About the William Hunt Trilby Tour
The prestigious amateur golf tournament, now heading into it's 10th year, will host a series of Regional Championships across the UK to find the top 10 from each to earn their place at the International Grand Final. The top players from across the nation will battle it out until we are left with our Trilby Tour World Champion.
Each Regional Championship is broadcast on Sky Sports as part of the Trilby Tour series. With annual viewership figures of over 3.5 million in 2015 the Trilby Tour is officially the largest Amateur golf television series in the UK and Europe.
The appeal of the tournament lies in its unusual competitive format, with the top 4 players on the day going in to a 3-hole shootout to decide the champion. Golfers have hailed the Trilby Tour as the closest experience to a Professional tournament, playing under the pressures of an international televised event. Die-hard fans return year after year gripped by it's fierce winner takes all competitive format.
