1900 Metropolitan Golf Association Championship Women’s Morris County Golf Club Sterling Silver Trophy


This elegant sterling silver on glass three handled trophy was created by the Alvin Mfg. Co. in New Jersey and bears their mark on the bottom rim along with “999/1000 Fine , 3503 .patented”. The Metropolitan Golf Association was founded in 1897 and is one of the oldest golf associations in the United States. The Women’s Championship of 1900 final match was between Miss Genevieve Hecker and Miss Ruth Underhill. Underhill was the 1899 and reigning USGA Women’s Amateur Champion. Hecker would go on to win the both the 1901-and 1902Women’s Amateur championships. In this 1900 Metropolitan Golf Association Championship Hecker would strongly upset Underhill 9 and 7. This trophy is the Consolation Cup presented to Ruth Underhill. The inscription on the trophy reads “Women’s Metropolitan Championship Tournament, Morris County Golf Club, June 1900, Consolation Cup.

The Morris County Golf Club was one of the early member Clubs of the USGA in 1895. Fittingly for this trophy, the club was planned, organized and operated by women. Morris County GC hosted the 1896 and 1905 Women’s Amateur Championship and the 1897 Men’s Amateur.

This is a magnificent early women’s golf trophy that featured a match between two historically significant pioneering women golf champions. On the inside of this 6 ½” tall trophy there are three cracks. They are flush to the surface and can hardly be seen from the outside. They do not affect the integrity or presentation quality of the trophy.
