One of the UK’s leading amateur golf tournaments, the William Hunt Trilby Tour, captivated spectators at a thrilling Northamptonshire regional championship, held at Whittlebury Park.

Taking place on Thursday 28 June, the televised championship saw 144 competitors taking part in what is widely considered to be the closest experience to a professional tournament for amateur golfers.

The tour is popular with spectators for its ‘winner takes all’ competitive format, which culminated in a 3-hole shootout to decide the champion. After a close-fought competition, Tom Nimmo was named the winner, and will go on to compete in the William Hunt Trilby Tour Grand Final at Hull Golf Club on 30th August 2018.

Another level – Leamington & County

Leamington and County GC has the experience of over 100 years of golfing tradition combined with a healthy modern attitude to bringing new golfers into the game.

Leamington have undertaken some course developments this year too, a slightly altered layout now exists with a re-route and two changed holes which include a new 18th. A joint editor’s visit was required to check it all out, Mandy and myself chose the hottest day of the year to do it!

Nuneaton GC – 2018 style

The fortunes of Nuneaton Golf Club are doing rather nicely of late, a rate of progress to compare favourably with their famous son. Locally born Andy Sullivan played his golf here from picking up a club at the age of ten. He still lives in the area and during his downtime away from the European Tour is often to be found on the fairways of Nuneaton, still playing money games with old mates.
