products that make the game more enjoyable, we’re thrilled to support The Cairns Cup and its ambition to be one of the leading global events in the disability golfing calendar. Every one of these amazing players taking part has an inspirational backstory that we look forward to sharing with our wider Sun Mountain community.”
