About the Trilby Tour

The Trilby Tour announces a prestigious line-up for the 2011 Amateur Championships.

The Trilby Tour continues to go from strength to strength as it announces the line-up of an incredible club list for the 2011 season. Venues span the breadth of the country including Trevose in Cornwall and Rockliffe Hall in Durham whilst Slieve Russell in Co. Cavan hosts the Ireland Championship this summer.

Other venues include Donnington Grove in Berkshire, Goodwood in Sussex and Old Thorns in Hampshire.

Last year's clubs the KP Club, The Oxfordshire and Marriott Sprowston Manor make a return in 2011 to feature in the Trilby Tour for the second year running.

William Hunt says:

"We've got some cracking courses this year sure to test the toughest of players. I don't intend to make it easy for them - that's not what the Trilby Tour is about. But we'll see who rises to the top, and these boys love a challenge!"

About the Trilby Tour
The Trilby Tour is a multi event amateur golf tournament event created by William Hunt in 2007 where amateurs compete under professional conditions for the chance to win the top Winner Takes All prize. It has since grown at an incredible pace to become the biggest and most stylish amateur golf tournament in the UK

Each round is broadcast as part of a summer series on Sky Sports with the top prize going to the winner of the final event. Players pay a £250 entry fee and are kitted out with William Hunt outfit, trilby hat, limited edition Callaway golf bag, and caddy outfit.

A Professional Event for Amateurs
The appeal of the tournament lies in its unusual competitive format and concludes with a 4-man, 3-hole shootout to decide the winner.

The tournament has had an incredibly enthusiastic response from the Amateur community with players hailing it the closest experience to a Professional event, playing under the pressures of an international televised event. Die-hard fans return year after year gripped by its fierce competitive format:

"I love to see grown men shaking at the first tee – some of them think they have it all under control and then they fold like a deck of cards in front of the cameras. And then they relive that moment when the screening comes out – now that's hard."

"It's fantastic to see the Trilby Tour community growing; we have some guys coming back each year – I call them Trilby Tourians. There's a brilliant camaraderie on and off the course and we've even created our own mini Facebook on the website where players can meet up and get together for a practice round or social."

2010
The 2010 tournament took place across UK, Ireland and Scotland in search of 8 regional champions.

Each Regional Champion and Eleven Runners-Up went through to the Amateur Final, culminating in the Trilby Tour's trademark '3 Hole Play Off' and unique Winner Takes All Finale where Chris Dyson was crowned the 2010 Trilby Tour Champion. 25yr old Tom Reid from Fulwell won the Professional title beating top European Tour pros in his first big tournament win.
