Bridgestone Chase Your Dream Trophy (Men's)

2017 CYD Trophy men

Competition Format

We’re working with Bridgestone to help people chase their dreams through golf.

If you were a men’s medal or stableford winner at your club in 2016 you can enter the Bridgestone Chase Your Dream Trophy.

The top 120 club winners in each of four regions, based on nett score in relation to CSS, will qualify for a regional final, playing 18-holes of medal stroke play.

The leading players at each regional final will go forward to the national final, played on 15 August during England Golf Week at Woodhall Spa.

The winner will be England’s champion male handicap golfer of the year. In addition, the top nine players will play in the pro-am at the Bridgestone Challenge in September 2017.

The winning team there will play in the pro-am at the British Masters supported by Sky Sports at Close House Golf Club, Northumberland, on Wednesday 27 September 2017.

This championship was formerly known as the England Golf Gold Medal.
