COUNTY CONNECTION | Meade County's "Ryder Cup"

April’s “County Connection” series took Spectrum News to Meade County, where there is an annual competition between two of the local golf courses in Brandenburg.

River Trace Golf at Meade Activity Center and Doe Valley Golf Club compete against each other every year in an inter-club “Ryder Cup” match. The winning course then gets the “Ryder Cup” for that year.

Doe Valley is the defending champion.

Sports Night’s Andrew Chernoff stopped by both courses to see what the tournament means to both River Trace and Doe Valley:
