Sam Bashir wins 2022 Golf’s Thomas R Smith Challenge Cup


Sam Bashir took top honors in winning the 2022 Challenge Cup. Fred Boureau was Runner up. The match went to extra hole after the normal 18 holes so was extremely competitive.


The Thomas R Smith Challenge Cup which has been held annually since 1994 is a straight knockout tournament for members of the

St Maarten Golf Association. Winning this prestigious cup is a much sought after honor and 30 member players vie for the opportunity to win each year. Named after Thomas Smith who was a founding member of the St Maarten Golf Association, the tournament is played over 18 holes and in order to hold the final cup, the ultimate winner has to win 6 rounds of golf on a golf handicap system.


In a few months, the 2023 Challenge Cup competition will start and everyone is practicing hard in order to hopefully hold this piece of golf history in their hands.
