IGC welcomes all members to play the Royal Trophy events. First played in 1996, and originally called the Royal Under-21 Trophy (RU21), the competition is played during the summer months at eleven of Belgium’s “Royal” courses ( … of which there were 11 for many years, but that number is fast growing with the 50-year rule recently replacing “admission by royal prerogative”).
The final of the Royal Trophy 2019 was played at Royal Ostend. John Hughes, who was in fifth position with an aggregate net score of +41 before teeing of at Ostend, scored +3 on the day hereby improving his overall score by 18 and to win the Royal Trophy by 1 shot!
The Royal Trophy competition will be held throughout the year playing as many of the Royal Belgian courses as possible. The format will be stroke play and the aggregate net score against par from the best 4 cards submitted will count. In the event of a tie the leaders will play off over a full 18 holes to decide the outcome.
The Committee’s ruling on the day is final!
