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 with a goal to create a new version of the Trilby Tour that was bigger, better and most importantly, more inclusive.
In 2022, female amateurs will also compete in the Trilby Tour and we are pleased to announce the tour will be returning to Sky Sports Golf with a new, ‘tour feel’ TV production.
The Trilby Tour will be 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 in September at the recently upgraded Dundonald Links, host venue of the 2022 Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open, where a field of 60 men and women will tee it up.
Sky Sports Golf presenter, Sarah Stirk, said: “I’m thrilled to be part of the all-new Trilby Tour for 2022. The game is in really good shape right now, and it’s great to see the Trilby Tour moving forward since Darwin Escapes purchased it last year”.
