Curtis Cup Captains: All the Golfers Who've Served

The list of Curtis Cup captains goes back to 1932, when the biennial tournament played by the best women amateur golfers was first played. Below is the full list of those who've served in the captain's role for the United States team and the Great Britain & Ireland team.

You won't find a lot of big names on the list (aside from Joyce Wethered and Glenna Collet Vare, two early legends who captained) unless you follow women's amateur golf. Most of the people who've been Curtis Cup captains were previously important players for their side in the event.

While some of the captains on the following list did turn pro, many were lifelong amateurs, and all of them were best-known in their competitive careers for their accomplishments in the amateur ranks.
