The 15th Annual Atchison-Holt Ryder Cup took place on Saturday and Sunday, July 20 and 22, 2019, between Rock Port Golf & Country Club, Mound City Golf Club, and Tarkio Golf Club. The tournament began in Rock Port on Saturday morning with a 9-hole scramble, then moved to Mound City in the afternoon for a 9-hole Best Ball round. Due to 6.5 inches of rain overnight in Tarkio and around 4 inches in Rock Port, the final 18 holes had to be played in Mound City with a 9-hole scramble on the front 9 and a modified alternate shot on the back 9. Each club took the top six scores from each 9-holes played.
The results are as follows: Rock Port Golf & Country Club (TPGCC) – 848; Tarkio Golf Club (TGC) – 849; Mound City Golf Club (MCGC) – 849
