Army Navy Country Club
For the last 9 years, in preparation for the Secretaries Cup Football Game between the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (under the Department of Transportation Secretary) and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy (under the Department of Homeland Security Secretary), alumni from both the USMMA and USCGA have participated in the Annual Secretaries Cup Golf Challenge at Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, Va.
Coming into this year’s 2017 event the USCGA was leading the series 7-0-1 as The USMMA had never won a match. That changed in on October 10, 2017 as Kings Point rallied to beat Coast Guard and win possession of the coveted 9th Annual Secretaries Cup Golf Challenge trophy for Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao. As always, a good time was had by all, culminating in an evening of camaraderie for the alumni contestants at the magnificent Army Navy Clubhouse during the post-tournament dinner. Congratulations to the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy for a job well done. Acta Non Verba..
