About the Trilby Tour

The Trilby Tour opens entry to 2015 tournament including Trilby Matchplay Championship and the 'Trilby Twos' a Better Ball Pairs event.

The prestigious amateur golf tournament, now in its 9th year, will host a series of Regional Championships across the UK to find the Amateur Champion 2015. Each Regional Championship is broadcast on Sky Sports as part of the Trilby Tour series.

With annual viewership figures of over 2.5 million (since 2011) the Trilby Tour is officially the largest Amateur golf television series in the UK and Europe.

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 its fierce competitive format.

2015 Regional Championship Lineup

The Trilby Tour 2015 will be taking place at a series of prestigious Marriott golf venues across the United Kingdom including Scotland and Wales.

William Hunt says " I am excited to be staging the championships at a selection of high quality golf venues across the UK and beyond. The brand alignment between the Trilby Tour and the Marriott has fantastic synergy - they really get where we're coming from. Their level of commitment and vision for the future of amateur golf is one that resounds with the Trilby Tour ethos perfectly.

I started the tournament with the intention of putting the ordinary amateur golfer at the heart of the action - as far as I'm concerned everyone who enters isn't ordinary but extra-ordinary.

It's about keeping the game modern, without losing the heart of what makes golf the fantastic game that it is. Hosting the Championships at Marriott Golf Venues means our players will experience the game of their life on some incredible golf courses with first class facilities.

It's going to be an experience to remember."

Founder William Hunt says

"The Trilby Tour is about re-defining the game of golf and taking it to new heights. It's about constantly challenging yourself and becoming greater than you ever thought you could be.

People don't think about golf as an extreme sport but that is precisely what the Trilby Tour is – taking the game and pushing it to the limit.

The Trilby Tour is the only event that offers amateur golfers a truly professional experience. There are no half-measures - the pressure is relentless and it's Winner takes all.

In front of the crowds and cameras there is no place to hide. I can guarantee it will be a day to remember for the rest of your life. Each year we raise the bar in the amateur golf game. We strive for excellence.

Though the Trilby Tour has grown bigger and bigger each year the ethos remains the same as the day we started: to redefine the game of golf and push players to the limit." 

Amateur Champion 2013

Trilby Tour 2013 Amateur Grand Champion: Seb Carmichael-Brown

From over 1200 competitors drawn across 8 regions, we pitted the best against the best in the Grand Final at Rockliffe Hall and one man emerged victorious to claim the Championship title! 

Seb Carmichael Brown won the Amateur Championship in 2013 beating a field of over 1200 amateur golfers to clinch the title at the Grand Final at Rockliffe Hall.

The 9 handicapper from The Shire London GC came out top in the 4-man, 3 hole final play off with a score of 41 points. 

Carmichael Brown says "My motto is never give up!"

His first time playing in the Trilby Tour, Seb Carmichael-Brown defied the odds by marginally scraping through each round to have a blinding day at the Grand Final. What's his secret? He puts it down to putting, putting and more putting!

The appeal of the tournament lies in its unusual competitive format and concludes with a 4-man, 3-hole shootout to decide the winner.

The tournament has had an incredibly enthusiastic response from the Amateur community with players hailing it the closest experience to a Professional event, playing under the pressures of an international televised event. Die-hard fans return year after year gripped by its fierce competitive format.
