All the Regional Championships are broadcast by Sky Sports, with the series starting in late September and one episode a week is shown on a Monday night at 7pm. The show is very popular, drawing annual viewer numbers of up to 3.5 million, which makes it the largest amateur golf television series in the UK and Europe. Fan’s return every year for the unique and competitive ‘winner takes it all’ format of the tournament, as the top 4 players of the final go on a 3 hole shoot out competition to decide the champion! This is a pretty unique tournament within the golfing world and a proven favourite of fans and players alike.

the history of the trilby tour

Golf aficionado, and Savile Row top designer, Mr William Hunt, had the idea of a completely unique competition in 2007, with players entering the ‘winner takes all’ tournament. The Trilby Tour is the only amateur tournament where players compete in Pro conditions, including thousands of fans and under the pressure of a nationally televised event.

The tournament was designed to give players from all walks of life the chance to compete in Pro conditions, as well as getting their names recognised and featured on Sky Sports. William Hunt founded the tournament for the love of the game and to consistently challenge players, he has said “the Trilby Tour is about redefining the game and taking it to new heights. Constantly challenging yourself and pushing yourself to the limit. The Trilby Tour is the only event that offers amateur golfers a truly professional experience.”
