Mayor John Vieau of Chicopee beat out Mayor Sarno and Mayor William Sapelli of Agawam to take the Mayor's Cup back home to Chicopee.

“This event has been a long-time coming,” said Judy Matt, Spirit of Springfield President, of the tournament that was originally planned for June 2020 but had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandmeic.  “We are pleased to have the support of the business community and golfers, and to have the mayor’s take time from their busy schedules.”
