and quickly became one of the most popular amateur golf events in UK. Following several successful years, and following the global pandemic Covid-19, the Trilby Tour ran into financial trouble and folded.
Having had a previous association as host venues, and seeing the potential the Trilby Tour still had, Darwin Escapes acquired the brand in 2021 and launched a new version of the Trilby Tour that was bigger, better and most importantly, more inclusive.
After enjoying a memorable return in 2022 – a season that saw men and women compete together for the first time in the competition’s history, more changes have been implemented including a new live streaming partnership with LIVE Sport Now meaning the Trilby Tour has been even more accessible. In 2023 all of the three Trilby Tour Championships have been completed as well as the Grand Final which took place on Monday the 25th of September at Dundonald Links. Karen Beattie was crowned champion and became the first Trilby Tour Female winner in the tournament’s history. News regarding next season’s Trilby Tour 2024 will be revealed in due course.
The Trilby Tour is played across a series of venues in the Home Counties and the north of England and Scotland, with the best players from each Championship event making it to the Grand Final at Dundonald Links, host venue of the 2023 FREED Women’s Scottish Open and Final Qualifying for The Open Championship.
