After enjoying a memorable return in 2022 – a season that saw men and women compete together for the first time in the competition’s 15-year history – this year’s Trilby Tour will once again culminate in the Grand Final at the prestigious Dundonald Links in Ayrshire, Scotland.
The 2023 Trilby Tour curtain-raiser will be the Championship of Ayrshire at Dundonald Links – venue for this year’s Women’s Scottish Open and Final Qualifying for The Open Championship – on June 12.
From there, qualifying continues with the Championship of Yorkshire at Kilnwick Percy Resort and Golf Club, Pocklington, on July 10 and the Championship of Oxfordshire at The Springs Resort & Golf Club, Wallingford, on July 17.
In each qualifying event, 15 golfers will advance to the climactic Grand Final at Dundonald Links on September 25 for the chance to follow in the footsteps of Andrew Corssen and be crowned the Trilby Tour Champion for 2023
