The Idaho Governor’s Cup was established in 1974 by then-Governor Cecil Andrus. It is a 501 (c) (3) organization with a mission to help Idaho kids stay in Idaho to pursue their higher education goals.

What began as a small golf tournament has grown into an annual event with approximately 600 participants and featuring golf, shotgun sports, fly fishing, and a number of social activities. Each evening after the daily sporting events wrap up there is great food, entertainment, and plenty of networking opportunities.

Former Governor Otter put his own stamp on the event by deciding to alternate the location between Sun Valley and Coeur d’Alene. These two great Idaho resorts are beautiful venues that impress with their hospitality while offering diverse scenery and activities.

Governor and First Lady Little have supported and attended the event for years and are excited to host again this year. They are equally excited to give the proceeds to deserving Idaho students.

Our volunteer Board of Directors is made up of representatives of the many generous sponsors that are the lifeblood of our organization. Their responsibilities include fundraising, helping to maintain the prestige of the event, and – perhaps most importantly – selecting our scholarship recipients each year.
