TASK: Develop a custom tournament for Umpqua Bank and its clients that will occur annually and is the premier, must-attend event of the year.


SOLUTION: The Umpqua Bank Cup: A 32 person, Ryder Cup style event that takes place over two days and includes two rounds of competitive golf at a premier destination. The winning team claims The Cup trophy and gets bragging rights for the rest of the year.


RESULT: The results have been unanimously praised. Participants in 2016 stated that it is a can't-miss event and have begged for future invitations. In 2015, the event took place right before the 2015 U.S. Open at Chambers Bay, and in 2016, it was held at the exclusive Pronghorn Golf Resort on both their Nicklaus and Fazio designed courses.
