Trophy Winners

Scratch Challenge Cup

The Scratch Challenge Cup has been played for since 1891. In some of the early years there are two names on the honour board for a particular year, whether this indicates that the competition was held twice or if two people had the same winning score is not known.

  • Individual aggregate 36-hole medal played off scratch.
  • Played over two consecutive days (Saturday and Sunday).
  • First day draw, all off the 1st tee in groups of three in ascending sequence of exact handicap.
  • Second day draw, groups of three in descending sequence of score with the worst scores off the 10th tee if necessary to ensure a reasonable finish time.
  • Maximum handicap limit: 18.
  • Overall competition ties will be decided by the play off/sudden death procedure as laid down in paragraph 8c of the Open Competitions Rules.
  • Food is generally provided on the second day.
