Prince of Wales Amateur Challenge Trophies

The Prince of Wales Amateur Challenge Trophy has been played annually since 1978 when it was first played on the Duke's Course. Initially, County Golf Unions were invited to nominate a young man under the age of 21 to represent them in this prestigious 36 hole scratch tournament. In 1987, The Prince of Wales donated an additional trophy to be played for by young ladies.  

Competitors over the years have included Paul Way, Lee Westwood, Justin Rose and Gary Orr, who having won the Prince of Wales Trophy at Woburn in 1987 returned as a Professional and won the Dunhill British Masters in 2000.

The 2017 trophies were played for on Friday 18th August over 36 holes on the Duchess course.
