What is the William Hunt Trilby Tour?
The Trilby Tour came about in 2007 after golf aficionado and Savile Row designer William Hunt's own love of the sport saw him come up with a unique competition whereby golfers could compete nationally in an extraordinary 'Winner-Takes-All' format.
The Trilby Tour was created to give players from all walks of life the chance of hitting the big time, played out in a televised national tournament. Amateurs from all over the world come together to compete in Pro conditions, under the pressures of an international televised event.
Where else would you get the chance to play in front of Sky TV cameras and be seen by millions of people on Sky Sports?

 

Who can play in the William Hunt Trilby Tour?
The tournament is open to any amateur golfer who holds a current handicap issued by a CONGU affiliated golf club. You must hold a handicap of 18 or better and must provide proof (handicap certificate that is no more than 14 days old) of your handicap on the day of your chosen tournament.

 

What are the venues and dates for the 2017 Trilby Tour?

The 2017 venues and dates will be announced in February 2017. Please make sure you are subscribed to our emails to receive all news and updates.

 

What is the Trilby Two's?
This is a unique better ball pair's event that takes place once a year in front of the Sky Sports cameras; entrance includes the same package as the full Amateur Trilby Tour for you and your team mate

How much does it cost to enter?

Entry into the 2017 Trilby Tour is £285 (Trilby Twos £550). You will be required to purchase a £50 (Trilby Twos £100) deposit to guarantee your place on the Tour. When the venues are announced early in 2017 you must then select a venue and pay off the remainder balance of £235 (Trilby Twos £450) within 14 days to guarantee your entry.

At this moment in time the Trilby Tour is a male-only event but if there is enough demand in the future then we may reconsider.

Do you monitor handicaps?
We monitor handicaps very carefully. At each event we ask to see proof of handicap in the form of a valid Trilby Tour handicap certificate (no older than 14 days old on the date of the tournament) for every player at tournament registration. We will also keep a copy of the handicap in case of any dispute.

We accept the following types of handicap: a CONGU affiliated golf club handicap. However this information must be presented on our official Trilby Tour handicap certificate.
If you have entered the 2017 tournament you are required to update your Trilby Tour account with relevant handicap information, your clothing order and entry to the Trilby Tour will not be considered complete until this has been done. It is your responsibility to keep your account updated. Please login to the Trilby Tour website and select 'Update My Info' from the user menu.

Make sure you bring an up-to-date Trilby Tour handicap certificate with you on the day of the event. Certificates should be signed and dated no longer than 14 days before your event by your CONGU affiliated golf club. Our certificated handicap should be printed on club headed paper (club stamp is also acceptable). A template which includes all of the required information will be emailed to you and is available for download here.

 

I do not hold a CONGU handicap can I still enter?
Only CONGU affiliated club handicaps are accepted but there are numerous clubs around the UK that offer very flexible and cheap memberships which would allow you to obtain a CONGU handicap. They charge an admin fee for membership and then charge green fees each time you play.

 

I do not live in the UK and do not have a CONGU handicap what can I do?
Please contact us directly at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

What would happen if I do not have a handicap or a valid handicap at registration?
You will not be able to play on the day and will be refused entry and forfeit your entry.

 

How are tee times chosen?
Tee times are drawn at random and groups are made up of 3-balls (4-balls in the Trilby Two's event). The first tee time generally is at 7am but can change depending on the size of the field. Tee times and groups will be posted in the member's corner and on the front page of the Trilby Tour website 10 to 14 days before an event. Tee times will not be able to be changed once they have been set.

 

How do I qualify for the William Hunt Trilby Tour Final?
The winner and 9 runners up will be invited to compete in the William Hunt Trilby Tour International Grand Final. There will be a shoot-out for 10th qualifying place should there be a tie.
It is your responsibility to make sure you are present and available to participate in any - play off (if required), failure to do so will lead to you forfeiting your place in the play off. Entrants who have made it through to the final will be confirmed by email.

 

Can I play with a friend?
You may both enter the same region but in the interests of fair play we will not be able to place you in the same game as all tee times are drawn at random.

 

Do I need a caddy?
It is your responsibility to bring a caddie with you on the day of the event, your caddie can be anyone of your choice the only requirements are they must be able to carry your golf bag and clubs unassisted for the entire length of the course No trolleys or buggies may be used and must be a minimum age of 16 years of age on the day of the tournament entered.

If you progress to the final you will need to keep all of your caddie gear with you, if you lose your caddie outfit or change your caddie and require a different outfit there will be a replacement cost.

 

I'm a woman - can I caddy for a player?
Yes by all means, and you won't be the first as we welcome female caddies to come join us in the game.

 

Can I bring friends and family along?
