Princess of Monaco Cup - 2021



The Princess of Monaco Cup golf tournament was first held in October 2019. It is a celebrity cup which gathers 18 teams around sports celebrities. In 2019, the event raised more than €330,000 for the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, participating in the renovation of the Princess Charlene Municipal Pool in La Turbie as well as a five-year-long project to teach swimming at Awutu Breku High School in Ghana.

On September 16th, 2021, the Princess of Monaco Cup golf tournament will be sponsored by Monaco Asset Management and held in support of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation and Fight Aids Monaco.

Up at the Monte-Carlo Golf Club, teams of 3 people (including 1 celebrity) will compete against each other, with the competition following the “Scramble” format rules. This format is a friendly way to play golf as each team picks up where the best ball among those of each teammate was located – and it makes for a fun, fast-paced group game.

In addition to the main event, a unique experience will be presented on the same day: a 19th golf hole at the Place du Casino de Monte-Carlo, with the chance to swing away in front of one of the world’s most famous buildings.

Having one shot, contestants will test their skills and precision hoping to win prestigious prizes.

Starting at 7 pm, the Casino Square will be restructured to host a temporary golf course. This exceptional and exclusive opportunity will be reserved to the tournament’s participants.

This year, the Princess of Monaco Cup will help fund the following projects, supported by each entity:

Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation
  • The “Aqwa Itineris” project, a portable swimming pool in a trailer, meant to make swimming lessons accessible to all: the perfect solution for remote areas and communities without swimming lessons.
  • The Project BHASA in Bangladesh, where the Foundation has been present for many years in close partnership with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, teaching children how to swim and funding the training of local lifeguards and rescuers.
  • The “Maison de Vie” in Carpentras, France, opened in 2004 as a place of respite and healing. It is a dynamic home for people weakened by HIV - a generator of well-being and restored health. Today, more than 1300 residents are welcomed there.
  • The Etafeni Day Care Center Trust in South Africa, a comprehensive social centre for AIDS-affected children in Nyanga Slum, Cape Town. For residents facing poverty, severe unemployment, violence and alarming rates of HIV/AIDS, the centre is a place of hope and inspiration, providing an excellent opportunity for skill-building and empowerment.
