The Chukka Cup, Mesaba's version of the Ryder Cup, was first established in 2003. It quickly became one of the most popular and anticipated golf events of the season.
Players born or residing in Hibbing comprised the Hibbing Squad while players born or residing outside of Hibbing made up the World Team.
It was decided after the 2012 season that the event should be put on hold with future plans for an eventual revival. Stay tuned. . . . .
