Scottish Golf Courses

History beckons at Lombard Trophy

No Scot has enjoyed success at the yearly event since 1987

This summer offers Scotland’s golf clubs a chance to end a barren run in the Lombard Trophy that is stretching to nearly 30 years.

Despite its many talented club pros and amateurs, Scotland hasn’t managed to lift the coveted trophy since Martin Gray and Graham Drummond triumphed in 1987 representing Ladybank.

The PGA National Pro-Am Championship continues to attract hundreds of clubs across the UK and carries a total prize fund of more than £70,000.

The 2016 grand final is set to be staged at Portugal’s award-winning Pestana Vila Sol Golf & Resort hotel on the glorious Algarve in September.

Clubs north of the boarder can win a place in the grand final by coming through one of two regional finals at Cawder and Crieff on June 14 and 16 respectively.

The Lombard Trophy, which has Coca-Cola on board as a support sponsor, is the biggest pro-am in Europe and has an illustrious history.

Ryder Cup player Brian Waites and George Stockley won the very first event back in 1979 when it was also staged in Portugal. The winning pro in 2016 will receive a cheque for £12,000.

There is also a WPGA Lombard Trophy for women pros and amateurs with a north west qualifier in Dunham Forest, Cheshire on July 25 and an earlier one in Camberley Heath, Surrey on July 4.
