ABOUT THE Lytham Trophy

In the early 1960s some of the senior Members of the Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Club felt that there was a gap in the amateur golfing calendar and the need for a major 72 hole scratch competition. Help was given by the English Golf Union to launch the event and to select entrants. The Scottish, Irish, Welsh and County Unions and various eminent players were approached for their support. All gave it willingly and so was born the Lytham Trophy.

It is held each year over the Bank Holiday Weekend at the beginning of May. It is now played solely at Royal Lytham with one round being played on the Friday and Saturday and the final two rounds, for those that have made the cut, on the Sunday.

Every winner takes away a replica for the handsome "Sputnick" trophy which was donated by Members subscriptions. All have been international golfers of the highest quality and many have gone on to be successful Professionals.

The entry is now of the highest calibre from all parts of the UK and Eire and in recent years from all over Europe.
