Tournament Overview

The British Amateur, called the "Seniors Amateur Championship" in the United Kingdom, was launched by The R&A in 1969 to help select a Great Britain & Ireland side to play in the World Senior Amateur Team Championship. Though the British Amateur, played for the first time at Formby, was an instant success, the team event did not survive beyond 1969. Charlie Green has been the most successful player in the history of the event, winning six times in seven years beginning in 1988. Like the U.S. Senior Amateur, players must be over the age of 55 to play. Notable courses played over the years include Royal County Down, Royal Portrush, Royal Aberdeen, and Walton Heath.

The Seniors Open Amateur Championship was the first championship to be initiated by The R&A. It made its debut at Formby in 1969 as a qualifying event for the World Senior Amateur Team Championship, which had begun in 1967 under the auspices of the World Amateur Golf Council. The winner was Reg Pattinson, who went on to play in the Team Championship.

Initially, the World Senior Amateur Championship was to be played every two years, alternating with the competition for the Eisenhower Trophy. However, 1969 turned out to be its final year. The success of the Seniors Open Amateur Championship was evident from the start and it became an event in its own right.

Today the championship attracts a wide international field. Before the present format was introduced, various alternatives were tried, in order to satisfy increasing entry demands.

It began as a 36-hole stroke play event, held over two days. The handicap limit was five and the field was restricted to 100. Two courses were used in 1971, allowing an entry of 250. The handicap limit was increased to nine.

In 1974, a limit of 130 was imposed. Subsidiary competitions were introduced according to age group: 55-59, 60-64 and 65 and over. A fourth age group was added in 1975 for the over 70s and the entry limit was increased to 140. The special categories changed in 1999, to one only for the 65 and over age group.
