Trilby Tour returns to Wallingford golf resort for second year

The prestigious amateur golf tournament is returning to The Springs Golf Club next week as part of the Oxfordshire leg of the tour.

The event will be teeing off at the Darwin Escapes owned Wallingford golf club for the second year on Tuesday 30th July.

The Trilby Tour, which has been running since 2007, has once again been hosting a series of regional championships across the UK with an aim to find the top 10 amateur players for the International Grand Final, where one winner will be crowned the official Trilby Tour World Champion.

Last year saw Rob Perry of Bletchingley Golf Club take the title of 2018 Champion of Oxfordshire with a score of 37pts.

Head of Golf, Ashley Pheasant said: “The William Hunt Trilby Tour Championship of Oxfordshire returns to The Springs for the second consecutive year and the competitors are going to see a course which has developed leaps and bounds since the event was played last year.

“With more continued investment, new tees and the new second hole in play, this year’s Oxfordshire event promises to be one that all Trilby Tourians will remember for a long time!”

As part of the tour, the tournament has already visited Norfolk, Lancashire, Cumbria, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Worcestershire and Darwin Escapes’ holiday resort and golf club The Kilnwick Percy in Yorkshire.
The Trilby Tour will also be visiting Sussex before the International Grand Final taking place at Hull Golf Club on Tuesday 29th August.

Trilby Tour Director, Toby Morgan said: “After fantastic events last year we are thoroughly looking forward to returning to The Springs to find our 8th Regional Champion in 2019.

“We started the tournament with the intention of putting the ordinary amateur golfer at the heart of the action – as far as we’re 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. It’s going to be an experience to remember. Good luck to all those taking part.”

The golf tournament at The Springs Golf Club will be open to spectators and the first tee-off is at 6.51am.
