HistoryEdit

The event was founded as a boys' golf tournament in 1935 at the Moor Park Golf Club by Austin Carris. The competition was adopted in 1988 by the English Golf Union as the English Boys Under 18 Open Amateur Stroke-Play Championship.[1] It is now played at various venues around England, but returns to Moor Park at five year intervals reflecting the inauguration of the trophy at this course.

FormatEdit

The championship is open to golfers of all nationalities in possession of a playing handicap not exceeding 1.4 under the CONGU Unified Handicapping System or a comparable scheme operated by a recognised overseas Golf Union, Federation or Association. Players must be under 18 at the start of the year in which the championship is played. It consists of 72 holes of stroke play over four days, 18 holes being played each day. After 36 holes, the leading 60 competitors and all those tying for 60th place play a further 36 holes over the next two days.[2]
